Rivetted 3.5B wheels...... I've got an old one in my garage here. A bit doggy and well used - like all of my old girlfriends! Are they rare or valuable? Absolutely no value to me

Maybe someone who knows him should call him and warn about his wheels...just a thought as he
still has time to deal with it.

I've watched the Mk1 Mini vid a couple of times, i think it's his infectious enthusiasm that's such a captivating watch.

He's got a decent racing history behind him as well and that shows the way he pedals the Mk1 down the lanes.

Just watched all the videos on rebuilding/remanufacturing the prototype 2 cylinder mini engine. Fantastic watch! He doesn’t give a rats arse, these people are a rare breed.

Bit of thread revival.

It looks like Ivan had a bit of a falling out with the bloke who was doing his videos. Fortunately for those that enjoy his entertaining ramblings, he has started an new channel on the Youtube called Shed Racing
