Miscellaneous Projects (2011)
A holding 'vehicle' just so I've got a place to blog my projects that aren't related to a vehicle.
Ford Mondeo Estate (2001)
Bought as my daily driver after selling my Silver Mondeo saloon. Needed an estate to house dogs. I was getting fed up of slobber stains on my seats.
Renault Laguna Estate (2003)
Bought when the Monde died. Dog mobile daily driver. Shat it's gearbox out after 258 miles of owning it.
MZ ETZ 251 (1990)
The MZ started life as a bored eBay purchase, it was destined to be a race bike. Then I wrote off my road bike so the MZ found a new purpose, which it did fantastically right up until the day it was stolen. When it was recovered it became a race bike project again. View the articles to see the build.
Suzuki GSX-R SRAD (2001)
The SRAD replaced the bandit as every day bike. I needed something more fun, and something I was proud of. It gets a hard life, rarely ridden below the redline, or with both wheels on the ground. But I love it dearly. A new set of fairings in winter 2007 spruced it up a little.
Yamaha TZR (1991)
The TZR was bought from a friend for £300 as a project. A lot of work went into it until I moved away to uni and was forced to abandon it. Click on the related articles to view the project.
Suzuki Bandit (1997)
The bandit was bought to replace my MZ when it was stolen as my main form of transport. It was bland but perfect.
Vauxhall Corsa (1998)
My car. I was fed up getting cold in winter, so this was my 21st birthday present. It was owned from new by my Mum. It will gain some subtle modifications over time.
Yamaha XJ (1994)
First bike after passing my test. Paid £425, rode it, learnt knee down, crashed it, killed it, sold it for £380.
Kawasaki KLR (1994)
Bought after I sold the GSX-R 600. I missed bikes too much and wanted a commuter that was cheap, fuel efficient but still fun. Enter, the two wheeled land rover.
Suzuki GS (2000)
A mile-munching, all weather, live outside commuter. Swapped in early 2009 for the KX125 motocross bike project.
Honda CBR (2000)
Bought as a road legal, road going track bike. To take advantage of being closer to Mallory and Cadwell park.
Vauxhall Corsa (1995)
My 4 wheeled runaround. Winter was too cold. I wimped out. And I just can\'t help myself but do some modifications to it...
Kawasaki KX (1989)
Status:Sold after a full strip and rebuild...got bored
Non-road legal MX bike. Lets get muddy!
MZ ETZ (1994)
My first bike, cost £200. Was fairly rough and would cut out when held flat out for more than about 5 seconds. Got me through my test. Loved it.
BMW 318i (1993)
Aquired as a project, swapped for a 2L C20XE engine I originally bought for the Corsa. Will hopefully become my everyday runaround.
Thumpstar Pitbike (2005)
A bargainous pitbike I spotted on a web forum locally. I intended to do some pitbike trackdays. But as always never got around to it. So instead I stripped, cleaned and sold it.
Audi 80 (1990)
Bought as a project MOT failure for £120. Ran it around for a month or so, sold it for £215
Ford Fiesta Diesel (1996)
Bought for £450 off eBay, an economical commuter. Did 75 miles Clutch went, fixed it. Did 110 miles, wouldn\'t start, sold it. Lemon.

Status: Road legal for another year!
Bought to replace the Lemon that was the Fiesta. Cheap, everyday commuter.
Suzuki SV (1999)
Status: No MOT or tax :(
Bought to replace the CBR 600. I wanted something in better nick, so I bought yet another project! Good choice genius...
Husqvarna TE (1999)
Swapped for the sv650, it\'s a road registered animal of a dirt bike. Loud, powerful and light. My favorite combination!
Ford Mondeo (2002)
Bought to allow me to move away from cars that cost less than the sound system I\'ve bodged into the boot. A touch of class with a bit of power.
Super Stomp z140 (2010)
Good quality pitbike, The plan is to use it at the local go kart track - Stretton, and maybe some low level racing.
GasGas TXT (2001)
A competition trials bike, swapped for the Husqvarna, aquired with a blown headgasket and partially disassembled.
Muddy Fox Boomslang (2007)
My mountain bike, used for as much trail riding as I can handle now I\'m helpfully located in the midlands, not far from Wales, Derbyshire and Yorkshire. Full suspension with upgraded front and rear shocks from standard, uprated wheels and gears too.
Ford Mondeo Estate (2003)
A fairly ratty, but unbelievably cheap Mondeo Estate I bought to replace my ever faithful Mondeo Saloon. Got fed up of carrying dogs on the rear seats of my car, hence the estate.
