Looks awesome Irish how does it work when someone wants to use a they pay so much per day and how does it work if people don't have there own tools can they borrow it or hire it
And I agree with Coss only problem it not here in Welly

The way they do it in Oz is to pay an annual subscription and the $10 an hour to hire a lift and all the tools. There are plastic bins to sore all your parts and the bikes can be stored as well.

Looks great.
I had a customer the other day who was asking about whether there was a communal workshop in Auckland so I referred him to you Jon.

Thanks Brett. I'll start to advertise as soon as I can get my electrician to sort out some sockets for the coffee machine and the TIG welder.

I've got to take my son over to the shore first thing Sunday morning but I'll be back in the shop for the rest of the day from about 10:30. If you get there before me give me a shout on the number on the web site www.salt-lake-cycles.com

I took a ride out to the workshop today, having never met IrishJon or Sara before I can honestly say they are 2 of the nicest people you will ever meet.

If you are watching this forum and wondering if you should go and have a look, I suggest you do… drive, ride, taxi or hitchhike, it’s a great place to be, the atmosphere is very laid back an although I never had a coffee, I’m sure that’s great too.

Jon and Sara, it was great to meet you both.

Fund raising BBQ at the shop next Saturday. Some of the guys are going to come in before they head out to Born Too Late on Saturday so if you are around at lunch time you might get to see some very cool custom bikes.

Change of plans. Someone discovered that there will be food trucks at Born Too Late so meeting up at the workshop around 11am for a drink maybe and then out to the show. This is going to be the last BTL so we'd better make the most of it.
