Cavcraft 2020: (Needs to be) Burned by the fire, love is blind can't you see my desire?


Recommended Posts

Still can't get into the boot of the Mercedes. Three of us trying today to no avail. No sign of any jump point under any foot well, either. A mate of a mate is a Merc specialist so going to get him out to it this week as he can get it, apparently.

So, in other news after a few days of waiting, this arrived in my possession today. Collection was the complex matter of literally walking 15 yards to get it. Happy to report it eclipses EVERYTHING else purchased in the dire interior stakes thus far.

Ladies and genitalmen, one proudly announces the arrival of 'Desire'.

Keeping the wheel trims as have owned them for years (gave them to the owner of this when he first got it) and the battery will be swapped for a shit one.

I can certainly understand why the PO had the desire to get shot of that!

 

Genuinely only because he'd taken it for a pre-MOT and it wanted too much with welding etc, or he'd still be rolling round in it.

That latest moped is so ugly it's kind of endearing...keep looking at things like that and thinking they look like a fun toy lately.

Sadly they make about as much sense as a chocolate teapot given the roads around here.  You'd be safer jumping out of a plane without a parachute than trying to use one to actually get anywhere.

Last year, when I took my Scomadi for an MOT I ended up buying a 750/4 chopper. This year, when I took my Scomadi for an MOT I bought that little 50cc scooter (further up) and, erm, another Scomadi...

If I'd had the choice at the time, my 200 would have been 'Atomic orange', it's defo the best colour they came in. This one is a 125 with a few extras (some of which might mysteriously find their way onto the 200) including an aftermarket exhaust, which won't fit the other one. The 'Adidas' decals will come off, but I've got some spare (plain) side panels in this colour in my garage somewhere. All of the TL models (50/125/200) had the same panels, so I suppose I could convert my other one from metallic grey to orange, but CBA.

Have taxed worse etc. He's gone a bit heavy with the tinting film on that back window, mind.

 

I think the woodgrain effect on the film looks rather fetching...
