andy, its sat at home under piles of boxes, 2 mountain bikes, and various other garage related junk.

it does make random appearances down at jamsport, usually at the weekends.

warren is indeed one of the lucky ones.

its not an ornament thats for sure, its more a handy devise to stop my bike from falling over in the garage.

richard, its not finished wit hthe running in, i just havn't had the time or money to spend on it, other things are comming first unfortunatly. the corsa has taken 2 years so far so another 1 isnt a problem

no more parts, its complete, done mot'd ready to go, i have a small issue with the oil tank sealing, and need to fit the roll over valve in the fuel vent. thats it. its mapped to 5.5k, goes well, drives alot better than expected.

problem is when you work all day everyday on other peoples cars, working on your own car isn't fun, its just like doing more work but not getting paid.....
