And if they don't have there own thread, they might be in this one, or just lost in the workshop somewhere to be discovered in a few years.

The P7 has had a hard life and is a bit ropey so thought a service along with some fresh bits mite make it look a bit better

Before...

The merlin has lots of club roost bits on so will be having cr beartraps on when they arrive. Changed the seat and put on set of wildgrippers (still one of my favourite tyres)

Not sure what to do with this yet, was an impulse buy.

Nice selection of bikes. Particularly drawn to the Diablo and the Saracen...

I can't believe its been just over a year since I last posted!
A quick update. The Dyna tech and Kona Hahhana Where sold a while back. I've still not done anything with the Merlin!

Have a new project though, Bought myself an old Zaskar frame, and have been collecting parts. So when I get more time I will start a build up and add some photos.

Another update. The Zaskar is still just a bare frame, so is the Alan. The Merlin is now in bits.
The Megamo has pride of place in the man cave but is kept fighting fit and ready for action.

New and not so new additions include a Parkpre Alumax frame, a single speed Trek Antelope with Drops, and a Muddy Fox Courier Comp (second time I've owned it now)
The P7, at the moment rolling on Cityslickers.
