Mmm... I can't help wondering about that seat for some reason... Is that the right seat?

That's a very important question. Sadly, difficult to evaluate as the view is partly obstructed by an alien element. Very badly planned photo session.

Also, are the fuel taps the correct type for that year of production?

:O)

I've been studying that area quite a lot and I'm still not sure. The investigation continues...

A hump is definitely needed (on the seat)

Yes, a hump would be good, but it's not only the shape... the covering makes a big difference.
I really DO like leather on a seat, but don't underestimate vinyl covering, -its performance in the wet is quite superior.

I note that no-one has actually got as far as reading the writing on the bottom. No not that bottom. It says My funny Bonnie. Is that her name or is it indeed a most odd Bonnie. In fairness, it was my cynical son who pointed this out. I'm sure I would have got to the writing eventually.

I went in search of 'My Funny Bonnie' and came, (almost literally) across this one

I see what your getting at a10gf being an amatuer phographer myself there are 2 ways to improve that shot you could take 2 or3 steps to the right then recompose the shot but then the fence would maybe spoil the shot so I would suggest standing in front of the obstruction next to the fence then you could take what looks like very good landscape shot.

Yes, it can be Lace Iseo, I gues it was the same view I had a look over the phantastic landscape. But there was no nice butted chick  *roll*

This is more for running the phantasie, but in 1937 the top of BSAs advertisements.


Watch out for details *eek*
