The monster needs a work out. I insist you try it down the slope I wiped out on at the bings. I need assurance it wasn't just me being a clumsy sod.

Just back in from seeing Dylan Moran at a wee pub in Falkirk. Superb... trying out new material in small clubs around the country, it was a bit higgledy piggledy, occasionally referring to a big bunch of notes, but just all part of his dishevelled charm.

That sounds great zz, wish I'd been there, black books is a very underrated show. Indeed anything would have been better than watching the tic pump killie tonight, me and the boys left the stadium totally depressed, suppose it could have been worse, could have been the Huns :twisted:

Have just given the Bridgestone ( this one http://www.retrobike.co.uk/forum/viewtopic.php?t=146592 ) a wipe with an oily rag......much of the rust and marks are coming off easily - its dust and dirt mainly on the frame, no rust to speak of :D Must have been kept in a dry garage or cellar.

Spokes are all rusty though as are derry mountings, but other than that its pretty sound. Looks all original apart from tyres.
