I'm in the process of buying the MK1 on the sale board, being picked up on Monday  :celebrate:

Currently polishing the garage floor and installing mood lighting in anticipation  :008:

I did. It took a few days to arrive in bank for some reason known only to the Gnomes of Zurich, but it got there.  :002:

 "installing mood lighting in anticipation  "

 You won't need them. Mk1s are always cheerful.

  :celebrate: :152: :007: :031: :028: :biker1: :biker1:

 Some mornings when you go in to say 'good morning' you may be surprised to find it still warm and ticking down or whistling quietly to itself.

 Nothing unusual there. They sometimes take a solo ride out in the early hours, when the roads are empty and the air is sweet.

 The Mk1s are the Magic Bikes and they know it.

Bike collected and delivered to me today and its even better than expected  :37:
Gave it a quick clean and I can say, hand on heart, that there is hardly a mark on the entire bike! well chuffed : :001:
Still haven't ridden it yet - how's that for self control  :goggle: just need to sort out insurance and tax and then I'm off for some essential shopping.  :biker1:

Give the man a break, my Mk1 hasn't been that clean since it rolled off the showroom floor 13 years ago...   :138:
