i knew (before i posted my previous comment) these responses would come from the internet-peacekeepers. i posted it anyway because i felt like it. still do btw.
Like i said "no offense". I just think an extra forum-thingy for a member fixing a caravan is plain ridiculous, that's all.

-my previous comment has nothing to do with him, the tin, the build or zits ;)

And the don't like/don't click comment is stupid. I do like the build, never said i didn't.

IMO, it does "fit" because he intends to use it to transport a bike(s) too. No different than a man cave or a shed/shop.

Precisely. So why a special forum-thingy?

It is nice to see that our members creativity goes well beyond just motorcycles. SpeedFiend is showing the kind of ingenuity that makes the folks here so great.  Our kind Mods decided to provide us a place for just that.

Now, let it go Bert. You are now going out of your way to create an issue where there doesn't need to be one.

SpeedFiend, please forgive us for giving taking your thread wayyyyyyyy off course. Kindly resume your most excellent build progress photos.

Hey bert, I'm not feelin the love from you, brov. I did post it in the "latest purchase" thread and the guys showed some interest so Tim hooked it up. Tim Rocks!  If you don't like it, go away. Thanks

Personally, I can't wait to see what else pops up here.

Hmm. my bad than i guess. Didn't realise it's a place for all of us to post our "non-bike" projects. Thought it was for your caravan only. I really like your caravan and i'm sorry i gave the opposite intentions.

I'm interested in other projects here aswell. Once again, my appologies.

No harm, no foul. I'm glad you like it.

    For the record, I do feel like this is motorcycle related. I'm planning on using it to haul bikes. But more importantly, we started thinking about a camper to use for the British in the BlueRidge Rally. An annual event that I've been attending since I was 6. My father always inculded us in everything he did. We share a love of vintage stuff and  now he's my best friend (man, we butted heads when I was a teen.). My wife though, she does not fancy sleeping on the ground. And I thought this would be a fun progect we could all do together.  I hope that my kids will have some great memories of camping and vintage bikes. And at least one of them will look after all the junk that me, my father and his father have been collecting.

If you'd rather talk bikes though, I do have a build going.

Progress pics for both progects comming soon!

Skinned.


A spooky undeer the street light shot. Not half as scary as it looks inthe daylight.


Then, check out what I found stashed in the ceiling!

An old .32 revolver.  loaded.  It looks to be a pretty inexpensive hand gun. Likely bought at the sports counter of a department store. I didn't try to fire it yet. Gonna take it to an uncle who knows more about it.


Hope tp have the walls down and floor out by next week.

Hey this thing is awesome. Sweet gun! Did the skin come off clean so you can re-use it? Can you post more pics? I found a pretty good deal on a camper local on cl and I'm seriously thinking about jumping on it...

Yeah, the skin came off pretty well. I hope to reuse most of it. Theres one section, where a brach came down on it, that I'll have to replace. I can't find a replacment siding, so I'm thinking maybe somebody with a gutter break could make a piece for me.

It really depends on how rotton your camper is. If its only a little in the corners and the floor isnn't bad, you might not have to skin it.

The lil pistol is kinda neat. I was hoping to dig a little further and find a bag of hundred dollar bills or maybe D.B. Coopers stash. But no, theres still the floor though!
