    Hi folks

    The cold weather has given me a chance to make the new neck rest with integral WP_20171219_11_14_13_Pro.jpg WP_20171219_11_14_30_Pro.jpg reflector and rear lamps assemblies . Awaiting the rear lamps from China .

    WP_20171225_12_07_17_Pro.jpg WP_20171225_12_07_42_Pro.jpg Christmas day ride out to the peace statue only 7 miles but that was enough with low air temperatures and an evil cold wind we were happy to get home and cook our Xmas dinner. Still having a little problem with the hinge but hopefully that will be resolved in the new year. Happy Christmas everyone,
    regards Emma

    Hi Folks
    and l hope the new year has started well for you , The weather down here is doing its best to be a P.I.T A .
    We managed to do a little to fit a second clamp to the folding hinge on the frame , it just needs a little grinding to perfect it , but it's there when there is an improvement in both me and the weather l will finish it and do a local touch up on the area . Currently have some diy to sort before I can start again .

    The conservatory roof has been replaced this week and everything has been moved out , currently the trike , bike and models are in the dining room until we finish the diy and making good the conservatory.

    Hi Folks

    With the continuing building work taking place in the conservatory I am unable to get the trike out from the dining room :wub: . The 2032 button cell front lamps arrived last weekend and I have fitted them . As the trike won't be used at night ( they are just in case lamps ) I think they will be ideal . After all that effort l need a cup of tea :cheers:

    Hopefully the work will be finished in the next week or so WP_20180116_16_50_07_Pro.jpg allowing me to get the trike out of the house., maybe into some sunshine.:sun:

    regards Emma

Went over the toll bridge and looked at the view before ending up at lancing, making the trip into a circular route by coming home via Shoreham beach and the lock gates .
