I’ll start....


I’ve recently been cleaning, rearranging and sorting some stuff in my shed that had become out of control and impossible to work in.

Some earlier photos from when it was semi usable

This is after I removed most of the bikes and some of the clutter




I repurposed the old carpet that we ripped up from the spare room

Oh deary deary me.....How Did I not spot that one???????....DB4 spare bike wearing DB2 Junior tank and seat unit....I've never made that connection before that such a thing could be mated together....I know that the holes for connecters are different...but yeh.....Tank and seat unit fits.....which means cheap track day glass or carbon from Germany would go on......Now I wonder if the fairing would go on also>>>???....Headlight is the same unit so aperture for the nose cone is the same......Thus....Would DB4 bodywork go on DB2?....that would be a good mix and intervention of NEw and old welding together.....

Its very possible that when they made the DB4 they copied the same frame geometry but made it out of oval avional frame tubing.....instead of Chrome moly.....Engines the same(ish)…..so not beyond means or stretch to think it could be made to suit....Old bike in new clothes....or new bike in old clothes....Hhmmm

I was starting to get worried that you weren’t going to spot that one mate! I thought I was going to have to post this photo.....

I doesn’t fit great but probably could be made to fit with some modification and brackets. It was totally by accident really, I just Wanted to get the DB2 seat unit up off the floor and the spare DB4 seemed like a good place at the time

Pics from last year. Cleared and straightened up a bit in preparation for a race watching party.



Winter set, bikes up on pallet racking (in the summer the bikes come down and the sofa goes up).





A few bikes not shown.

Wow...….And heres me...ready to upload my garage.....which is more full than either yours ray...and Brian.....But...only because of its sheer pawltry size by comparison....and...I recognise that Green and white and red Bimota with the white wheels...I recall reading the article about it...some lovely lovely bikes and a lovely set up....wheres the bed and bathroom?...Phone and takeway home delivery menus>??As I'd seriously live in either of them....be prepared for "SMALL"...but well packaged....yours...."feeling most humbled..."

During lockdown I built a cat house....coz I've fook all else to do



Garage....slightly bigger than Cat house

Theres 4 across the front here....Boy do I live in a small tightly packed country in comparison....



Now if I take Just one out...I can get to the back.....4 across the front...but a stonking five across the back









Wall space...like all other space....also at a premium...ladders are dual purpose



I think I need to get rid of the "garden"..albeit its only about as big as the "man cave"...then the garden tools could go

Last one...I have to tilt the camera to a jaunty angle....its the only way I can get all 9 bikes in shot together....I'm now going off to a very very dark small corner to hang my head in shame.....cry a lot....give myself a big kick in the arse and get my house sold and move somewhere with some friggin space and no Neighbours....Yours....SO SO Ashamed....life and everything you do or achieve in it...is "relative".....I am the poor relative.....

Some people dare to ask "How do you work in there?"....Simples...I dont...if it aint raining....bike requiring attention comes out and gets worked on outside....If its being full nut and bolt resto...it takes up residence in the Dining room until its fully built...and then I figure out how to get it out....as only stripped and restored bits go into the "clean" room


So So ashamed...... Arrow

2bims, now that's what I call tightly packed. Hard to cry tears or be ashamed when you have a V Due. The ladder "shelf" is uh... interesting!

FWIW, that garden stuff belongs out back hung on the wall next to the garden if you ask me. Garden stuff is meant to get wet and dirty. Free up wall space, minimize the risk to bikes when you need to do gardening and save some steps.

Quick picture of the garage. Bimota strung up while I was in the process of re-build. I will have a proper tidy up once the Bim is completed and free's up the ramp for the next project. Wood stove burning, grab some essential supplies from the house (beer) then close the door and keep warm and busy
