money bags .... i think you would be referring to mike and jonsey there Laughing Laughing

Hardwood is nice but has a price tag , everyone can afford it , but i would say for a avrage engine size trolley it would cost at least £60 for materials .

Kev have you no reclamation yards near you? you could pick up some hardwood from them at a reasonable price. It's somewhere I keep meaning to go o but never seem to have the time at present.
Engine is looking well, fingers crossed no leaks.

Nothing worse then watching paint dry Kev, you'll get there soon enough and the wait will be worth while.

I have to say of all the small engines the BSA has the best sound reminds me of all the old british bikes that used to be around when I was a kid.

I have no room in my shed to do big engines I have to work on them outside but at least I have a garden to keep them in not like you kev, don't know what I do without the space I have.

Well I hope this doesn't make his head swell to much but Kev does do a good job with his restorations. He does check them over and do repairs where necessary, not just slap on a coat of paint to sell an engine at a profit.
