Yup, Issue 199 is a corker and I am reliably informed that Issue 200 will be rather special.

It's special because it is number 200. I remember when 100% Biker started out and folks were taking bets on how long it would last. I reckon nobody expected it to last beyond the first year, never mind 200 issues. 100% Biker has outlasted many other publications and earned it's place in the Biking community. Long may it continue.

Cheers Mick. I've always figured there's room for everything, it's all about balance. Bit like life, she said philosophically... But it's heartening to see how many builds we feature are ones that people have done in their sheds. And even more heartening that in the last year in particular, some of those have been first time builds. To paraphrase Mr Ian Dury, there ain't half some clever bastards out there...

I've been looking at new sheds - the one I bought years ago secondhand to start a pottery in got used for building a bike, then I was busy riding the bike so it got filled with rubbish, then it started to rot..........

So now I need a shed to start a pottery in.... oh look, I seem to have been here before.....

Default the biz.

well , issue 200 was certainly the biz, top marks. (yes im creeping again). i liked the article , who we are, great. not bin to far afield in the rally scene out side of the westcountry so its good to put names to faces. the gadabout feature was great too, different i grant you , but i have a rat scooter for work so i loved it, . as for shed builds , i remember building my 750/4 chop in my 8by 6 shed, walking on bits for weeks i was, but it ran like a dream, god knows how. memories eh.
