Moto Guzzi Cafe Racer...............

.............nearly finished and ready for road testing. Couldn't resist putting the bodywork on though to see how it's going to look. I've ordered some clip ons with a 1" rise as the levers on the current ones are too close to the fairing.

The Bike Shed Event 2017

I went with Nick on Saturday and had a steady slog down the M4 to London in the greyness that is a Bank Holiday weekend in the UK. We got a little wet though not quite as much as I was expecting making good time to Heston - Bloomin' eck - 'how much' services. Still another 45mins + to the Tobacco Dock.
   Another great display with more bikes than previous years with just a little concern that a lot of them are becoming show pieces rather than something that your likely to see on the open road. Still incredible attention to detail, fantastic finish and amazing to look at though!
    Here's a few pics to be going on, with more to post in the coming days  / week.





Not my sort of thing, but clever paint to match the seat



I dread to think how much some of the paint jobs cost!



The one behind is a tribute to Burt Monroe



Nick's lovely Special.




Good old Burt,but not the genuine thing

Who cares about practicality.
I could live with this in my Barn conversion hallway.........
just got to win next weeks lottery for either first!


Not sure if it's built for a specific purpose or just because....
.......they could?
It could be next to the other one in the hallway though!

Stopped for a pint at the lovely Trout Inn at Lechlade on Thames

across country route home.
