When we sold the house and bought our new place, I "Promised" that I would only have my Harley plus one other bike as a project. That was just over a year ago. I now have my Harley and eight other bikes "As projects" of course!

The barn/workshop (Which is bigger than the cottage) has been finished before I even have the roof finished on the cottage. :D:D:D

Mrs Chopper did have the nerve to point out that I have my priorities slightly mixed up. What a cheek. I didn't speak to her till lunchtime.


Chopper :D

Stopped counting at 14 bikes, technically it's 5 bikes and a lot of spares. Breakers charge so much I prefer to buy a project, and have a good stock of parts. Now I just need the kids to get old enough to join me out in the shed and join in instead of chucking bolts into the weeds or eating them. Something that is just starting to happen, the eldest whos 3 and a bit was very interested in helping change a tyre on my trailer the other day, and can already climb onto the tank of my ntv rat bike and put the keys in and start it up and operate the throttle.

well chopper, i have the shed, the loft , and thats it. the house is decorated by the old lady, the gardens are her domain, you wouldnt even know that a male lives in the house, (me). my missus can restore furniture in the dining room, totally rearrange furniture at her leisure, without asking me, while i cant even come into the house with smelly petrol hands , risk a bollocking, no, shes a diamond. she even gives me money to spend sometimes! henpecked, no, a creep, yes..........
