Blimey, you boys are a bit quick off the mark.

I'm on holiday this week and I'm away on business for a couple of days next week, so it's going to be middle of the month before I have a pile of scrap in my garage. Still, at least I'm not in any bidding wars with you boys :wink:

Just got back with my trusty rusty steed. I cannot believe I paid £25 for this....... (suitably ambiguous)

Messaged the seller and explained reason for my price limit and she agreed straight away.

As I paid the full amount what am I allowed to do prior to running? Make it safe?

When I got back the first thing that happened was one of the dogs peed up the front wheel. :shock: Obviously not impressed

I presume we all reveal our rides on here at the end of the month?

First purchase !! Great stuff

I guess make safe is a good option :D

I am thinking rather than knowing what we all have before be a good surprise on the day?

Ok presumably we bring proof of purchase/spending with us, or rely on honourable behaviour?

Just trying to gauge the cut of your jibs. (Keeping nautical references going)

Rules are for the adherence of fools and the guidance of wise men............

Does this look safe to you? Never seen one this bad. Will it disintegrate?
