N/W Roadrunner Project No.3

Chris Rimmer’s unusual but beautiful project I’ve always wanted a flat-tanker but never been able to afford one. The other year I saw one of those new Black Douglas Sterling flatties and realised I couldn’t afford one of those either! This led me to the only conclusion. I had to build one myself. Luckily I had a donor bike which could only ever be improved, no matter what I did, in the form of a Chinese AJS js125e. My son Harry had moved on to cars and gave me his…

Junction bike show 16th June 2019 & autojumble

We would like to thank Paul Draper landlord of the Junction Pub in Rainford for once again allowing us to have a bike show in his very large marquee.  The event was well attended but not quite as many as in January, this was probably due to it being father’s day and the unpredictable weather. However, the weather wasn’t too bad and we had riders in and out all day. There was a great variety of bikes on display and our thanks go to all those who attended, as without…

We had a diverse selection of bikes ,each a delight to see . Girder forked machines,…
