Looks brilliant Mike. Will look great once built for sure.
You were lucky to get some sun these days.
Nice tyres those Vedestriens, though I do see it says for dry conditions. Be no good up here then :)

Yes, flam burgundy it is!

I'll be using some Michelin tyres, good for all weather.
Sunny by cool today, Jamie! I took the layer of ice off the bird bath once photos were taken

Sadly not.
Which reminds me, got to go to Tesco with the forks to get some nail varnish for any emergencies!
Best to do before I build it up.
