BSA Garage in Mereworth

On the way back from the Rye Show I went back up the motorway to put Othello Bike No.5 through its paces and its going very well cruising most comfortably at 80mph with plenty spare for overtaking.  As I didn't take any pictures of it at the show, I thought I would stop at this old BSA garage in Mereworth for some shots - here is one that I adjusted to give a period feel.

Rye Classic Bike Show and Auto-jumble

One of the the great things about 1066 HOG is they have rideouts every week and so if you are free on a Sunday there is always somewhere to go.  Today we had about 20 bikes on a ride from our usual start at the Blackdown services in Maresfield (Sussex) , and then a leisurely 60 mile ride along the coast past Eastbourne, Bexhill, Hastings, Rye and then on to HamStreet where the show was  - about 60 miles in all.  As ever I take my camera for eclectic shots of old stuff that I like - the older I get the older I want my bikes to be.

Caesar Racer (Bike No. 6) - Paint Back

One of the most exciting things about building bikes is when you get your paint back from the painter - I have tried to get far less prescriptive on my designs and leave it up to the painter to interpret it for me.  The last 3 bikes (including this one) have all been done by Image Design in Camberley Surrey, and I have been delighted - and this time was no exception.
My brief - keep it simple - colour palette, white orange and black, "Et, tu Brute?" on the tank and VI on the tail, and make it racy.

Have a look and tell me what you think.
