Hi Malky, not sure who's kettle it is, but you're right about the old git in the Kettle Club t-shirt.......it's me :D in my happier days, before the club went all military and spoilt :(
Look, my paintwork hasn't got "Fish scales" :x they're "Dragon scales" right!!! However, after some thought, I will accept "Black Marlin" or "Swordfish", but definitely not "Haddock" or "Cod".

Not just TV Malky, local press too. 8-) Just found this photo from the Grimsby evening telegraph about 5/6 years ago.
Of all the thousands of bikes at the famous Barton bike night, the Mayor picked my kettle for the official press photograph.
I think he was drawn to the outstanding paint scheme. ;) Or maybe it was the bribe that did it. :lol:
