ABOUT ME

I live in a camper van with a couple of West Highland Terriers for company.
My passion is photography but it is a work in progress.
I am always willing to share what knowledge I have and can be contacted through the comments on this post or e-mail ADRIAN
ALL IMAGES WILL ENLARGE WITH A LEFT CLICK

BEAUTIFUL.

This morning I visited a classic car show at Errol. It's not far away but the journey is quite a drag either via Perth or Dundee. Pity there isn't a ferry across the Tay. I made the mistake of taking the dogs. They aren't bad but are a bit of a pain on the lead, it's not something they are accustomed to.
I'll show some nicely restored bikes today.
 197cc VILLIERS AMBASSADOR.
 AJS 18? 500cc SINGLE.
BSA B33? 500cc SINGLE.
I think these are all from around 1950 but there was very little information, Perhaps I ought to have purchased the programme. 
I do have some more images and as I have bitten off more than I understand in Blender you may get drip fed the rest. I am using a free programme called FSpy to convert 2D images into 3D scenes and trying to learn projection painting. It's a fascinating business and I bet you can hardly contain yourselves whilst awaiting the results.
Enjoy the week.

  1. Very smart-looking bikes, Adrian. Tried a bit of research and can confirm the AJS 18 from 1948. Can't find the Beezer.

    Waiting with eager anticipation for your output from FSpy!

    Best wishes - - - - Richard

    1. They are Richard. I think the BSA is a B33.
      FSpy is proving a challenge. It is easy to use but not so easy to get good results.

    1. Bas, ze wisten hoe ze dingen goed moesten maken toen we werden geboren.

  3. Those bikes are pretty cool! I have no appreciation of the mechanics, I presume they still work. Someone's labour of love! Or obsession.

  4. Pauline. I imagine they work as well or better than they did when new. Probably an obsession.
