Default YAY ebay finally came good :)

so many tales of woe involving ebay that I thought I would just say that Im having loads of luck on there recently and loving it

got a real clean 8k miles GTR1000 engine with carbs and other accessories for 31

and tonight I just got a sierra diff, shafts, hubs and all the calipers, etc etc for 75

so can you tell what its gonna be yet?

LOL

If I had the space I'd amend your custom title to "Lucky Wombling Bastard except when he's not Wombling, when he's just a Lucky Bastard"

It's not so long ago that the Lucky Wombling Bastard was the unluckiest bloke here.

Tony, we fully expect a write up, with pictures, as this new project develops.

LOL yeah but wasnt lucky enough to win the 100% trike conversion comp HUMPH!!! about 300 entries I posted, one of them was enlarged and printed out near on 4 or 5 foot tall, not like they couldnt see it LOL

so time to try and make it myself

just got a couple of small jobs and the budget chops finished, so damned cold and dark out there in the garage that its going to take a while to finish that but in the mean time Im collecting bits

probably start around february

trike will be another budget special, (done the hardtail route and its on the road in Ireland now) so can you really build a smart IRS rear ended trike on next to no money and with limited skills? dunno, but Im gonna sure as hell try
going to push myself harder this time, make the fuel tank and other stuff, it might not turn out as good as it could, but I want to really be able to say that I made it

the inspriation is the budgiestiniis(sp) trike, helenes one, that is one of the finest trike I ever saw, I want to go similar style to that but with IRS back end

stressed member frame all swoopy etc, mainly as I can not ever face having to try and lift that engine ever again, damn near killed me! so its engine on wooden jig layout thing and build frame on top of it LOL

now then where did that big box of M18 rosejoints go, I have a load somewhere, yup from a skip, knew they would come in handy one day
