    What a brilliant idea Tiglet. I could be @Winglad's personal trainer. He could do with loosing a few lbs to achieve physical perfection like myself :blush:

    That’s because of his love of schnitzels topped with a slab of goats cheese :eek::)

    Never wore one so wouldn’t know. But as long as you felt liberated that’s good

    Ok Lads,

    The game's up. Unlike Mr Dilligaf I know when to quit. Plus at some point next year I'll be sleeping in the same building as some of you guys. I know what savages you can be! o_O

    Here's my newly acquired "Old Triumph" What a beauty eh ;) ....

    One elderly owner from new. Hardly ever ridden & sadly the old fella has passed away. Apparently he was a biker as well & loved his old Triumph motorcycles
    His son only lives approx 1 mile from me.
    I told him about the little wind-up I had planned for you lot.
    When it came to talking about a price? He said his dad had an awesome sense of humour & would find this very amusing. Hence he said I could have the bike for £20 :grinning:

    It needs a mild clean/lube & a new bulb in the rear dynamo light. Other than that it appears to be fine?
    It even came with a pair of these :p....
