Well another year back at the ''Ace'', the old place never changes......

Image

The girlies are out early
Image

Jamie and Trev discuss the finer points of chopper restoration,
Image

a bit of elbow grease (very deep pockets) and a bit of wire wool it should polish up
Image

Its not just choppers,

There were some really nice machines on show, especially these tricked out Puch Maxis'
ridden by the Stig
Image

Nice use of a Brookes saddle
Image

Image

A pair of Fantic Cabelleros
Image

Then the scooterboys started to arrive
Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

Then 'trouble' turned up!!!
Image

Image

Couldn't decide what paint colour these two were, took a few moments to realise they weren't...... it kinda works 8)
Image

Not an 'epic' rideout like the day before(see Jakes excellent video), but just a short blast to warm us up a bit.

Bit of a strange canal boat, but waterproof.Any ideas......oil rig lifeboat???
Image

Image

What every well dressed chopperist should be wearing......velvet and tweed
Image

Image

This is new take on the first pub stop of the day.....the pub was closed..
Image

Image

While we were stood there this guy (paddy) pulled up in his car, and asked if he could have a go on one of the bikes..........
Image

Image

finally found a pub that was open, but we had missed the Easter Egg hunt :(
Image

Image

Image

Image

Jack recieving his rosette for nicest bike,well done to Natallie on her RSW, and the young lady with the pink 5 speed, who also got prizes :) :)
Image

Natallies' nice RSW
Image

5 speed pinkie
Image

This guy arrived,a bit later in the day, he had been out the day before on the 10'til 10 epic, and brought along some of his creations
Image

Image

Image

Lock up your girlies
Image

Period bike transport... check out the reg.no. on the vespa........
Image

Image

Thanks to everyone who made the effort and turned up on a cold and chilly day, (not like last year, when we got sunburnt).
Every year we say thats the last one, but I think we have become a fixture on the Ace Cafes' calender, so see you next year.

It was a great turnout for such a cold day, I'm guessing the cafe sold many
More hot drinks than usual. It's always nice to catch up and see other people's
bikes and projects, and the Ace meet is definitely a must on the calendar.

I will treasure the Rosette and the leaded glass panel, which will take pride
Of place on my bike room door.

Many Thanks to Trevor and Elaine for a great day.

Many thanks also to Laurence, who kindly brought down a set of RSW forks in
Original metallic blue paint to match the tallie that John is repairing for me.

A great day, lots of chatting, lots of tea, a rideout, a pub visit and to top it
All a prize.

And then a night of drinking at our favourite Euston pub followed by a 5 mile
Ride home made in record time finding a new short cut.

The day couldn't have been any better.
