As you all know already, nothing is new and this blog is no exception. It's full of pictures of cars and bikes, mostly stolen from somewhere or other and the odd bit of useful & not so useful information for your enjoyment.

project update- seat post

well it started like this, blocking the frame up and marking the cut area
cut made
new seat post with a sleeve for strength
new post test fitted, all good at this point
new post then trimmed to fit
nice amount of clearence
then it all goes wrong, i spot the faint line of a liner in the seat post casting, and decide the if i can get it out and run the seat post through the casting it will be a lot stronger than just welding underneath. unfortunately this means remaking the seat post and cut out.
another seat post made and liner now removed, i knocked the new seat post through the casting, only to find it would not line up with the old part of the seat post

after a lot of swearing i finally managed to get the to together, just needs welding now.
