What kiwi blokes build in their sheds - the final part

..

Testing day finally at Pukekohe - 240k up the back straight even with the gearing too low,
feeling like you are being fired out of a canon and  not to mention the amazing
grip of the new lighter wheels and slicks.

Tony - I think you can rate this as a huge success!!

..

Almarro 340 monoblocs


Interestingly the output tubes (the big ones) are russian, and were once used in the Mig 25 fighter

Only the hardy souls ..........

..

Wind whistling like some a south pole adventure. Somebody’s long suffering girlfriend muttering on the bench ignoring the “can you pass me the 17mm ” request.


Hefty tripod useless , needed to be weighted with bricks.........

But, surf, oh yes, this is the west coast and I love it.

..

Part of the street art drawn as therapy by "Sparky"
the pyromaniac electrician during a period of rehab.

The part of the exhibition with all the "props"
connecting family members to a life of crime
