During the lock down.....
« on: March 24, 2020, 04:43:17 PM »
If anyone gets to the end of all of their projects, I have asked Steve if I can link a story or two from my web site for anyone interested.

The first one is about a 1955 BSA Bantam Major

Enjoyed that.

Hi Ash and thanks Mike,
The broken link is probably because I culled it from the site and the last Hyperlink is probably incomplete.  I was going to gradually spoon feed an odd article, perhaps each week but it’s not important.  There may not be much interest anyway.

The guy up here who has 3 immaculate CBXs, a 70’s Norton Commando yet to turn a wheel and a Benelli SEi (plus lots of other 2 and 4 wheel exotica) now has the CD175 and is doing his usual ‘as new’ resto job on it.

I’m really worried by this lock down - what if I run out of projects?

Ian

Not sure how many remember the Tim Hunkin series back in the late 80’s titled ‘The Secret Life Of’...... where he explained the history and function of various machines, some cringeworthy, almost Python like cartoon bits with lots of interesting facts and archive footage.

Here’s one about the Motor Car - there are lots of others if you dig around

Excellent video, entertaining. Father and daughter in the Morris film were a bit chummy :o, different times.
