I hate that happening, even if the total price is still reasonable. We've imported stuff from the States sometimes with customs and postage costing three or four times the cost of the item, so annoying.

Conversely I've driven 50 miles away for a cheap part which probably cost far more in fuel than posting it.

There's a suspension mount that is made in Europe but it is for an old American car (albeit a European manufacturer), nobody stocks it or can order it in this country. Its about £12 in the states but it is close-enough replacement for a different part that costs £80 in this country. While it saves us some money, the idea of forking out £40-£50 for a £12 item that is made in Europe leaves a sour taste in my mouth.

Hi the first time i bought from states it was Bultaco Pursang Exhaust had shipping so thought thats fine. Then got a text from H.M Duty & Excise saying Charging me handling fees then got duty charge on top. If we do a deal with states and duty scrapped thats great but Not if in the long haul we are worst off as we need to think whats Best for our grandkids NOT us

I was given a Shield letter and thought O Crap am so Dead as have been finding Breathing harder as weeks pass. Anyway went into what's the point of doing anything but was so bored with that so sanded frame and sprayed it. Have put forks on and that's it until I can do exercise so doing a little bit each day if can but chest hurts but it's a hobby to keep mind active and body that was the whole point of it in first place. Anyway stay safe and do take care

Blue Oyster Cult (Don't Fear) The Reaper

The Pursang Mark 4 boat seat has a ghastly cut down middle a chip out of back and paint is flaking off and cracking on top. The Tank I ruined head down with embarrassment as I believe I could actually paint with different colours ( Page 2 ) So what did I do i sanded down and sprayed silver as had a few cans. Unfortunately something happened to paint or mixed with the other dry paint and all turned sticky and tacky and never went hard. Had No choice but to sit in Garden with a knife and peel it like a potato nearly got it to original red now. So when finished will show picture as to embarrassing at moment. I don't mind telling people about how i messed up but it's correcting your mistake what is important don't leave the mess for other people to take care off. Anyway take care and keep yourself safe.

Rolling Stones. PAINT IT BLACK
Morning Going to store the Pursang Mark 4 until I can find a original Air Box and side Panels to buy for it. Got the spray goo of tank just badge spaces left so sandpaper yet again. Decided Not Spraying NO more NOT going through this again. So much work deflated back tyre as got 2 broken spokes also tyre has gone hard. Will need to take to garage has hands have swollen again and also no way got the strength to remove tyre unless had a chainsaw ( Joke) Anyway will need to find a Astro seat for it NO way touching that seat base to much work also haven't got a seat for the boat base anyway. I bidded on the Pursang twice at HH classic but the price to far I think went around £1500 and with there fee's on top decided am Out. The Mrs wants the 3 Sherpa bikes gone now so been given my orders as they have sat and sat and she wants house decorated. Sold the Suzuki LT80 so she has hall back now wants dining room back she has been patient with my hobby so that's fine. Take Care of Yourselves

Hazel O'Connor. Will You
Morning the News constantly Doom and Gloom wear all going to be poor and broke so I thinking maybe I can pick up a bike cheap. Unfortunately Not the case when looking on eBay as still very expensive. Been looking at the big 2 stroke Road bikes Yamaha RD and Kawasaki KH or H1 or a Suzuki see if I can pick one up for Cash with a V5 with same Vins on document. The Pursang's still need parts and won't just pay whatever as am in NO rush to build with lockdown. The 3 Bultaco Sherpa's and spare tanks with all the box's of parts maybe I could do a trade for a Road 2 Stroke what they don't use anymore. Thoe most likely will put them up on eBay as single bike's as nobody will want to trade as with all the Fear being generated it's Cash,Cash Cash they're Want. Anyway take care of Yourselves and see if can find my Astro/Pursang/Yamaha/Kawasaki ? 😁
