Thats good news. I too hate to see these lovely vehicles ending their days prematurely in the scrapyard. Such reliable workhorses.

Most amazing plane i've ever seem was a stealth bomber. A few years back ,in the late 90's the Americans flew one over from the states for the Mildenhall airshow. This plane took off from somewhere in Virginia did one pass over Mildenhall in Suffolk, turned round above the town i lived at the time, ...

Whatever your personal preference for annual sill-patching might be Slowbob, if you wanted a Niva for serious competitive off-roading, it would cost you an insane amount to kit it out like this one. The tyres and rollcage alone (both in pristine condition) would set you back more than a grand. I ad...

The trouble when things become rare is that the owners know this and price them accordingly. Not many bargains nowadays. Ladas excluded of course.

The problem is its quite a rare motorbike and they are becoming like rocking horse poo so there aren't many knocking about and even less on ebay. I think it will only search for items that are still part of an active bid. It would be a good feature for that site if it were possible to do a search fo...

Ebay related question.

I'm looking to buy something from ebay and i'm doing a bit of detective work on the item. The chap says he bought it about six months ago (maybe on ebay). The thing is, i feel its over priced, he has given me a valuation but i notice that he tried to sell it previously back in May. I'm wondering if ...

My last comment on this matter is this. As with all doping, it stretches much further than an individual rider. The whole team set up is to blame and that includes team managers, physios, nutritionist and most importantly (maybe) team doctors. Ultimately its the rider who commits the offence and the...

Neil, I am in no way making excuses for people who cheat and to be honest I find your comment rather offensive. There were 189 riders who started the tour, 2 were found to be cheating and were rightly kicked out. That leaves the vast majority who ride clean. Now one person cheating is one too many b...

One thing i will say in the defence of a sport i love is that at least the governing body is doing something to get rid of the drug cheats. I do also think that the organisers of these grand tour events need to seriously think about making the races either shorter, or at least less hard. As someone ...
