Hmmmm...Well I'm not riding my Db5 Borsalino....But it wouldn't "hurt" if I was to buy this version of an Italian Made Borsalino and put a few miles on her???//….What say you all?

Laughing Laughing I know you're struggling for space in your shed and you've said that you don't have any wall hanging space. You could ride it I suppose but someone will probably knock you off the thing, or you might get picked up by a yuppie

Hey.....Its a garage....albeit not a very big one...but its a garage....not an expansive Show Room with palatial acres of space and wall hanging as far as the eye can see...but its a garage...

A shed is what my brother bought when first acclimatising himself to the internet.....And he's a Builder by trade.....Checked out the pictures....floor pan and yeh...looked sweet.....thing turned up flat backed and he thought...Hhmmm....very compact.....Laid it all out and raised up the wall panels.....4foot 6 high it was...to the apex of the pitched roof.....More Childrens play house than Man cave....Ebay ad had no height measurement on it....and just a library photo of "a shed ".....the pack had clearly been opened and examined previously...teehee...I still laugh at his error in not asking the height....


I've had a similar..."dodgy" ebay purchase recently....Thats just turned up....quick post from Denmark...5 days from ordering.....Check out the images of the advert...and you tell me....What do you see?...Then read the words....I ordered the antique version






Flat aluminium sign. It is made to look antique but it is a new sign.
Thickness 0,5 mm
Size available:
Small 10x15cm (3.9x5.9inch)
Medium 15x20cm (5.9x7.9inch)
Large 20x30cm (7.9x11.8inch)

Printed on one side of the plate.

Every product is made by hand. The image has been dye sublimated onto the plate.
The durable nature of this printing process makes this plate ideal for use in the house or the garage..
Please Note: For long time use this item is recommended for indoor, or shaded outdoor area, use only. Keep away from direct sunlight.

Wall Fixing: Four pre-drilled holes in each corner for easy fixing.

I ordered the only size they offered ...A4...the "pictures" are great...and to me...look like raised 3D stamped letters and genuine rust like steel plate....they tell you they are hand made and printed onto alloy 2mm plate...they are....But it doesnt mention they are 3D...or rusty.....What turned up is shiney shiney new...and clearly a photo printed onto a flat plate of a 3D rusty sign...Hhmmmm...the irony is that it just made be what the sign says....Grumpy.....If the cap fits....

This is what I got



And this is what I thought I was going to get



And nice shiney side on image
