    There is a method to the madness, left side of the pegboard is SAE, right side is Metric! Haha!

    Got an actual vehicle hanging on the wall of my workshop.
    Sometimes as I go to bed at nite I worry a bit whether I've got it adequately secured.......

    I love it!
    I met a guy once who told me he had always wanted a Norton Commando, so he found one and did a total resto on it. He said he fired it up one time, just to hear it run, and then drained the oil and mounted it on his on his living room wall for decoration!

    As Bob has said in the past, Mrs. Mailman has some say-so as to how far this "decoration" is going to go...;)

    Wow Dude that's awesome!, actually there are no bad sheds just varying degrees of good.

    I went to pick up some parts from my mates tonight and he said it was ok to post a couple of photos.
    The bike on the shelf is a SDR200 and the picture is an X ray of an XV500 rear brake backing plate.

  17. This is my garage art as such;

    I have been a Blues Brothers tragic from the first time I saw the movie

    I guess a little patriotism never hurt anybody

    A long lost Ozzie brewery I thought they made some good suds myself.

    Ah, my little whiteboard which I purchased just after my XS so I could write all the to do's.
    Picture at the top is what was my guiding light.

    The fist full of $100 dollar bills is there to remind me that after all it is only money; and allegedly you cannot take it with you but, I might take the XS with me tho.

    Well, Jim, I don't expect Martha Stewart to do a spread on my shop any time soon either. Some of you guys have shops prettier than my living room!
