Cant answer that one but I can tell you the forks are in backwards! Check out the dropouts - they should be in front of the fork blades. It should ride a damn site better with them the right way around and much less twitchy.

This was my biggest impulse buy: 8 yrs ago, bought it before I'd passed my test... or for that moment took a single 'proper' bike lesson: still got it...... not been on the road for a fair while and neither of us are as shiney now ;)

mines has to be my Breitling watch

Already had a 1987 Chronograph, Chronomat, which was nice and worked perfectly fine

Then when and spent £1800 on this beauty, although it is titanium and good for 3km deep diving (which is always handy lol)

A botched Bay Window with a transplanted Ford watercooled engine in it.....impulse bought because I had a camping holiday booked and it was for sale round the corner. 2 years, a lot of money, a lot of fun buying bits/fixing-upping but hardly any camping.....I saw sense, sold it and got the T4. :)

I impulse bought a sausage roll from Sayers.
I instantly regretted not buying a sausage and bean pastie.

Triumphs. I cant resist a sad looking Stag or TR7V8.

I feel as though I have to bring them home and care for them.

Some of these things are mega expensive and maybe if you have money not so bad.

currently if I buy a set of lowering springs which almost happened earlier this morning id have to sell my kidney to keep my direct debits flowing.

However I have bought a sticker for the van on the agreement with myself that I go to the garage today and find something to sell.

Anyone for some 'borrowed' pint glasses of various makes or half a bottle of windscreen wash?
