One mans workshop

At the weekend when picking up the cub I had a spoach around the sellers workshop. He had a nicely organized garage set up with areas for working on different projects: another Tiger Cub, a Bultaco. There was even a flat track 650 hiding under a tarp. Shelves were lined with boxed and sorted spares, the rafters were draped in exhaust pipes and a daylit window offered good light.

Back in town another ‘collectors’ trove was introduced to us. This time the hoarding was more in evidence. Numerous British bikes, mostly BSA’s but a couple of Ariel’s in the corner, were lined up in grand sequence: a 40’s military M20, an A10, A65, B40. On his worktop stood a mostly complete 350 Beeza; free’d cylinders, new fluids, and it’ll be a runner in original patina. Smashing!
