 I agree with this. Its nice to see everyone's bikes, Bantams and non Bantams. Its not like we will get expelled for liking other stuff is it? If we did, I would have been expelled ages ago........  

Funny how my non bantam bikes get booted off. I remember when i did something about the Enfield it got removed lol

So I'm not the only one to have things removed. That's a pleasant discovery 🙂

But lets not be too critical of the Web Manager ......

I arrived back from my trip to Scotland to collect the bike last evening, and I have to say I was delighted with the amount of history that came with it.

There is a full set of documents that show that the owner in 2003 sent it away to be restored, and I have all the detailed lists of work done on it, and bills for the work, over the next two years.

There are detailed records of 207.25 manhours of work ... and £1277.93 on parts, including £150+vat to have it delivered, and £30.80 for two MOT's so they could road test it during restoration !!! Total cosy including VAT ... £7396.68p.

It was returned to the owner in early summer 2005, and he put another 3 MOTs on it until 2008 ... when it seems he passed away and the bike was 'garaged.'

How many miles did he have an opportunity to put on it after he had it back?   DVLA records show that at MOT it was 9348 miles ... at 2007 it was 9405 ... at 2008 it was 9453 ... and now ... 9479.

That makes 06-07 = 57 miles. 07-08 = 48 miles. 08 to present = 26 miles. Total ... 131 miles.

I think I owe Mr. Stan Kellock of West Kilbride a duty of respect to add to that total in his memory.
