Oh it's rather a spiffing Shed Brian, purpose built with brick in his garden and full of wonderous machines of which I know nothing


I took some photos last time I was there getting some work done.This is part of it.[B/]







This is a shot of work being done on the handlebars for my Guzzi single seat project.[B/]

What's the bike on the poster? RC30? Since there's only one picture up I'm wondering if that's the ultimate inspiration?

It is indeed an RC30, still owned by my friend who raced it for several seasons at the TT and other top class events with a best result of 3rd in the open class at the Southern 100. Not that you would ever know it by talking to him. The bike is Steve Henshaws old machine.

I'm not surprised. Looking at your work I can quite imagine the appeal of such a perfectly built bike of its time. I had the (much) cheaper NC30 and it was a lovely little thing. I've lusted over the RC since they were new, knowing that even if I could afford one I would never be good enough to justify it!

Trevor9 is now barred out for being cheeky. Especially as he had the neck to visit today for a job on his Guzzi
