New Additions in June: Pix from Beaulieu 2005 & Voyager to Vence

For photos from the latest gathering of UK FFers, go to 'Events and Meetings' in the Image Galleries section and click on Beaulieu 2005. On a blisteringly hot weekend in June, this entertaining annual event at the historic village of Beaulieu in the New Forest saw most of 'The Usual Suspects' turn up, along with some welcome newcomers. Most notably, Beaulieu 2005 was the first public appearance of Andrew Gibbens' ComforTmax and its superb level of finish was much admired. Originally transformed to FF mode by Royce Creasey way back in 2002, Andrew has spent much of his spare time over the last three years making top-quality bodywork and seating to make a 'proper job' that almost looks as if it could be an official Yamaha option. (For pix of how it looked back in 2002, go to 'Royce Creasey's creations'.)

Voyager to Vence

A bad start with no brakes, and an ignominious end in a van, but the bulk of the trip was a great success (honest!).

As I left for the ferry on the Friday evening, I had just fitted the new rear tyre, which had distracted me from my previous antics - bleeding the front AP calipers - always a problem. The result was discs covered in brake fluid. It was raining steadily, so sharp braking was unwise, but I came over in a cold sweat as I contemplated alpine passes with ineffective brakes. Logical thinking diagnosed the problem as I rode gingerly towards Oxford, so I washed the discs in petrol and restored stopping power.

First post from Northern California; looking for unfinished FFs

Hi I'm in northern california and while I've been interested in FF machines for a long time I've only recently gotten serious about owning one.

I've built some pretty unique bikes and trikes over the years but it's been a long time. My biggest claim to fame was a buggy wheeled speedway bike that got disqualified without any explaination except "you gotta be kidding me"

I'd heard that there were Quasars to be bought, but imagine none of them in the US,
If anyone has an unfinished project they would like to cash out of to move on to another, I'd love to hear about it.
