how old are you tam?

I'm 35, don't know if that's classed as old or not... :?

I've grown up surrounded by old bikes 'n cars. Been down a couple of times for the Pioneer run (London to Brighton for VERY old motorbikes) as a support driver for my dad (1913 two speed BSA) and uncle (1903 Ormond - precursor to the Velocette).

Owned a few questionably classic cars: MGb, Beetle, Scimitar etc. Sadly the missus refuses to drive anything without power steering or "smells a bit funny" so currently classic-less. :(

I like the Bonny - my Dad had a T100 he sold years ago. :(

Do you stop half way through an afternoon run, whip out a spanner and tighten everything up again? :lol:

Tam, that cottons seriously nice 8)

Other than big but slow bikes I tend to favour 2 strokes, one day I'll get a Bantam although a Francis Barnet or an Ariel Arrow would be cool provided they'd been restored to death :lol: I admit I'm not mechanically adept, I just like old bikes, not fixing them :roll:

I've always fancied a little Bantam in trials trim. There's one up for grabs on fleabay at the moment that would do:

Not familiar with the Ariel Arrow. As a kid we had an Ariel 3 which never ran properly. We used to push it to the top of a hill and three of us clamber aboard and sail down the hill. That was until my brother fell off and took the skin off his back. :(
