"noise up the jocks time"

buckfast, or buckfast tonic wine as its properly known, is made by the monks at buckfast abbey.(england)...perhaps frier tuck might shed some light on the subject????

told it tastes like piss, never tested it out myself, you understand........

Buckfasts or 'Rocket Fuel' as it is known in Glasgow is, indeed, made by monks in England. It seems to be the breakfast of choice for many a Glaswegian and especially the In-laws in Gourock.

There's one in BSH this month (small add's),probably the same one as your looking at?
Anyway,we bumped into one at Leeds Lions do' earlier on this year,probably cos he was camped next to us.Huge,enormous,bigger than life things they are,same as you described,Rover 3 2/1,Jag IRS,but not the same trike.
I spoke at length to the owner who seemed quite suprised i'd never heard of a Buckly trike,aparantly (according to the owner) there's loads of them!!!

Hope you've got a BIG garage.

Cheers Rik.
