    It would go well with this little beauty, which you would need if Sue caught you spending $7K on a trike masquerading as a wheelchair

    Your dead right Alex. The new one has double cross/pivot bars and is solid ali frame is also all solid not like the old one.

    I count myself lucky I wasn't in it anywhere.

    The new "Blue Bird" looks pretty fast n all, Sue may have to go into training to be able to keep up with it. And you may end up with a new slick back hair do from the wind

    Thanks been looking for a new name for this and seeing as "The Blue Bird" has been restored and Campbell is one speed demon I admired. I has to be it.

    Slick back hair do never I swore I'd never have a comb over either rather shave it orf make me go faster. Yes I know my kids tell me often the bald spot at the back is getting larger but hey I'm 56 if Prince harry at 30 something can get away with it so can I.

    Oh Sue's training between dog and grandies its already happening.

    About 18months ago fell while doing my shopping,broke my hip.RFDS flew me to the city where they fixed the hip but ive not been able to walk properly since. Six months later i had a knee replacement on the same leg.
    i have no pain from the hip or the knee but still cant walk without my walking frame.im worried about being in the shed, i wobble all over the place. i used to be a member of the local mens shed but wasnt allowed in the workshop
    if they were using machines. im currently busy converting my garden to raised beds. i feel so bloody useless.
    sorry for the rant
    Cheers Fred

    geez Fred, you are doing it tough! Just one suggestion, what about making plastic models, cars, aeroplanes, motor bikes ..... whatever floats you boat (pun intended ��)? You can have the kit and glue bought on line and delivered to your door, they are very light, you can do a little and then take a break?
    Hang in there mate!
