PostSubject: Winter Project Time   Tue May 21, 2013 11:34 pm

Been playing with my old Softail. Now its really starting to look old.





Now I can start changing the new Shovel round and getting it ready for the Summer.





I'm also moving the Bambina out so I can bring in my lift table at the weekend so I can actuially get some work done.

It's cause I hardly ever finish anything Doug. I'm trying to change my ways. I actually got out on the Softail for a while yesterday and got the Evo back into the shed and threw the Triumph engine cases into the parts washer so I could start on the rebuild.
Now I just have to teach myself to stay away from the beer fridge Laughing

You want to try my shed... some smart cooky decided to use polypannel... sounds all good till you have to use the shed, can't do any hot work near it (no insurance) and its got this interesting habbit of chilling down overnight and refusing to warm up during the day

Yeasterday I was working in 2 t-shirts, a sweet shirt, bushshirt and a wool lined PVC vest and outside temp got to 22... If the lease wasn't the right price for the space Laughing

Going to have a play at building some solar hot air pumps, see if they really work

Smile you might just have to start a thread on your air pump, seeing as there arent many bikes in the works at the mo.

Laughing Laughing thats what we like to see, a man happy in his work. If, per chance, you should wind up finding more full ones that need to be emptied in a hurry than you can manage, FOR THE LOVE OF GOD, SING OUT. (aye Woody)

I might have a go at that. Nice project.
I was looking through the comments for the video. Some strange people out there; particularly the guy with the ski mask and the kid that likes to stick beer cans up his ass. Shocked I guess everybody has to have a hobbie.

Laughing your more than welcome to come help with the project
Friday nights at the shed can be a very socail affair with random petrol heads.... 4wd'ers, drifters, hotrodders, classic car types all sorts
I think some custom bikers would fit in well Laughing

Laughing just no anal stuff with beer cans Laughing silent thats one hobby that wouldn't fit
