SHD autojumble

 Off to SHD with Gordie, a full English in the next door cafe and then off to get my hands dirty in the many parts boxes, hello to Bob who had a collection of bottom draw bits and bobs and a long chat about the love hate shovel relationship, including long discussion over clutch tamers, the best one to fit and the best way to set it up, I've got to know Bob quite well over the least year, he doesn't usually give free advice (well its his job to work on your Harley) but I always leave our conversation with my head full, I have to sit quietly for 5 minutes and try and save all that free advice.  Into Steve's workshop and a look around a flathead up on the operating table.
 A great 60's ironhead, call it what you will, but I see a summer pub hopper (you don't get bars in England), a cast case kicker, very nice.
Then round the corner to have a word with Shaun who is selling shovel bits out of his coveted caddy, which is finally up for sale, thing is I'm not sure I want one now ! Later on I ring Tim back who wants to buy the remaining BM parts to build up another BM, result cash flow, and guess what, I have found a swing arm just waiting for a mail back on postage!
