Braved the grinderfest on the jappa...baglady is still sad in the shed. Not for long after being rocketed into buildy mode by some of the fantastic creations at Shed 5.
Well done to Irish John it is amazing, he has some nice bikes to.
I'm not really one to do a favorites thing..but the "arleleater" by Jody is friggin awesome...have no idea why it appeals so much as wheelies at 140mph on a chopper dont make sence...900cc inlinefour, possibly with origanal rear suspension, big raked springer huge front wheel all tied together in a fk off alloy frame...it screams madness...and origanality.Takes my vote..






Many more fabulous bikes...Shauns is imaculate......weird pommy type survival bike in the form of an oldguzzi with jerry cans for fuel tank..it nearly has bags, but not....more tanks.. Alot of work in it...has ignitors in the end of its huge exhaust pipes...Hmmmm???
Subaru batman bike is insane....brilliant engineering......

Camera died....will go back tomorrow..and try again...

Thursday is another night for us so everyone should come along and bring whoever you like. I only had quick visits over the last coouple of days but I have to say that the scooters lat night were cool. Everyone was flying in and out of teh cafe and round teh car park. Tonight I should be there all night. Might take a few trips down the road to Sale Street for a cheaper beer Shocked

Bit pissed off with the over priced beer and not being able to promote grease monkeys so plan is to meet up for a beer in Sale Street bar on Saturday lunchtime. Having said that it's been great so far. Good night tonight hanging out with everybody. Laid back with no attitudes. Excellent meeting Jody's mate apologizing that he smelt of petrol and then seeing the video they had just made with Joe Roccothoko (spelling) where something blows up and they are all running about on fire. Priceless. Everybody planning next year. Looking like sorting a sponsor and doing a one dayer with bands and trade stands and cheap beer and Jody blowing things up with hism stunt show. Our people are fucking excellent.

Crowd favorites so far; Lance's Ironhead, Matts's Saint, the Armageddon Guzzi and the pink Bantam. I'm thinking of trying to buy Dave Agent's Puch (excellent name). Dave. If your around tomorrow, come and say hello. Firing up the drag bikes and drag cars tomorrow night.

Great show Jon. Good to catch up last weekend. Looks like Shed5 filled up during the week with the classics and things. Hope to get back up for saturday. Finished pipes for the shovel. So heres hoping for no rain & ride up for the finish. Top marks for the show. Looking forward to the next.

Glad to see some SRs in there. The bikes are of higher quality than I expected. I couldn't make it, I was in the US and just got back.

I've got some clutch and throttle adjustments to make on my ride, but with 10 miles up and down the rode, it's looking good. Top speed about 120mph, not bad for a home-made 400.

If I get my head out of my ass I post some more pics.
