Had some time in the garage today. Rearranged the bikes so I can get to the 1928 Ariel and make some progress.

Swapped out the kickstart-less Burman Q box with the one I rebuilt (with a kick start):-

This is the old one (no kickstart). Got to take the clutch off this for the other box.:-

The 1928 Ariel ohv engine is back on the bench and I'm going to try to get it finished this time:-

A couple of pics for Beales - some of the fleet:-

The old 1954 Velo I had off Den. Must of had it 15 years now. Done a fair few miles on this old un:-

And the 38 Ariel Red Hunter 500 I got off Welch. I've been using this for a fair long while too. Complete with temporary Stealth tank (BBQ paint works a treat):-

Project `Fast As A Shark'

My return to swimming continues unabated - loads of lengths at the Link Centre today with no coffin dodgers to Managed to do some proper front crawl breathing as well.
