days that used to be......

so, after being bombarded with 'mails about the sporty, mostly by total fucking idiots, offering to buy it off me for three-pence ha'penny, [tell you what brotherman, i'm that desperate to get rid of it, i'll pay you to take it off my hand's, in fact, give me your address and i'll deliver it for free, pay for a new paint job and stick twelve months tax on it too, emulsion your front room, do your garden, feed the dogs, re-tile your bathroom, tax your car, put a load of washing in, lag your roofspace pay for your next holiday and i'll throw in my car too seeing as you are doing me such a fucking favour, thank you, thank you, no, thank you from the bottom of my heart ], seriously, it was a result to receive a couple of messages from genuine people, [you know who you are, thank you] who actually appreciated the time, coin, effort, hardwork and love put into this bike, after all my ranting and raving, the sporty has a new owner, [and it's a bloke who i know and is a regular at our local bike-night too] so, i made a two hundred mile round-trip to look at my new bike, money burning a hole in my pocket, a mid seventies, meriden, triumph bonneville, and.... it's a crock of shit, they say the camera never lies, well it fucking does, i'm seething, what a fucking pile of dog do-do's, it's a fifteen hundred quid, total re-build project at best, i resist the urge to spark out the time waster and head off to maccee-dee's for a java, 'mate, mate, mate, i'm open to offer's'.... 'yeah, well i've got an offer for you, shut the fuck up if you want to kep those teeth you c....' refreshed and me and dangerous head down to sheffield to check out a ducati superlight that he's been lusting after, ducati, yamaha and suzuki main dealer, same again, great photo's, reality? total wank, be honest people, saves a lot of time and heartache, another pile of shite, 'patina' doesn't mean total neglect, rust or worn out, patina is genuine............

  1. Ah well its time for the Volvo, cardigan and slippers then young Tim! Fucking hate people lying about .... well anything to be honest. I am always over-critical of anything I'm bunging up for sale. Might not end up with top dollar but always get a happy buyer.

    Get yerself a MZ Trophy to play with while you are waiting for the next big thing, It's that of the Volvo.......

  3. Ranting is still one of your finest assets Lovey, oh yeah !!! Stoked you flicked it to a good home, as for the T140, never mind mate, I'm sure you'll be able to jag a '75 or earlier in good, as described shape, for fair money, just a little less prone to gearbox gremlins with the shifter on the correct side . . . you should have to on a register to even use the word 'patina', fucking idiots !!!

  5. volvo? now you mention it, ermm, got me thinking there, cardigan?, well. none of us are getting any younger and it's important to keep warm, slippers? they are comfy, love a trophy, still got to go and pick up the ts four speed that i bought for the princely sum of one hundred english pounds way back in?, ermm, well, let me think, just like to say happy new year everybody from me and, er, now, whats-her-name and best wishes for 1981, chris, send me your sister, i would be happy to oblige! mr williams, just tell me, where does all this anger come from? do i need to get some sort of help? reading back my post scares me! ed, the bikes were worth fifteen hundred pounds, thats it, total restoration projects, i know they will go up eventually but seriously, this well known 'dealer' should be done under the trades description act, a waste of an afternoon, two hundred mile drive and a tank of fuel spunked for nothing, you hit the nail on the head, 'shit-heaps'......

  7. grant, ey up youth, yep, 'the son of god' has gone, what now? i don't think he was the man for the job, but, i really wanted him to succeed, i see a few years of drama coming up, the board have to stick a few quid in if we are going to be trying for a play off place, i'd like warnock myself, pulis? long ball, but boring, paolo? yeah! bit of a wildcard but would give it his all and stick some passion back into the club, something thats been sadly lacking under 'young nige's' tenureship 'me think's?
