I'm most impressed by your Shackleton's high chair in your garage. It looks lovely you know.....

@TLP. .. your garage is more like a padded room with the amount of time you spend in there with your bike in bits trying to find out what's wrong  :smirk:

I've never had a bike in that many pieces all at once, even after crashing.

Yeah, but no, but yeah, I'd do the same if I had a Central Heating Radiator in my garage.
So then lots of photos to show us the gruesome bits, the shiny bits and how it all fits together  :icon_drool5: :fix:
Look at the clock and the calendar.
It'll never be now again.
So just get out and do it.
As fast as you possibly can.

I like the black frame and engine. Scientific tests carried out at the University of Cleverness have proven quite unequivocally, that changing from silver to black is better.

It's known as a fact now.

This will be better than new when it's all done.  :text-goodpost:
Unless it's got two wheels and an engine slung in the middle, I'm not interested.
