1971 Mini Cooper Convertible

Wendy's 1971 Mini Cooper convertible following major engine/gearbox work and the addition of the spots.  Goes like stink and is great fun.

A Couple of Local Historical Markers.

Kincaid-Anderson House approx. 6 miles fromthe VC Summer plant in Jenkinsville, SC
Brick Church near to plant, inactive since 1920 although the cemetary has been utilized sinnce that date.

The Beemer next to the entrance to the Kincaid-Anderson House. Good old Scottish connection and a nice house. Understand that it is owned now by an attorney who works in Columbia.

Yamaha DT400E

 My 1978 DT400E after a quick clean following a few laps of the lot. Love this bike.

The travelling Guinness clock pamphlet

Just obtained the rather nice pamphlet about the Guinness crazy travelling clock that did the rounds in the US being a replica of the original for the Festival of Britain Pleasure Gardens at Battersea, London in 1951.

Ducati 900SL

I'm debating whether to donate my 1992 Superlight to the Barber Museum, after owning it 21 years it only sits in the shed and it is so nice to look at. It does run and I take it out occasionally but not road legal here in the US. Thinking of using it as a track bike too.
 Glasgow plate.

look at those Marvic wheels and fully floating cast iron discs.

#79 of 500.
