I'm 27 too... what's a torch (in British terms)? In the US that'd be a propane powered flame used by plumbers.

the problem is when you have lots of hobbies...

skateboarding
snowboarding
mountainbiking (retro)
torches

it starts getting a bit expensive - and im only 27



I bloody love that you have a torch hobby (torch is a flashlight AmeyB - and thanks for the kind words :-))

Cars (retro)
Sailing (retro)
Mountainbiking (retro...!)
Golf
Martial arts
R/C cars
Mountain climbing
Guitars (playing, but also collecting, it seems!)

& they're just the ones that I manage to find the time (which is just as much of an issue as money) for! Part of the attraction of retrobiking is that it can be good value - I love being able to buy all the things I wanted when I was a teenager! :D

I'm forever getting snide comments about parcels of 'car bits' or 'bike bits' arriving, but sod em! :) All my retrobikes put together cost less than a decent modern bike, & my retrocar (which I'm forever spending money on), costs me a hell of a lot less than the repayments a lot of people make without considering it abnormal.

I am not in denial.
People keep saying "Your in denial" and I keep telling them "No I am not"
I refuse and refute this denial thing. Not listening LA LA LA LA LA LA LA LAAAAAA.


OOOooooo look at the nice shiney things.

Justification? There is none. Retro madness is just that.

But in the words of Sheryl Crow, if it makes you happy, it cant be that bad.

Yeah well, there's more to that story than what the press reported.
