    replied to Wakefield Park under threat again?
    Appears the Planning Dept has recommended a DA knock back to council, which will be further discussed at an extraordinary meeting at Chambers on the 22nd. There's a change.org petition out there, which seems to time out for me at present - this should...

    Know next to nothing about modern BMs, from a random squizz, and if accurate, interesting to see they appear to have used steel rather than iron! http://blogs.youwheel.com/2015/06/12...linder-engine/. I have heard of nikasil...

    Popped up the other day, molds actually have a complete body inside infested with wasp nests and spiders. Not quite sure how it assembled, there's a nose, tail and side panels which wrap over the top, so nothing on wheelbase, track appears to be around...

    Tyranny of distance! Have an unused set of AVOs, around the 10 1/2 and 11 inch length from memory, with hats and seats to use 2 1/4" springs, which I would have let go cheap too!
