10. Small parts made from scratch.

 

 

 

 

 

 

When we had the idea to do this everyone thought it was great. The reality is that we could not agree in what order they should be placed or if we had the images required to make the top ten. It would be fair to say that these are the most common repairs we see and to a certain degree can be complicated  to complete.

It’s time to retire and repair for next year?


bike-repair With the bad weather coming it is time to get all those crack and nicks repaired so your bike is in top condition for the new years season.

I’m reminding you now, it will be to late next year. You’ll be sorry.

 

Motorcycle Monthly magazine.


mcmWhile I am in a generous mood, I’m going to give a little bit of space to promoting motorcycle monthly. It is quite a popular magazine if you know where to pick up a copy. You will not find it on sale in the usual places though – Why? Because it is free. I know, how brilliant is that!

It is full of the things you would expect from a glossy magazine; road tests, shoot outs, latest industry news etc. and advertising from us. He! He! I may as well get a plug in for us! All of which is printed on news print, giving it a daily paper feel.

The other great thing is, if you cannot find your copy locally you can subscribe to it for the breath taking some of £9.99 a year! Wow! The cost is mainly to cover the cost of postage. If you are interested you will find all the details at www.classicmagazines.co.uk

mcm2The June edition has a great article on model replicas – bikes that are one to one scale of the original. A 1960s classic Harley Davidson is the first in the series. Guess what? just like with real bikes, if you break it we can repair it!!
