At last, I've made some progress on the Shed. I wouldn't say that it's anywhere near being built yet, but I've taken a step in the right direction. I've cut it in half. I know, I know, but what's a girl to do? Mrs BC and I can hardly lift the two end panels between us, let alone the 15ft long side ones (are they 15ft? I think so, or close to that measurement) so I took my saw and I cut the long one without doors and windows, in half. And what a fine job I made of it too, even though I do say so myself. This task, I completed today, and on Saturday I creosoted 3/4 of the panels and a few other bits and bobs. What a pong. Now I just need to find the bolts I bought several months ago and we're off.
Yesterday was the annual trip to Perth for the autojumble hosted by the Central Scotland section of the VMCC. Weather was cracking, Shorty reported a good turn out, and I missed all the Cubbie bits - although I was tempted by a whole Cubbie - very smart it was, black and silver, a snip at £1750. No racing 'bars on it though. Bumped into Harry - Glider Man, talked about plans for Fife so will keep you posted on that one. We came back over the Cairn O' Mount, lovely view from up top. No place for a car with a blown exhaust though.
Ooooh yers, it was like Christmas here the other day. I opened the "Cubbie seat sized parcel" of Cub bits from Bantam Cub. This is my next project - after I've built Mrs BC's sidecar and got the Bultaco running, oh and returned my MZ Skorp back to road going status... Anyway, what do you think was in the parcel? How about some heavy duty forks, shocks, lightweight mudguards, gaiters, levers, a couple of speedo-looking-clocks, a spare barrel and a couple of bits that I couldn't put a name to. No idea if they are part of a bike or perhaps a tool of some kind. Answers in a comment please.
PS are you fed up with the Coventry slide show yet?
