    Great looking job David :thumbsup: – just completed a bike for my Nephew with his name on it and changing the colour in parts. Had many a ride-on toy in the workshop!

    As Chris says, it’s our duty as a dad! 😆

    Thank you Chris. Can you image how much we’d charge for some of the "Homer’s" we do. Hope you all have a great Christmas.

    Invoice! You must be joking, that’s a cash on delivery job. That customers caught me multiple times over the last few years getting work done then refusing to pay. You think I’d have learnt by now 🙁
