I've fiddled in the shed, tidied up, built a drystone wall, painted, walked the dog every day for weeks, cooked, cleaned, built another drystone wall, boarded a loft, shopped responsibly, fettled my motorcycle, sat on it and made brumming noises, built a sensible bike, altered another sensible bike, been tempted by exotica that's too small and too expensive..............

Then somebody listed something on here. I've decided the mayhem lobster is no more. My wild schemes have come to nought what with the Cresta Polar Bear crisis.
So I spent a paltry sum on a frame only. Once it arrives I will abuse it badly with Some Trigger style love and affection. Trigger Mk2 will be plunderd and rebuilt as a sensible sexy restrained stylish classy Courier Comp with some period parts.

The new boy will either be hardtail 69er or half fat 26er. I fancy the 69er with nasty cheap bouncy suntour forks.

Any guesses? Have you been paying attention around here lately......?

This will get a makeover in tasteful and hand on the baton...

Longun is a very kind fellow, a large and generous man.

And i'm not too proud to beg.
