    I do like the look of those new Fat Bob's. It's all @Winglad's fault! :confused:
    Thankfully I'm waaaaaay too tight to spend £20k on anything that won't make me money! :cool: :p

    I was genuinely interested in the new Rocket 3 at £20k. That was when the rumours were that only 50 would be produced (only 20 of those for the UK market)
    I rang Woburn Triumph on Christmas Eve to pay a deposit.
    Then during my chat with Rich's boss. It transpired the actual number of new R3's being produced will be more like 800.
    Plus that's just the first production run. You can bet your bottom dollar Triumph will produce more.

    I lost interest after hearing that info :confused:

    Nice - used to play "fantasy garage" with my son when he was younger and interested in bikes and cars - before he found girls. We'd have £1 million to spend and would argue for somethings inclusion (before Top Gear's cool wall).

    It's a good job you chose to make your living as a cameraman Crispey.
    Otherwise you'd be living under a bush! :cool: :p

    Went into the Specialist bike shop or whatever its called in Sheffield before Christmas.
    I was just drooling over a mint original V reg. 2000 mile CBR 600 when a guy appeared. It's a real weird layout shop, more like the corner of a multi storey car park with a little barrier to create the area; just weird!
    I comments to the guy, assuming he worked there, that he had a varied selection of clean classics.
    His reply was Oh no this is the scrap yard you want to look in there, pointing to a closed door.
    I stick my head through to be greeted with an hello from down the corridor.
    First five bikes on the left were spanking Ducati's and created an impression especially when you looked at the tags umm.....
    £ 72k was the first..... WHAT! yep £72 000.00
    Next one was a bit cheaper, think it was £53k and so it went on
    LOL, I reckon that first five bikes was a cool 1/4 million plus (sterling for our overseas friends).

    They had quite a variety plus various oddballs, anyone remember the Honda NR 750?

    Blaahhhdy ell, just checked their website. Some seriously good bikes in there, didn’t even know it existed, thanks for that. There’s these guys too http://steelcityclassics.co.uk/product-category/classic-bikes
    if your budget doesn’t stretch to house buying territory, they are upstairs in SMC near to Wicker Arches.

    It’s not in the same league as The specialist but they have some decent stuff, including an X75 Hurricane a while back.

    Specialist had a lovely MV Augusta 800 brutale Hamilton model. Red spoked rear wheel on a single sided swingarm looked gorgeous.
