Here is my panther, still in bits, in the garage, with a nice view of number 8 opposite.

I like that view of No.8 from No.7's garage. The Bedford CA van (work-bus) at the side was mine at one time. I half owned it with Terry T, but then I swapped my lovely, newly rebuilt, Triumph 350 for his half. I must have been mad.
:Mad:
I don't think I ever saw the inside of No.7's garage. I wasn't aware that there were two Panther motorcycles (known as 'slopers') in there. Did either of them ever get renovated?

Was one of them Gary's old bike? He used to have this model in the picture.

Panthers still. So my memories are a bit hazy, one of the twin panthers migh have been gary's because i rememer thinking that it was good to have a saddle so low so as my feet could reach the ground as apposed to other bikes were i would just fall down sideways when i stopped at traffic light, because of the weight.
The other one, well i remember going with gary and a couple more people somewhere in wales, i think, with a car, it took us quite a while and on our way there, we stopped at a little petrol station where they had cream eggs. I'm addicted to the stuff and it happened that they had tons of them and not many custemers, so they were happy to sell me a whole box (could have been two dozens). I've rarely been so sick in all my life, eating them as we were driving along!
On the way back the bike was taking most of the space so it was pretty uncomfortable!
I took mine completely apart, cleaned all the parts, painted some of the metal bits in black and was just about to get the rest copper plated when mac just gave it to someone...
I never actually drove the bloody thing!

My dad filmed hours of boring camping sites, castles and so on and so forth, and a few seconds in GR. I eventually managed to learn how to cut bits out of a video, so here we are:



There's a second bit with me on a pushbike but for some weird reason, i can't post it. I'll try again tomorrow, too tired now!
