  2. Hi everyone!

    Chr1st £100, that's not much dearer than a decent Eclipse vice. I can't remember what they had at school but in the apprentice training centre where i worked we had Colchester Students and Mascots. One of the best manual M/Cs I've been on is a Jones and Shipman surface grinder with a magnetic base and theyre tiny too. It's that accurate i'm sure you could count the sparks.
  3. Hi everyone!

    I was sure you were going to say a Myford. A thou of backlash is impressive, ive worked on M/C's with 8 full turns of the handle before its out.
  4. Any bikers ?

    I didnt like alloy wheels when they first came out in the late 70's but by 78 I'd jacked in with bikes anyway. Do you remember the commando chopper, thing with hi bars....... Uggggghhhhhh, how could they do that to such a beautiful bike?
  5. Any bikers ?

    How late is the Bonnie?? I think the latest ive been on is about 75/76. Were Italian electrics like Jap chains and tyres?
  6. Hi everyone!

    Welcome what sort of lathe have you got?

    I couldn't really see it being used used in the favourite boxing day film, Great Escape, could you

    In '66 England won the world cup and got a bonus of 10 woodbines each. The year after, Scotland beat them 3-2 with 2 goals from slim Jim Baxter and one from Denis Law, European footballer of the year. The English league division one champions were Manchester United who had 3 European footballers of the year in the team, the holy trinity of Law, Best, Charlton which wont happen again

    I think smoking and drinking is still par for the course in cricket

    Corona pop in the 60's has never been beaten. The smell of tar. E type Jag is still the best looking car ever. John Steed made David Beckham look like Wozel Gummidge's scruffy brother.

    Kids at school were nowhere near as fat as they are now.For one thing we had a lot less to eat in the 60's. Kids nowadays walk home from school with a pizza in one hand and a bucket of kfmcdonalds crap in the other

    Jim Breaks was great. Les Kellett was supposedly the daddy of those wrestlers, a real tough geezer by all accounts. Steve McQueen, coolest Triumph rider ever, on and off screen
  13. Both ankle Sunday

    Just been out over the fields for a walk with my lad (dog) and didn't see one person with a watch round their ankles.
  14. Both ankle Sunday

    I think Groves got into the ring about a stone heavier than jnr, once he'd rehydrated. We've had some cracking super middles in this country haven't we.
  15. Both ankle Sunday

    I didnt see it either. I thought it would go the distance but wanted jnr to win. He's inherited his fathers chin!!
