Cheers, it’s slowly coming together- although you could argue there was nothing wrong with it in the first place

Just needed a bit of titillation

nice wheels ^^ but MOST folk would just put you down as a pretentious tosser if you turned up in a 911 with an MTB strapped to the roof -

That said I'd take the risk especially if you could make an entrance like Regans dude with his Dale and getting the front wheel out of the front of that car is also way cool.

If I had the money I always thought I'd buy a really tidy Lancia HF Integrale, But that 1997 - 911 isn’t too shabby and I suppose I could be drawn into compromising a bit 8)

Slow progress at the Mo

found a period "like for like" saddle to replace the very faded - was black once upon a time ! , so we're looking a little sharper and the missing logo/decal has been reinstated. It took a while to find one without scuffs, just need to soak with one with leather cream now to soften the leather up.

Foz came good on the other Magura - This one’s got matching drill holes for the lines so without delay it got the same treatment as the other one- I now have a master and the slave or Left and right if you prefer.



how it arrived after a quick clean - well worn but all there :D Foz is dah man

Looking good :D . We'll have to compare notes when you put your decals on. As I'm a bit nervous about cocking mine up
