RE:New Years Day Start up and Road Run.
Graham,

Unfortunatley New Years Day here was very miserable, heavy rain with high winds all day, even the tractors looked sorry for themselves in the shed with heavy condensation on them, certainly not good for magneto reliability.

I think we could all do with insulated air conditioned sheds for our collections, it's justifying the expense and running costs which seems to be the stumbling block.

I thought you would have that nice original styled Pacemaker ready for your New Years Day test run, what is holding you up?

Today is a much better day here in Lincolnshire, still very cold but a glimmer of sunshine and some blue sky, so it was time for my late "New Years Run"

This one did not take much starting, but the operator needed a little coaxing to get him going whilst still recouperating from a bad back. This CCM Massey is beleived to be an original import to England and for many years has been in a cycle collection / museum in Devon, the last time it was out and saw the light of day was for the Massey 150th Anniversary Show at the Royal Showground, Stoneleigh in 1997, unfortunately the owner passed away and it came to my collection in the fall of 2013.

Happy New Year to all Massey Collectors.

Malcolm.
