Oh lovely Bob, they came out around 1950 but look older really, more 1930's, goes with the fireplace but those speakers look a bit modern

A postman came down the drive just before Christmass when it was outside and said, I didn't think I'd see you on an electric bike, he thought it was new, when I told him it was 60 year's old and was a petrol engine, he was amazed. Got the lights sorrted using 4 5watt 7.5 zeners mounted in a heat sink, keeps the voltage to just over 7.8 volts. Looking forward to spring now and taking it to the boozer on sunday's.

Can you get knobbly tyres to fit ?

Well done Bob, a credit to your restoration skills.

Oooh naughty, my dear old mum had to put up with us using the kitchen for bikes then motorbikes. I once sprayed a tank in my bedroom and, as it was winter and I didn't want it to bloom, kept the window and door shut. Woke up with a bit of a headache that morning and a layer of Custom Flake Metallic Red or somesuch over everything, no doubt my nervous system's completely shot according to the product labeling nowadays Got married and the last thing I got away with was baking the 2 stroke exhaust in the oven after Dagging it, bit smokey, forgot the oil inside...

Heating Triumph cylinder heads in the oven to renew valve guides and putting aluminium bits in the dishwasher to clean them.

Mind you, got no one to moan at me now.

Ah yes, crank cases in the oven and main bearings in the freezer to drop them in easily and heat resistant paint on cylinders baked off in the oven

A mate of mine and I moved all the furniture out of his parents' sitting room whilst they were away for a week in order to strip and repaint an 18' sailing dinghy. Just got away with it despite the lingering aroma of polyurethane varnish and Nitromors when they returned.
