Mind your heads.........

............and their first taste of terra firma in very many years.
    They actually arrived today and managed to give them a quick look over and quick tidy up.
   The wiring on the le man actually looks very tidy and connecting a battery of mine up showed that most of the electrics worked.......actually just the brake light didn't.
   They will both, in theory, be up for sale in the near future but just not sure whether just to get them running or also do much in the way of cosmetics. The mk II isn't too bad at all but the Cali has suffered as can be seen. Neither has been ran for at least 15 - 20 years and the owner has more or less left the decisions up to me?
   I'd forgotten but was reminded today that the Cali was actually bought from myself in 2000 and I'd bought it as mostly restored but unassembled bike a year or so before that.

Bristol Bike Show 2019

A couple of weekends ago it was the Bristol Bike Show held in the town centre in the same streets where the 'Italian Day' used to be. Very lucky with the weather as the day before had been a total washout and the think the Sunday was a wet one too. 
 It was actually very well attended and a pleasant enough way to spend a few hours.
