No evidence of physical injury.

Project BSA

A bit of work on the BSA. Mainly checking things bought and seeing what I have/what's needed. A lot of buying things then re selling bits of them. Then realising things bought are junk or need other bits that are like rocking horse dung. Lean it all together for a mock up. This makes it psychologically seem like its getting somewhere. I'm hung up on the rear wheel at the moment. I't's becoming a money pit. So many little bits needed to get a complete rear wheel.

Wicked piece of history. Don Cates Mort Found.

This was on the show and go.
So cool to find these old customs from yesteryear like this. Here are the pics from show and go.

Fight for something

This battle has raged for a while now.
"Bikes Meet: 17:00 5th November 2010 @ Villiers Street
Gather outside Westminster City Hall by 18:30.
"People should not be afraid of their government; governments should be afraid of their people."
Show Westminster City Council that you won't be used as a cash cow any longer."
