Like cheap enough I might buy to sell on cheap and make a grand cheap....
cant the person who has be ar55ed to sell it properly?

he just needs a certain amount of money quick and he has the car handy. But yeah you'd think he'd sell it for more. It's dropped on bilsteins taxed and tested etc. So tempting, but insurance huuuuooooiiiiige!!! And rather just put the money into the beetle now then dick about
good plan... well i hope you do alright out  of it then.... you should post it on here!?

Always had a thing for banded steels ever since i first saw some but slightly worried about buying secondhand ones as you don't really know how well they were done, and that is cheap???

A pantastic day out, even if it was only 2 minutes up the road.




now just need matey to move his hotrod out the way, dig out the beetle, clear the crap and be able to get some decent pictures.

In golf news, changed the discs and pads.

Probably a 1641. Would quite like something really lairy, but I'm going to most likely be running tall and wide crossplys on the back so not sure how they will put the power down.

Good to know you're still posting.. Nice one on the girlfriend front but yeah, trying to have best of both worlds can be hard on the wallet, that's why mine takes so long! 

Your trikes?    Nice!  :cool:
