  1. Thought I'd put since life into this thread Received a box of parts last Wednesday which contained more boxes and parts: Currently sorting the parts and seeing what's damaged/missing. Should hopefully sometime turn into a 1937 Rudge Special.
  2. Besides weird dudes putting up with that shit my question really is: Why is stabbing someone not allowed to hurt your career? I wouldn't really want a surgeon that stabbed someone in the leg and may or may not still be addicted to drugs and alcohol...
  3. Update: There's no update. Last week next week was 'likely' but judging by me not hearing from them yet I suppose it's become unlikely, like the past eight weeks. They've had it for two months now. In a blink of an eye it'll have been sitting there for a quarter of a year. If I'd have used some dodgy dude on shiply it'd probably be here now or properly lost. But I'd know what's up. I'm just sick of the constant postponing. 'it's looking like next week' 'overnext week is likely'. If they can't be arsed making international deliveries they shall not offer them anymore. And everyone keeps giving asking me if it has bloody arrived. And I'm totally not feeling bad because I can't tell the seller if it arrived safely or not. To add to that my mate that is supposed to help me get the thing together will be moving away early September. If anyone has a van and fancies holidays in Switzerland let me know. fin.
  4. That stem looks a tad crazy! An oldschool build does seem very tempting to be honest..
  5. Brilliant! I've finally edited these photos (4x5s exposures) together after having them lying on my drive for 10 months... I'm never that keen on editing photos sadly. Lightnings Over The Rotonda by Geoffrey's Creations, on Flickr
  6. I'm sure there'll be enough people throwing in a few quid to keep it running for you.
  7. The catch on the wall was really good. My arcade would've pulled me down.
  8. What now?
  9. Afaik you can get decent results with Spaz Stix Mirror chrome. People use it for lexan RC car bodies and scale modelling. But it'll never look like real chrome. How hard is it to get a good result? No clue How long will it hold? No clue.
  10. Bought a motorcycle in parts. Seller shipped in the UK for free. I had two companies to select from to bring it over here, one removal company that does England - Switzerland once a week and a motorcycle transportation service. I went for the latter because I trust them to get the customs documents right and all that. I also told them to "bundle" my pallet/box of parts together with something different for the region, to save on costs. Looks like no one else wants anything currently. I mean, it gives me time to concentrate on my exams in a month, but I'm still a bit fed up with waiting to be honest. Curiously I don't feel like I made the wrong choice. Annoying.
  11. I've got an old mountain bike, bought in 2009 I think (only yesterday did I realise that it's been so long!), which has not been in use around 5 years due to the alu frame feeling like it wants to disintegrate. I'm kinda looking to have a mountain bike again, frame only, my head is kinda saying yes but my wallet is desperately trying to say no. I'm trying to figure out what parts I can use off the old bike to sort of make a budget. - Years ago my brakes stopped working, Shimano XT '08, my mate thought they had a bit of a reputation to start leaking so I thought it's them, tried to fix them a few times without much success. - Three years ago I put the Magura Louise I had on my fourplay onto the front of the mtb and that worked well - for one day. Next day I pulled the lever and nothing happened, no air in the system and bite point and the pressure are there, but all I got was screeching. New pads and well cleaned disk. Also with the XTs the front was affected more than the rear, but I know that the rear is slightly shagged anyways as it started pulling air. So I've been wondering if my fork is pissing over my front brake? It doesn't look like it, but something is messing up my brakes. The fork is a Fox Talas 32 RLC. Found a servicing guide online but never done it before, don't necessarily want to do that right now as they seem to work. I've got one more pair of brakes I can try, just to see if they'll also stop working, other than that I'm out of ideas. Has anyone got any different suggestions?
  12. My neighbours would not be tolerating that at all
  13. Don't think there's anything you're missing. My mate took a file to it.
  14. No. I rarely do. As I said, something told me. That has nothing at all to do with thinking.
