Auto Gearhead

automotive,carIf, like me, you at the moment are in your late forties or early fifties, and have had some passing interest in two wheels, then there’s a pretty good likelihood you will have owned or knew somebody who owned one of these bikes…let the reminiscences flood back! The Bay City Rollers, Spangles, The Sweeney, platform soles and horrendous flares.

The plan is to establish the brand new store in partnership with my Brother who is a motor mechanic with approx 7 years’ experience (actually is aware of his stuff and has managed the last two garages his worked at) has also worked in each dealerships and personal garages. I am a pc engineer with a business diploma, so I’m hoping these abilities will work nicely collectively to make sure our success.

As I discussed earlier, I rolled the clay a lot thicker than regular within the sample mokume stack for this tutorial in order that you might see the layers extra simply within the stack cross-section images. The photographs of the shaved stack present why it’s a bad thought to make the layers thick. Notice how the bands of color within the patterned slices are thick and broadly spaced? That will not happen if you follow my instructions to roll out the clay layers thinner.

One of many first ‘enduro’ sports mopeds, introduced to a ready UK viewers in 1974, the Fantic soon gathered a loyal following. A 7.2 bhp two stroke Minarelli engine ensured a mean high velocity of 55mph. Gasoline consumption was a good 125mpg, not unhealthy for a machine with such a great high finish end result. In all probability a bonus having such good gasoline results as the tank capacity was a meagre 1.1 gallon.

We also satisfaction ourselves for the know-how and luxury built into our design; so much in order that now we have included T and C inside our company brand which depicts a Segedunum Domus the Latin word which means Sturdy Fort”. The Romans used it a few years in the past as a reputation for his or her fort, the remains of that are still located adjoining to our premises on the banks of the river Tyne Newcastle upon Tyne. As in Roman days we imagine in the strength of expertise, design and luxury being constructed into our product for the benefit and pleasure of our customers.
