    Made in India. Royal Enfield sold everything to an Indian company in the 1980's I think it was.

    You can never have enough sheds...

    Nice shed but it depends how you rate the security risk but it looks as though the door hardware is just screwed on. Not easy to see but are those hinges and the bolt secure? One coach bolt through each side of each hinge in place of a screw and similar for each side of the bolt . Long enough to go right through with decent washers and nuts on the inside. Ideally a bolt and padlock top and bottom.

    New project.

    That's a really useful plan, thank you for that!. Once the floor is removed, I will definitely look into beefing up the frame!. Thanks again.

    New project.

    Not sure of the weight and track width/footprint of your MG2, but the frame supports under the floor are probably laid out like this- The 2 longitudinal beams that taper off to the front are the ones that the boards are fixed to, with the ends resting around the edge in the frame angle iron. The 4 red circled points are weak and only the flat edge of the Angle iron is welded to the frame to clear the leaf springs/mounts, so you may need/want to beef them up. My neighbour used 38mm (1.1/2" thick boards). Good project....enjoy it.

    Thank you for the pictures Anglo traction, very helpful in what to look out for. I like the idea of the box section to protect the end floorboard, I will have to look into something similar , I'm planning to use scaffolding boards to replace the floor, and with the good old imperial /napoleonic measurements discrepancies, I will have a small gap to fill, so some box will do the job nicely. Due to visitors, I didn't get much achieved today, only got the checkerplate replaced with perspex, still need to finish with mastic. I notice one difference between mine and your neighbours, mine has a seam running the centreline of the roof, (note the piece of timber on the roof in mine) where the other appears to be one piece. Although the piece of timber is a bit soft, I'm loathe to touch it as there are a lot of screws holding the roof panels into it, I think I will run mastic along the seam and hope for the best....

    Pushing Rusty Tin !....do I want to?

    That look's in reasonable nick Chris. I remember my Dad keeping his paraffin in a real nice galvanised 2 Gall can with the brass lever-lock cap and chain. Don't know what happened to it. Going to move the mowers on.......need the space.

    Sorry Ewan and any other's b'days that I have missed. Congrats to the 'Key of the Door' Ewan, but I daresay you are more than capable of making one yourself with no sweat!. Regards

    New project.

    I've been to look at my neighbour's today and he had only sealed the side door temporarily, so it's back in use. He's finished positioning the boards for fit, but is taking them back out to finish the Frame/Chassis jobs. This shows the r/h rear corner where the outer skin tucks inside the angle iron frame- He will be fitting 40 x 40 box steel on the threshold edge to protect the first board's edge. And the same corner on outside. Double sealed with silicone, then flexible acrylic between the outer skin and Angle Iron frame before the temporary red sealing paint- This inside shot shows the extension space to the front which originally housed the Digger Arm and Bucket. I think the window is slide opening and the walls are lined with ply - And the front end view- Rear additional doors at the top to fill the originally open gap. The lock with a sliding linkage mechanism- But he hinted that the back doors will disappear in favour of a H Duty roller shutte. It will serve more as storage for his current early 70s Honda 4 projects and the M'bike trailer he's just finished building, but wants it road worthy too.

    Look up KAB P2 seats on that auction site, lots of wheel horses used that model seat and we’ve always got them at a reasonable price.

    Morning all, I've looked at recovering my wheel horse seat and it's going to be expensive if even really possible. Do you know where I can find a good yet cheap (I know...pick one lol) seat? I've seen the Clarke's ts5 seat, any more options? Thanks
