Re: how to fit a sprocket to a rear wheel

Wondering :idea: would joining the two with a large laggy band around the rims do whatever job you’re trying to achieve.

If i remember correctly this was also the day when our backup crew had much hilarity with the Cock of the North / Penis tree plantation off the M74 :lol:
