Re: What did you do today?



Changed the pulley on my mower for top speed and now it really flies! I have loads to be getting on with but spent most of the night fucking about with this instead.

Re: Two wheels good.

I fell off my kdx200 the other week and skinned my arse. I basically wheelied off of a jump and came right off the back of the bike. It still hurts! After that I went out and bought all of the appropriate protection so that it won't hurt as much next time... https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20200728...

Re: My slightly knackered old cars

I got it for £1500 which I thought was pretty good. https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20200709/7cc996f4ffd42cacf50d395eee294016.jpg https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20200709/dc5df46d364ac45682c16b3603256365.jpg ...

Re: My slightly knackered old cars

Spotted this for sale this morning so went along and bought it. It drove fine apart from a very annoying oil pressure warning buzzer sounding randomly for different lengths of time. I didn't have any oil on me so just gave it a quick check on the way home and seen there was definitely oil in there, ...

Re: My slightly knackered old cars

Anyway, a small amount of progress has been made on the Chevette (for those not following the videos). I got all of the welding and painting done on the front end and got the wings and front panel fitted. https://live.staticflickr.com/65535/49867495221_9fcd169182_c.jpg IMG_2919 by srblythe , on Flic...
