Re: What did you do at the weekend?

1. Had a 2-year olds birthday party with lots of visiting ankle-biters at our end of the lane.

2. Took the bike out for a blast to shake the cobwebs off (and get it MOT'd).

One of those was a significantly more scary event than the other. :o

Re: The Tea Break Bench

Confucius he say: "A contest of speed between a Pekinese and a Dachshund is of brief and passing interest to the Greyhound" ;) I took my greyhound to work this week after a winter hibernation - been a while since I've been on it, but once I'd figured out what all the knobs and levers do again, :D I...

Re: Pic of the Day

I fully support Mike's sentiment - I'm just a happy bystander looking on in admiration, what little I can do is only in response to the teams request for extra help when it gets time to get it wet. You will get loads of hangers on when that happen's, it's natural. For now I'm just a Donald fan happy...

Was it Geoff that took the coloured "mirror" shots in Dec 1966 ?

Re: Pic of the Day

Hi Stew if you think the pic looks good you should see K7 in the flesh so to speak totally mind blowing! By chance I got a Wednesday afternoon/ evening session in recently and boy she is amazing to work on! Can't quite put it into words how I feel when working on her now things are fast taking shap...

Re: The Tea Break Bench

Something for the weekend sir? :D Mine is too underpowered - but does mean you have to be ruthless with it, which means good fun at less than ludicrous speeds... I reckon the 2 litre 160 BHP would do me fine and fit the chassis better - Oh and all the Mk3's are design flawed in Europe, springs too h...

Re: The Tea Break Bench

Only 170BHP? I dream of 170!! ;-) Got 130 in an MX5 (yeah, go on, get it over with). Base model, a bit scruffy, no traction control, tin-can ford up front, inline short throw gearbox, no luxuries. More fun on wet roads than it has any right to be, bugger all to insure and not thirsty. I remember how...
