Nice creation kwackboy.  :thumb:  A good solution to a dead space.

I'm a workshop woodworker (not site 'chippie') and would make the observation that a corner woodworking bench is not favourable for long lengths. I have a short bench near the end of my garage because of space to house the bikes, the car etc. I've had to put a vice at either end to play with both ends of a piece of longish wood. I know from my working days that a clear 2m either way is a minimum from a bench mounted saw so.... good luck playing with those mitres!  :icon_wink:

@ V-Twin

I have to confess that my flooring is the cheap stuff from B&Q.

We use to have carpet but after a minor flood we had to rip it up. We bought it as a temporary cheap fix while we looked for better rubber flooring.

Its very soft, nice to walk on and it's warm however, it's easily damaged. To be honest, it's been around 5 months or so since I fitted the flooring and it's seems to be holding up very well.

It cost about £70 ....

Kwackboy, I see you too have the rubber interlocking matting??
How do you rate it over a painted concrete floor?
Any down sides?
I ask as I'm getting ready to fit battery storage in my garage.
I meant to ask  2112 but forgot.

Treated myself to a new mitre saw some time ago however, I didn't have anywhere to use it so I built a new work bench and turned an unused corner of my man cave into a woodworking area.
After some shocking wood prices I used reclaimed wood from a local reclamation yard and saved lots of money, In fact, if I'd have bought new wood the cost was nearly four times as much .. :shock:

Anyway, after two days graft I've finally finished the bench. Just need a nice wood vice and a few more tools  :lala:

Thanks for posting this Joe, I didn't know about this bike, until seeing your post, and I am delighted to see BSA ( albeit Mahindra owned) making a come back.
This Gold Star looks fantastic - especially to us older motorcyclists, anyway. Many of the originals were fitted with clip ons and rear sets, and were very fast in their 50's heyday. I prefer the more raised handlebars and upright stance of the bike in the video. I have had a few BSA 500/600 singles, but these were slow steady side valve M20/M21 models. I think this bike could be a good seller, if it is well made, reliable, handles and has decent performance. I certainly like the looks, apart from the big radiator, and very wide exhaust pipe, but I could overlook that, as the rest of the bike looks great.

I hope the new model has an electric start, as there is no way I would risk trying to kick start a " Goldie " these days!. I will have a test ride, when available, and dependent on my impression, and the price , would consider buying one.
Thanks for bring this to our/my attention
