Thanks Mike
I've been a bit quiet of late, plenty or work in the workshop but nothing much to ride to.
Today though I had a job near Camberwell London. Just a boiler house in a block of flats.

On the way home I stopped of in Balham (gateway to the south). This is where I buy the sewing machines we use at work. We've just bought this one. It's a cylinder arm machine. The one we've got is just about worn out.

From this gentleman, Mr Rushton. He's been here smoking the same cigar for 60 years!

Last week on my way back from London I visited here again.

Its all his private collection, the guys that take care of them for him undertake commercial restorations in his shop. Well worth a visit if your ever passing by. They will even give you a free coffee! They are open Saturday mornings and are happy for organised bike runs to make a visit if prior arranged.

Yes it was Eero. I think here it was called a Triumph Hurricane.

Here's something from the Internet

Still a bit quiet at the moment Ariel traveling wise. I did though pop down to Southampton on my WNG to pick up some aluminium for a little project I'm playing with at the moment. I'll bore you with that later.
I had no bother getting the metal back home just that the way I strapped it on meant the saddle sprigs didn't work. Didn't realise how well they work till they didn't.

5:30 in the morning and I'm off for my first job in Woolwich then up to Stockport over night for the trip up to Dent. I've everything packed for camping but being the ever pessimist I've brought my umbrella. I know its normally warm and sunny in Cumbria in March but you never know.

Hmmm, you squashed the lid of your lovely top box with that spoiler.

Did a bit Vincent but it popped back out. :)
Did get a few envious looks from the boy racers.

Just arrived at the Queen Elizabeth hospital in Woolwich. Parked around the back outside the Mortuary!
