Thanks for those. One too small and one too expensive. Will be trawling charity shops. Total outlay so far about four quid. eBay brass bathroom bolts :facepalm:

Fishing umbrella in the loft.

I’m thinking port, whiskey and beer. Nibbles.

i might have to find something similar, rocking chair perhaps. and some tweed old boy
Christ We’ll all be turning up with Clelland pathfinders or what ever that bike was Geoff Apes was pictured next to decked out in tweed and a pipe !

I'm all for donning Geoff Apse attire in the spirit of fancy dress but I draw the line at those bikes which are NOT mountain bikes. Off-road, yes. Eccentric and whacky just like their inventor, sure. But not MTBs and not welcome in any MTB event. Ever! In fact, they should all-bar-one be detroyed and the sole survivor put in a museum. In a locked store cupboard. Under a tarpaulin. But I do like a bit of tweed and a flat cap. (See photo: me, a year ago.)

THM will need a Range Rover if guns are coming, but I fear people will think he's just turned up at Gatcombe on the wrong weekend if this gets any more CountryFile/Horse&Hound-like.

Anybody else feeling an urge to buy and restore retro furniture :shock: :lol:
Yes, but I'm thinking in the style of the bike-themed chairs. They're gorgeous.

Just working out a way to hinge the tray and supporting arm to make it all fold neatly.

And perhaps a lending library?

Light reading. Miscellanies perhaps. I have a number on different themes.

An exquisite occasion worthy of the finest wines and comestibles. Dress for dinner or it's the service revolver.


If do get my arse in gear, I’ll be the one wearing this;
