    Have started to stray...... back to the German roots for a while!

    Trying to turn this ugly duckling into a somewhat cool looking contraption like this:

    The "Blue Danube"-img_4099.jpg

    She is all pulled apart in the usual boxes. Engine is in good nick, so cosmetics only. Then onto the frame mods (welding? Yuk!) and bolting on expensive baubles to create a (hopefully registerable) cruiser....

    after that? Who knows.... all good fun

    Hmmm - knobbly tyres do not a cruiser make! I was going to ask if No. 2 was a picture of the world's most overweight speedway bike, but speedway bikes don't have lights or brakes - or even gears for that matter!

    Oh well - as long as you don't turn it into a chopper!!

    Cheers

    If you're happy I can move your thread into the 'Completed/ Near Completed Projects' sub-forum, that way it won't get lost. You'll be in good company. . .

    I spent quite a bit of time yesterday going over your thread and gave you 10/10
    For someone new to Citroen and especially the D you have excelled - the car looked superb in the flesh last weekend, very hard to fault.

    Cheers

    The Déesse has all the characteristics of one of those objects fallen from another universe that fed the mania for novelty in the eighteenth century and a similar mania expressed by modern science fiction: the Déesse is first and foremost the new Nautilus.

    Thank you Chris for the compliment! And thanks to all for helping, parts and advice - a year of toiling, but well worth it!

    Yes, happy for you to move me into the darker recesses of the blog... if you are still up for it, we should try and rustle up Mark for next weekend (3rd of November) and swing by the Cars & Coffee Meet in Brisbane?

    Mark, if you a reading this, can you make it - two DS are better than one!

    I think 3/11 is Thursday and Saturday is the 5th
    Any day I wake up and don't have to go to work, is a good day
    Every day is a good day
