Due to my desire to see Adamski's BX GT we have organised a meet at the Birmingham motorcycle museum which is right next to Birmingham airport.

So far theres:

At the moment it`s looking good. Anyone else fancy it? Convoy perhaps?

Billy, i've no idea how much admission is to the bike museum. I'm not planning on going in. I went a few years back before the big fire.

Damn it, just the wrong weekend for me :evil:

Currently in the process of an immenent house move, any other time would have been spot on.

Have a good time all that can make it :D

90% certain I`ll be there. I`ll call you later or tomorrow morning and let you know Ian just in case there`s a change of plan either side.
Tim, if you pm me about 9.00 tonight and jog my memory I`ll root the BX book pack out and bring it with me.
If anyone else is interested the museum opens at 09.30 and admission prices are: Adults £6.95, pensioners (there must be loads on here :lol: ) & kids (4-15) £4.95, under fours go free.
Anyone else coming along?

Well that was nice. Good to meet a few more people off the forum again. Ian your TXD is stunning, Cavmad I love the the twin lamp conversion on that estate. Your welcome to the Merc 190 anytime you want it. Youd be doing me a favour and you could make use of that auto box and gearstick etc to convert yours to auto. Im sure there are a lot of other parts that would be handy too. Plus its got good 195 tyres from a good manufacturer! Unfortunatey some opportunistic sod nicked two of the hubcaps though.
