Arghhhhhhhh!!!!!!!!

One of Santa’s helpers has just advised me that after I’ve done all the running around for school plays, work parties, trips to family all over the country etc etc, I have about an hour and a half spare time before the big day! :facepalm:
So, tubes, tyres, wheels fitted. New stem bolt sorted, and mudguards finally adjusted just right…. sorry for lack of pics, just not enough time to sod about.
But here she is as I walked out of the garage.

Just cables, chain and ‘Miss Marple pimping’ to do… :xmas-wink:

WOW! That is looking brilliant, what a great job.
Wrapping might be a big job too :)

Well done to you both

Cheers Jamie,
I’ve found some huge red Santa sacks (almost the size of a single duvet cover). They should do the job. :xmas-cool:

Rushed French bike to you sir. :xmas-big-grin:

Either way a great job, and the race is now on to get it completed before the overly jolly fat man in the red suit comes to collect it for distribution to it's new pilot.

The bugger better not scratch it on its way down the chimney or I'll have his guts for garters! :xmas-wink:

Cheers, velocipede….. the specification given by the wife was; like her Pashley from down the road, only much much better…. It needs to make her bike look cheap! :shock:

As you can guess, they’re not friends… :facepalm:

Negative vibes aside…me and the lad have enjoyed the excuse for extra shed time… :xmas-wink:
