Re: WHAT COLOUR'S YOURS?

Landrover Cotswold Green.
Only because it was in the end of line bin at a discount and I was rebuilding on a tight budget.
The next time it gets rebuilt I'll powdercoat with the correct BS or RAL colour.

Re: They Shall Not Grow Old - film

Watched it at the cinema in Leicester at High Cross.
If you get the chance to see it on the big screen, do so. Probably one of the most thought provoking pieces of work on the Great War I think I have ever watched.

Re: Hello (Stolen)

Sorry to hear this, I had a bike pinched years ago so I can very much sympathise. Mine did eventually get found and returned, thanks to a couple of very sharp eyed bobbies on the beat in Birmingham.

Hopefully yours will come back to you, too.

Re: Found this old video

Ah. The White helmets display team selection course!
I went on this course in the early 1990's (and was to my surprise successful)
It was very much as arduous as it looks but was a great time looking back on it

I've stripped and rebuilt it since buying it and added a couple of bits and bobs to improve things. A flywheel weig...
