The third and final post this evening, but perhaps the most exciting of all………..
SSBB has acquired a second blood bike! The latest acquisition is a Honda ST1300 (Pan European) and will become the groups first operational machine. The bike has cost £2000 (Which is an absolute bargain) from our neighbouring blood bike group, The Midland Freewheelers. They have sold this machine as they have been able to buy a brand new Triumph with funding support from the Lottery Fund. This is something we are looking into and the Midland Freewheelers have offered support in writing a persuasive and ultimately successful application.
As you can see from the pictures below, the bike is in superb condition, has been maintained to an excellent standard and has no known faults! Furthermore, we have saved a significant amount of money by virtue of the fact that the machine is already sporting over £500 worth of reflective decals and also has a specially designed blood box carrier already fitted to the rear.
The bike will now be checked over by the groups mechanics and then insured ready for the first blood runs scheduled for mid-November! Exciting times indeed!!!
