  1. Hi Folks, The majority of user on the forum wont know me as i dont come on the forum much, been a bit tied up working on my 72 Elan plus 2 and my other toys. I hope you all won't think I'm being a cheeky putting this post up but as it for a charity event I thought I would give it a try. Along with 3 other scots we have decided to take part in a charity cycle with 5 americans to raise money for Action For Children Scotland and for Childrens Hospice Association Scotland. The cycle takes part this June, we will be cycling from a town in Montana called Missolua down through the rockies in to Yellowstone Park and finally arriving in a town called Jackson in Wyoming, this in all is 500 miles and we plan to do this in 6 days, over the first two day we will be climbing around 6000 ft taking us up to 8,500 ft. We have set up a small site that will expand as time goes on explaining what we are doing and why, so if you want to find out more or link to our twitter feed visit www.5blokes5bikes.com On the website there is also a link to our Virgin Giving page for an of you kind people who would like to donate to the charities and show support to efforts. We are also looking for companies or individuals who would like to help us raise funds to help us take part in this challenge. It is costing just short of £2000 per person, personally and from friends we have raised the majority of the funds. But we are short of around £3,000, we are hoping there are some kind company owners or individuals who would like to donate to helping us to get to the states to take part in this cycle. If you or anybody you know would be interested in helping with this please contact me on chris@first-son.co.uk or call 07899824394. Thanks in advance for any support given. Chris

    Hi, I'm getting my Elan back from the body shop tomorrow and think it best I get the car valued for insurance purposes. Never had to do this before so need pointers. Is it down to a club representative or is the some approved bodies that do this? Does anybody know someone in Edinburgh that can do this for me? Thanks for help in advance Chris
  5. Hi, well Falkirk is not the that far away from Edinburgh so may catch you at the beginning of the trip, if not Leith is a 10 minute drive from my house sowill be easy to catchup with you all on thursday or friday. On your way to Leith you will probably pass the end of my road as you come in to Edinburgh from the West. Might want to give me a shout when your heading in to Edinburgh and I might manage to join you all for the short drive to Leith. Hope you all have a safe drive up here. Chris
  6. Hi Folks, can you let me know where and when your will be around the Edinburgh & lothians area, I'm hopefully going to have the Elan back from the coachworks and want to come say hi! I have had a lot of bother with the guys doing work to my car so not managed to get everything finished. They decide to increase the cost of my work four fold with out even mentioning. So there's been a lot of argueing
