    Discovered to my cost that owning an MGB Roadster was a rich man’s hobby – something I wasn’t then and am still not!

    Loving how this is progressing.

    Ah, well, Mike, lots of fellas did turn to the "rice-burners", because they didn't leak for a hobby, and they had decent reliable performance. I went from a BSA 650 plunger to a Honda CB450 Black Bomber in 1966.....cracking machine, took my wife and I backwards and forwards to Aberystwyth from Epping several times without a squeak. Great times:D:p.

    Managed to own one Japanese bike , like Alan, a CB450, which was ultra reliable. I had a Benelli 6 for a couple of months - awesome but complicated, and I'd have ended up broke (financially and physically) if I'd kept it. It went, and was replaced with an MGA 1600 Mk 2 roadster (should've kept that!):oops:

    Progress so far on these two "Sawdust Caesars". Almost done, just the zips and fastens to add on the jacket and parka, then a final tidy up and primer(y)

    Yes, excellent. And a good show of what can be done with existing (diecasts) models, to make them into something much more interesting.

    Good show, Steve - like your rendition of the loafers on the Mod, his parka looks excellent & the face looks slightly reminiscent of Phil Daniels in Quadrophenia (it's the hairstyle). Superb (y)

    And the Greaser looks suitably unimpressed.
