Just got back from our `Frat Cave` gig down at the Standard (see previous poster post ). Still trying to come down off the buzz , though I`m getting tired now . Really couldn`t be happier now we`ve got a settled line up , everyone seems to get it and enjoy doing it . Louis is down at the Brass Monkey tomorrow , his proper band , Admiral Cloudsley Shovell ,are supporting the Wet Nuns , who I suspect will be neither wet nor nuns .

Noodling around on the internet , I came across this article by the inimitable David Edwards... http://hellforleathermagazine.com/2010/12/time-machine-triumph-when-trackmaster-met-tracy/ ...great article , which touches on three of my favourite things ; Triumphs , Flatrackers and Chopper History , got me wondering whether these frames were some of the inspiration for the Motor Shop frames that came later ? Check out this article from 74s Forever and see what you think .... http://74sforever.blogspot.co.uk/2011/08/history-of-motor-shop-frame-bill-york.html

Fifties moped tank with nice shape (somewhere between a Wassel Peanut and a Mustang scooter tank)and cool twin rib down the centre and nice cap .
Tunnel width 2"
Tap is seized but might be usable with some heat and lube , two dinks in the front where it`s been run on a bike with no lockstops . Love those screw on `Leopard ` badges. It`s on evilbay now , but drop me a line if you want to do a deal .

Bates Cobra Seat for sale .
Sticker is only partially intact , but compare to this one.....
....it`s the real deal.
Two small (approx 1")tears in underside where frame rails rubbed in previous application on an A65 (see pic of underside ) , you wouldn`t see these when the seat was mounted.
Otherwise in lovely vintage condition , thick leather with some patina but loads of use left .
More pics to come when I can get it out in the sunshine .
If you`re interested , drop me a line to firstname.lastname@example.org
