    I knew you were intelligent enough to know those good shows Some people won't be that educated though



    Hot Rod Garage today. That van. That sound. Also Roadkill. I love the Rotsun!

    Yes mate. That and about 20 bikes

    Edit: Ok so an iPhone emoji causes everything you type after to be deleted. Awesome.

    Few things coming up with the 'rolla. I'll make a few videos on it and what not. Really want to test her out on track though.

    Only four that really work   The '46 really just needs new tyres, chain and cables and the Scorpio isn't far off being put back together.  I'm about ready to reassemble a "Kerrys" ladies bike that I'm building from frame up.  But to answer your question... about 20 in various forms

    Time for an update and well... an increase in the number of bikes I own...
     
    1953 Claud Butler - Restoration project - Seized and very rusty



    1935ish France Sport - My granddads bike that I was given and restored













    1947 Raleigh Superb Sports Tourist - All original - Another restoration project



    1970s Raleigh Scorpio - Currently stripped and being cleaned in Oxalic acid which is removing all the rust



    1954 Raleigh Trent Sports - All original - Replaced the tyres and tubes and ride it every week







    That's on top of my Holdsworth road bike, Fixed Gear and Hardtail. And about another 10 bikes in various stages of restoration or waiting on a build.

    For £400 id definitely buy second hand. You'll get loads more value for more.


    Out of all the bikes I've got, my mountain bike, I hate riding that on road. I have lock out on my shocks which makes it a tonne easier but the tyres create so much drag. Some road surfaces are fine, others.... A right pain in the ass. I use 2.1" wide tyres too.

    When you say off roading... How extreme are you going? If you are sticking to those choices maybe go second hand MTB with lockout on shocks and then buy a spare set of wheels. One for road, skinnier with a lower profile and then another set for off road.

    I may have missed what console you're on somewhere... PS3?  Could squad up with me and a couple of others if so.  Battlefield that is.

    I know man, I know. :/
     
    I want to redo things on the mountain bike front.  The only things original on the Carerra is the frame and front wheel but I want more travel in the shocks, and to go full suspension so.... that's one thing to save for.

    Just cruising on it I think! Rust is staying. It's too deep in the chrome/ steel. All bearings replaced and greased, all mechanisms greased, folds fine. Brakes replaced. Cables replaced. Tyres replaced etc. Looks like it shouldn't work but it does
