NO MATTER WHAT TROUBLE YOU THINK YOU’RE IN – WE CAN HELP
notice a few changes up the back of the mag this month. Don’t panic – it’s still all about Ps-era bikes and how to acquire and fix them – but you’ll note a couple of new series.
New series Resto SOS aims to help and inspire those of us with a stalled resto (or two) in the shed. You’re not alone if you launched into a bike project only to find that you ran out of momentum and enthusiasm. The abandoned project has a way of becoming something so much bigger than the deconstructed sum of its disassembled parts – it can become a symbol of all the other things we’ve failed to do as the years tick down. Or at least it can do if we let it.
In Resto SOS we will meet those at the end of their mechanical motivation; unable to find focus for their spannering skills. Resto reveries becoming rolling realities as workshop procrastination disappears. How will these miracles in metal come to pass? Every month we will go and see someone with a stalled project, get a handle on what’s going on and why, then come up with a plan and a schedule to get things going again. A few months later we’ll be back to see, and hopefully ride, the completed bike.
So we need to hear from you to keep the series going. Email alan. see[email protected]media.co.uk and tell me what you’ve got and where you’re at with it. Some pics would be good too. Then you might just get a visit from me or Medium G, or if the state you’re in is particularly calamitous you may well find both of us darkening your threshold.
You will also note another new item this month – My Bargain Bike Buy. We know that PS readers can be a canny bunch and know the way to a deal. Share your good fortune and how you came by it with the PS massive. At the same time we’re not above a little selfdeprecation and know that you aren’t either. So if your bargain buy turned out to be more of a money pit and not the steal of a wheel deal you at first thought it to be, we want to hear about that too. Again, email me at alan. see[email protected]media.co.uk. I’m as intrigued as you are to see what our fellow PS readers have been up to.
