Steve's Blow up thing

If you go to Twickenham on Saturday you'll see thousands of them.

Take just two of them and strap a couple of 2X2 timbers between them, then strap a Suzuki GSXR600 behind that and let it rip.

Re: Steve's Thundercat

Seemed odd, mail ordering a 90HP Outboard. But it turned up today on time, everything in the box.

Whilst the truck driver hoped I would have a fork lift,. I was hoping he'd have a tail lift. So we could rip off the carton packaging over the pallet and slide it straqight into the Rangey.

Instead it ended up out on the drive for most of the day whist, I attempted to ignore the logistical obstacle of getting inot the garage round th corner.

Then it started to rain didnt it. I was forced to lob it in the back of the range rover and manouvre it into the garage by hand. I'd left it too late to sort out anything else.

Re: Steve's Thundercat

Original seats were a bit to professional for our beach orientated use so I've looked around and found these.

60 each and made entirely of polypropolene.

Re: Steve's Thundercat

Agree seats look very good, how heavy... suppose you could always get them trimmed if you wanted too later on ?

Re: Steve's Thundercat

I can buy covers for the seats. But chose not too. I dont know the weight but washing up bowls dont weigh much.

Foot throttle on the way now,, I 'ope.

Just the steering, battery and fuel tank to do .

Re: Steve's Thunderbolt

New seats came in today.

They way about 3lbs each and seem very rigid.

Onthe bottom are 6 mounting holes and a small drain hole.

Pictures not much better than the original.
