SPINDLE in town today

Went over to Benny's today to work on the shovel and Spindle was there. He was in action on the lathe (which was a first for him) and was watching Benny do some work on his very long build. Should be ready for the summer with any luck!

I also took some pics of his sportster too...

...the sun was shining all day in Wales when we went to pick up Paul's bike. Never expected that!

Benny's New Bike blue and Steve's new copper?

Today we went to Wales...

...and ended up in Swindon with Steve and Johnny of Britstockers fame. We made the journey to Port Talbot in just over 2 hours in beautiful weather. The sun was shining and so was the company. We picked up Paul's bike and then headed east to Swindon to collect Benny's reborn Triumph...thanks to Steve & Johnny. By the time we arrived back in the Midlands it was pissing down.

A great day out. Shame it wasn't on the bikes!

I have been working on it now solidly for what seems ages and I only have 48 things posted...
I think I should get a normal job, I really do!

Yet another fine creation by Benny Thomas. This is a bit of a departure for Benny but as always he puts his creative abilities to work to create a 'new' old bike.

...and it's freezing today again. Sorted out and identified all the parts. Now I have to tag everything and load it into the Jeep. This find was really cool but is taking a lot longer than I thought it would to sort out for sale in the next week or two.
