Caught up with an old friend!


I always wanted to see Wagga Wagga, and the guy that bought the Chair of Despair lives just past there. I called in to see my old girl, and the very nice man Mark who bought her.

He’s done some work since he bought it, and the old girl is looking even better. The shed had a few other stable mates, like an old Triumph, Norton Commando and an Indian too. I’m very happy to see it went to a good home!

I took a couple of spare parts up that I found lurking in the cupboard under the sink. I could have just binned them, but they may be useful to someone down the track. Hopefully this might buy me some good bike karma??

Thanks for lunch, coffee and a chat Mark. I hope you enjoy the outfit as much as I did!

About Sophie Whiptank - aka Bart

I'm just a bloke doing some stuff, the more interesting bits I post on my blog. Scroll down far enough and you'll see me riding from Melbourne Australia to Birmingham, England in 2014. But now I'm working on another project, a single cylinder motorbike engine at 2750cc!
