Bawbee tagged me
Gotta write 7 things about me apparently, then put 7 links to other bloggers.
I only know 9 bloggers, and they'm already on Rickee's or Bawbee's lists...

An I don't know how to put links in all stylee like, Wait, turns out I do...

1. I had blonde hair when I was a kid.
2. I won a contest at Butlins for putting the most things in a match box. "Any advance on 36" the man said, "er...347..." says me. 10 year old tweaker.
3. I lived in Berlin for a bit.
4. I designed the toilet floor on the class442 train.
5. I have fallen off many motorbikes.
6. I like my Briggs and Stratton mower, when it starts...Makes the shed smell like a proper shed.
7. I am full of amazing ideas, that usually never come to fruition.

There, done.

I love Gaffing

So, Thursday at the Sham'o'crete Bawbee pinged his kingpin. Being the Gaffer that I am, I fixed it. Had to take the KP out of the red baseplate that Poulet snapped in the summer, then hammered it into Bawbee's. Sorted.
Replaced the pivot cup to despite "there's nowt wrong with it..."

The Skatebus

She died that we might rock...

OK, Went to that.

Saw this

Was part of a four man CR250M team, all in the pre-74 class. This was the first race winner. Guy told me, some geezer had 3 of them and put a team together. Bloke riding thissun was invited to join team, 'cos he's a bit quick. Sounded so crisp, £6k's worth mind...

Pretty RM125 up for sale, dunno how much. Sorta half restored, reasonably clean but poor paint job. For my money, they gotta look factory fresh or proper used. Anything between seems half hearted.

This made me laff, C50/Junior MX hybrid, fabulous in its pointlesness, even got the red bull can on the susp unit remote reservoir. I want one.

'cos I'm fickle, and a dreamer, I'm over the CR250M, S'all about the YZ250G...
