Doin a Legend!!!

Gents

Thought I may share some news with you guys, I’m in Holland at the moment on business. I spent yesterday in London looking round a classic bike show room from which I heard about talking to a guy in a pub in Clarme (Clapham to you inbreds). Anyway, this place has got loads of bikes from 1910 all the way through to about 1990. I found rather a nice Seely 7R AJS which was raced by the late Danny Shimmin and the late Joey Dunlop!!!!! Not sure if I will risk getting on it since my name may be preceded with a “late” as a result.

Anyway currently looking to “import” it to China, got to get round the 150% import tax somehow, friends in HKG may have to help me with that one. I bought it as an investment and going to stick it in my apartment in Shanghai. Not sure how I’m going to get it in the lift. This is a picture of a similar bike.

You might have trouble getting it passed security and in the lift, the bike that is.

YEAH

Great lookin bike BBQ.
Dont pay too much thou...there's a lot around , a real lot.

If yer ever stuck at Birmingham airport ( god forbid) there's the motorcycle museum right next door thats worth a visit. It's five minutes away from the terminal.

You might want to get TUG to source you a 1 foot by 3 foot drip tray...you're gonna need it

Ah

The Legend selective memory kicks in once again.
The only time you passed me ( and anybody else for that matter) was when I was lying motionless in the middle of last turn. If'd i'd known it was the last lap i'd have crawled down the back straight faster than ya!!

Wot d'ya mean hit ya!! I'll let you buy me a beer THEN thump ya
