    well, a bit of shit on it - some real Suffolk "mud" and some bug innards
    A little bit of fettling - bars moved , suspension preload / sag altered
    But most will have to wait till next weekend

    But I think it will need cushions

    Interestingly, this hasn't been stored on an optimate - and started absolutely fine. After several months. Allegedly
    Lets see - optimate isn't an issue B

    I just threw in a random "B" there - I have no idea why. Maybe we could get the kids to use "b" instead if "like"
