new home

I've been getting a bit vexed working in the current shop, it's a small place and the parts side is taking over so I've been left with a tiny place to work on bikes and it's twisting my melon. I've known of this place for a long time and finally the time was right and it's mine. what you see here is the upstairs, it has a few rooms downstairs but the upstairs is beautiful and huge, the best thing about it is that it is set into a hill so there is a side door that leads straight upstairs so I can wheel bikes straight in upstairs.

I am going to like it here, it is a 17th century mill in a beautiful English village.

messing about

while I'm waiting for my honda frame I decided I really missed the ironhead, they are so much fun, I had a rumage aound in the (very cramped) shop and found some bits that had been hanging around for a while and decided to put another one together, early Paughco frame and a wassell tank. those are 10" overs in the stock rake frame.. it sits pretty well. this bike will probably be for sale after i've put a few miles on it. those are y favourite grips, I've had them for ages and I think this is the bike they will stay on. More pics soon.. maybe
