    Hi everyone, I somehow found my over here from Reeky (rec.motorcycles).
    I have 2 Soviet Dneprs with sidecars that look like something out of
    WW2: a running MT-11 and an MT-10/36 that's more of a project bike.

    I've also got a Hinckley Bonneville -- sort of, in pieces.
    For the purposes of this forum I don't suppose it counts as a true
    classic, but everyone who sees it thinks it's a classic Triumph.
    Just today some guy showed up out of nowhere as I was loading it
    on a trailer and talked about it with me for an hour.

    ps. Maybe I can get a favourable reference from TOG. He knows me
    from Reeky.

    Regards, Sean Patrick Quinlan

    Thus spake Tim () unto the assembled multitudes:
    Doing an awful lot of that in the Lewes (East Sussex) area at the moment. Road
    works causing huge tailbacks on the A27 and queues on the surrounding roads.
    That's when a bike comes in *really* handy.
