That'd be a shame, but understandable.

Possibly not. At the moment we have seven vehicles so the logistics would be a nightmare. It will be a lot easier if I only have to worry about getting the trike and the Bantam there. Thinking of selling everything except the wife's daily, the trike and the Bantam.
I do remember you saying a bigger garage? Sounds like you need some monkeys to help you with the logistics - I volunteer for the trik....

That would be a shame Dave after all the work you put into it but as Andy said understandable

Sorry to hear that mate. Perhaps things will pick up for you after Brexit (god I hate that word).
 Our present house is in a village where folk tend to move within it. Either looking for a larger family home or downsizing. Rare for people to actually leave except in a box.
 Nearly everyone who viewed/made offers were already living in the village.
Place we are going to (unless all goes horribly wrong) is somewhat remote. No house number and the road doesn't officially have a name, Huh but the garage (man cave) does have an inspection pit and a reasonable size room over, so I think I might be able to manage somehow. Grin

Yep.  In the 1841 census it used to be two cottages that housed a family of eight plus two labourers in one of them, a family of four in the other and that was before it was extended. Damn it must have been crowded in there.

So much work gone into that. How do you begin to put a price on it?

Not by the number of hours that's for sure.
Still a lot of work needs doing but I just want it gone. It can go for what I figure I'd get for the wire wheels and the tyres. 500 if anyone is interested. Radiator cap and ignition switch plate not included .

That's probably part of the problem - the never-ending, stopping and starting again bloody roadworks!  I wouldn't buy anything in that area either!

Providing the buyer turns up that has to be the fastest ebay sale ever !
Within 2 minutes of the listing going live it was sold. Possibly a time waster but his feedback score is 100 % so we will have to wait and see.

D'oh! buyer can't collect for a month so has cancelled. Angry

Sold again. Being picked up Sat or Sun.
