Wow, you had a good day for it.

Today I took some photo's of my new road project, which is a mystery frame from the late 1970's.

Shortly to be respayed Flamboyant Lime.

In a minute I am off out for another night ride on the Roberts, in preparation for Mayhem, and also because I like night riding.
