It's my Triumph bobber...no namby pamby electric start for me! It's a late model Bonneville with a 998cc stroker barrel/piston set, forged crank, fuel injectors in false carb bodies,forged wheels, peanut tank, apes, reverse megas and lots more...my son and I built her a couple of years ago over a 6 month period. You should see what he rides! I'll take some pics next time he visits.

Hi FlashWe have Hornby Dublo From 1939+ a large layout , dream of my fathers with some of the locos and rolling stock worth in excess of £1000 each.
My father and his father used to represent the coutry for RC boats and had the first steam powered one in the early 50's. My grandfather was an engineer for GEC after the war, and designed most of the power station cooling towers aroung yorkshire etc. He even pressed the button of when then demolished the old cooling towers at Ferry Bridge power station in the 80's

Wow Dad unfortuneatly is in a wheelchair now as he used to have a false leg but now cant wear it due to ill health, therefore doing RC boats is very hard for him.Funnily enough him and i used to race RC offroad 1/10 buggies at our local club and i even had a chance to race against /with one of the top races at the time in the 80's at York!
