Once again thanks for the thoughts guys, it really is quite heart warming
I'm not going to give you grim pictures of my face, believe me it still hurts but instead here is a picture of the bike and also the offending bit of wood
My friend Mark has a bit of a sick sence of humour and has kindly mounted it on a wood plaque for me, this will hang on my office wall once I am back up to speed
Sadly the bike it no more, I have had it for nearly 30 years but having looking over it just now for the first time I have discovered two big cracks in the top tube from the force of the crash and I don't think I will be using the forks again
Bear in mind the damage is purely from the locking front wheel, there was no frontal impact...
I am still picking my way though orders, a little at a time, but if you have something outstanding I will get there in the end, thanks for your patience
