Where do you find these tyres from you bugger...!

I asked that same question.

Apparently they are hand carved especially for him, by a retired Continental worked living in a cave in the mountains close to Bavaria.


Don't give the secret away - it's hard enough to get him to do it as it is :D

I know how it feels, with the real world stopping play. :oops: so I understand mate, I really do.

The tyres really finish it, you have thought about it, fettled it and not overcooked any of it.

A fitting tribute IMHO.

I know you do mate. I think this doesn't even come close to your sacrifice.

Lets hope I can do the rest justice :)

Right, this has taken too long to post up, but I have eventually found the time to finish the Formula One off and as the sun popped out for an hour I took some pics this morning.

It is all done (apart from snipping the cables :oops: ). I have basically striped the whole bike, cleaned, rerfurbed, sprayed, replaced, you name it I've done it…

I think it looks really smart and somewhat different from the bike that arrived.

Anyway, here she is. John Samways training bike :)

Stunning, simply stunning.

I was going to suggest you now go and get it good and muddy... but on second thoughts.. please don't.

Thanks Neil.

Don't worry, I won't :)

I think I might wait till it's a little bit drier before I take her for a spin
