So after the karting day...

I went shopping. I love a bit of shopping now and again, don't you? Real girlie stuff, ya know, things like.....bike frames...wheels...distributors and the like. Hah! No clothes or make up and airy fairy shopping for me, uh uh. A guy called George spoke to me at one of my trips down to Central Scottish VMCC, and told me he had a garage full of Cub related bits that had to go, was I interested? Hmmm, let me think a while....YEP! It took a few weeks but I started compiling a list of Terrier bits that I need, and after passing it on to George, was delighted when he said he had quite a few of the bits I was looking for. So a quick visit on the way home from karting was in order. And I got....a couple of frames, one complete with plunger units - primary reason for getting them was to get the plunger units, but you never know when a frame will come in handy. A box of electrical compants including an ignition switch and complete distributor, a few spare wheels or various sizes, just in case, and a couple of sets of light weight forks.

With one of the wheels came a not too bad sprocket which might be a suitable replacement for the one that's on Terry, oh yes and a nice pair of handlebars with the levers 'built in'. So that should all help the project whizz along, if only I can find the time to crack on with it before, errrr, June....

Buy it while the buying is good! As I go through stuff for my Triumph projects, I get the last laugh on people who gave me grief about buying stuff and storing it away. You can always trade off or sell the extra stuff. Just wish I'd bought more back then.

Well....2013...what are the odds? And why not 2012? I might even have a flutter meself. JEAN, don't start that one on here! Larry, you're right, I like to think that one day, I'll be the one with the shed full of Triumph spares and I might be able to help someone else out, like so many have helped me. Thank you Bodger, how soon could it be shipped over??

It's OK Jon/Jean. I've looked quite closely and she's definitely a she!
