Looking good. I also like the useful chairs for storing all those motorcycle bits and pieces !

Great work. I can just imagine my "sweet angels" reply if I said I was going to rebuild my bike in the conservatory. A couple of bike mags is about all I'm allowed

Do you number the chairs so you know which order the bits are in?

That's 'cos you wear the skirt Jimmy! :lol:

Bikes coming along SA, all then bits scattered, I mean neatly arranged in order, around the place reminds me of when Mrs. Jessplop was 8 months gone with our eldest and I was building my Bonnie in the front (only) room....
