    I’d be giving BSL a call pronto if you’re keen. They were taking names/payment on the spot but there could be some left.

    I’m collecting mine this Friday. Will unbolt the ‘arm’ and strap it to my motorbike trailer.

    It’ll most likely end up being a bench seat next to the pool table down at our factory.

    Anyone who was at the auction recall who bought BB1 number 6? That’s the chair Little Miss Fartypants had her first (and our last) ride on.

    Quick update on BB2 #61

    Finally found the time/motivation to get it off the trailer and strip it. Plan is to scrub the slats clean, new hardware, new rubber stoppers, and fab up a base frame.

    The original extruded slats have held up pretty well considering the chairs were stored outside since BB2 was pulled. At some point later on, the BB1 chairs were refurbed with a plain black slat. Interestingly they went to full-length slats instead of the old 'split' setup.

    We’ve been debating whether to include the top arm. It’s ******* heavy, and changes the frame requirements massively. I think we’ll leave it off, but will bolt the sandwich plates and ID plate back on. Will be on braked castor wheels.

    Progress.

    This is coming up rather well. Top of each leg is angle, which bolts to bottom/side of the rail via nutserts.

    Keeping the top arm is nice. Even if you never plan to hang it from a tree, verandah or frame, the top arm unmistakably identifies BB2.61 as a chairlift chair and not just a generic garden ornament. :cheers:

    To use the top arm you really need to bolt the whole rig down as they’ve done with the BB1 chair at Grimus - it’s bloody heavy and acts as a massive lever.

    Once the little metal brand/number plate is back on top it’ll look ace.
