Thursday, Finally got to m.o.t garage, Passed with a couple of advisories, first was illegible frame number, the frame was powder coated and has filled in the numbers, you can just about make most of them out, so he let that go. The other was the ancient tyres, they are not damaged so he let them go, these were planned to be changed asap. anyway.
So I'm quite happy with the outcome, just a few running foibles to iron out and a pair of tyres to fit.
