So this is where you're playing now. Awesome!

The Eel's on Wheels build still isn't finished, but I've been riding it. Took it out the other day and was having so much fun I kept going... and then ran out of gas.

While out I spied a cool looking bob parked up outside a cafe here at Lyall Bay that's being refurbished after a fire. The owner was working inside. Turns out he just lives down the road from me and is a welder (see www.weldinrod.com). He used to work for an outfit down here called Cycle Workx. His names Corey Wyatt. Do you know him Woody? He also makes custom sunglasses which he sells on tradeMe.

His bobber's a sweet old triumph made to look rough as guts, springer front end etc.

Anyway, that's a long and possibly boring story.
Great to see this forum up and running - and so many familiar names.

Go the Wellington crew. cheers
