Much too obvious - "yes really" is nothing more than a three-name anagram: "Sly Ray Lee."

I know the Ford Falcon was a weird question. It referred to the fact a distant cousin of mine lives in Devon and he is a car fan and named Steve.

As to the pics - if you have them in a website like Flickr we can advise you on how to post them.

Oh and my compliments on the Kobra you built - it is one of the best examples I have seen on here

Dave

On the subject of names. When I was in the RAF I got to the rank of Sergeant. So I became Sergeant Sargeant.
Every so often I had to do the duty of Orderly Sergeant. If anyone telephoned whom I knew then my first words were "Hello, this is Sergeant Sargeant the Orderly Sergeant"

Dave (Sargeant x3)

PS. Think I'll call ThatAmericanChap - "Fender Tweed Deluxe 5E3 1959"

No need for formality here, old chap - feel free to use the diminutive - Tweedle-D.

There you go again with the anagrams - we can all plainly see that "Sgt Major" is simply "Jagstorm" scrambled 'round a bit.

Jagstorm... odd moniker for a Cobra owner.

Yeah, that's a good name. Better than Amcbiker.

I use that name on many forums after years of being into AJS and Matchless motor bikes.

I've had one British bike in my lifetime, and that was one too many. Norton Commando 828. Dangerous beast. I swear, it tried to kill me. Sold it so I could get Married. Traded one for another, you know....

Never had a Norton. A friend of mine has got a nice cafe racer -Dommie featherbed.
I've still got my skid lid and boots etc. in case one day I get "the urge"
Got a Bonnevile tank in the shed may be put it on Fleabay. Today I put some Ford bits on there and got over 50 watchers for Atlas rear axle - better than taking to the scrapppie.

Lovely bike, the Bonneville. I'd a friend in school who rode its competitor - BSA A10. Yet another death wish with handlebars. Too old for two wheels these days; four scare me enough sometimes.

Call me Joe, Dave.

Never had that much power in any of my bikes - must be pretty scary, especially in the wet.
A relation of mine used to own a MR2 beast.
