Now painted in a custom made tangerine based on Ford’s Octane paint colour. Also fitted a knock-off version of a Memphis Shades batwing fairing and fitted a radio/mp3 player in it and moulded the speakers in and 3D printed a mount for the radio/mp3 player 😉
Saint David’s Day
As Saint David’s Day approaches, it’s a time for Welsh people around the world to celebrate their heritage and culture. Being Welsh is something that fills many people with pride, and for good reason – Wales has a rich history, a vibrant language, and a unique identity that sets it apart from the rest of the UK.
One of the things that makes being Welsh so special is the sense of community and togetherness that is so deeply ingrained in Welsh culture. From the Eisteddfod to the rugby, there are countless opportunities to come together and celebrate what it means to be Welsh. Whether it’s singing in a choir or cheering on the national team or in particular ‘Cardiff City FC’, there’s a sense of belonging and camaraderie that is hard to find elsewhere.
Of course, there’s also the beauty of the Welsh countryside to enjoy. From the rugged peaks of Snowdonia to the rolling hills of the Brecon Beacons, Wales is a country of stunning landscapes and breathtaking scenery.
But it’s not just the physical beauty of Wales that makes it such a wonderful place to be – it’s the people, too. Welsh people are known for their warmth and hospitality, their love of music and storytelling, and their deep sense of tradition and history. Whether you’re from a small village or a big city, there’s a sense of pride in being Welsh that brings people together and creates a strong sense of community.
So on Saint David’s Day, let us celebrate the happiness of being Welsh. Let us celebrate the sense of community and togetherness that comes with being part of such a unique and vibrant culture. And let us remember the beauty of the Welsh countryside, the warmth of the Welsh people, and the richness of Welsh history and tradition. Whether you’re in Wales or abroad, take a moment to reflect on what it means to be Welsh – and to feel proud of who you are and where you come from. Dydd Gŵyl Dewi Sant hapus i bawb! (Happy Saint David’s Day to all!)
Labor/Green/Teal are Reamin’ Oz
This budget just gets sillier and sillier – that’ll teach the tossers for voting Labor/Greans/Teals. You seriously didn’t think ‘Each way Albo’ and the Labor/Green/Teal coalition was going to be a God send did you? If you did, you’ll be waiting a while for the mental health support you’ll need as there’s bugger all for that or any real health support!
Seaweed producers will receive a sizeable cash injection as the government invests $8.1 million over three years in the low-emissions livestock feed.
The funding will help establish a national hatchery network and support scientific research.
Fishermen and seafood workers will receive extra support through a $1.5 million mental health program named ‘Stay Afloat’.
The initiative, run by Seafood Industry Australia, will set up 50 wellbeing hubs in fishing communities across the country.
Australians experiencing homelessness will receive free haircuts after Labor pledged $400,000 over two years to Short Back and Sidewalks. The charity will provide thousands of haircuts to people sleeping rough.
Beef Australia 2024, Casino Beef Week, the second Dairy Symposium, LambEx, and other agricultural events will get $12.4 million over three years.
WORLD EXPO FANS
Taxpayers will shell out $100 million over four years so Australia can participate in the 2025 World Expo in Osaka.
Morally upstanding Australian sneakerheads rejoice. The government will spend $6.1 million over four years encouraging consumers to buy ethically sourced Australian clothes and footwear.
Climate action has a $30 billion price tag in Australia’s first carbon budget as the nation faces more frequent and severe natural disasters – and electricity prices are predicted to rise by 56% in just over a year.
The 2022/23 federal budget analysis warns the physical impact of climate change can reduce economic activity, erode the tax take, and put upward pressure on government spending.
The budget, released on Tuesday, builds on the Labor government’s climate laws, which brought in a tougher 2030 emissions reduction target to put Australia on a trajectory for net zero by 2050.
Some $20 billion to rewire the nation for renewable energy takes the lion’s share, along with $630 million for a new disaster ready fund. Some $1.9 billion for a powering the regions fund, $275 million for driving the use of electric cars, and $224 million for community batteries to support household solar are also on the climate books.
Contentious carbon capture and storage technologies get $135 million, and support for energy security and reliability $137 million. Re-establishing international climate leadership will cost $296 million. This includes $200 million in additional development assistance for Indonesia through a climate and infrastructure partnership, and $50 million to finance Pacific infrastructure.
Building the federal government’s ‘climate capability’ has been assigned $194 million, with $102 million to restore the Climate Change Authority and $64 million to rebuild Treasury’s climate modelling capability.
We’re on our way – WALES!!
New Toys (Damn I Spoil Myself).
Been a While or a Bloody LONG Time – take your pick!
Decided to sell the matching numbers Tiger or Daytona or whatever the hell you want to call it, I call it the T100SR. The bike is as rare as rockin’ horse shit, feel free to Google search 1966 Triumph T100SR and see for yourself, there’s a few around but are mostly in bits and missing a lot and or not matching mumbers or need a lot of money spent on them to bring them up to the same specs as this one.
This one has had a rebuilt motor (sludge trap done) with new clutch hub (easier than trying to dismantle the hub to get the cush rubbers out), new wiring harness, 6V coils, Wassell electronic ignition, repainted with eye matched paint from the rear guard under the seat which is hidden from the weather, head pipes replaced, new rear shocks and front gaiters, replaced seat cover, white grips – the only year to come out with them, yada yada.
When it was done Dunlop K70’s weren’t available so I went with Metzeler Klassik’s but I’ve ordered a set of K70’s now so they should be fitted soon so if any one wants a pair of Metzeler’s with 4 miles on ’em lemme know. The clocks are Emgo’s because when I got the bike the speedo glass was cracked and the tacho didn’t work, which turned out to be the thimble hence the engine rebuild – I still have the original’s. Essentially it has been sympathetically restored, not a nut and bolt jobby, I wanted it to retain some patina to give it the appearance of a well maintained garage find.

More Work On The Enfield
Got the seat back, exhaust is mocked up just need to tack it then pull it back off and weld it – oh and make tidier hangers.
Decided to get stuck in to the Interceptor, the seat is away at the upholsterers being re-shaped and covered in black with a grey top, while I’m waiting for that I thought I might as well hack in to the exhaust so I bought some Hinkley Triumph T100 mufflers for 200 bux – grab the angle grinder and rock n roll!!
