It's looking a little better than it did when I brought it. At first I was not that keen on the colour. But now I love it!

I doubt it Paul I can't get the time off work, still got to get the mag sorted, I need a full set of cables and fit the clutch. The gearbox is waiting to go in I will go that tomorrow. I hear Tony Cooper has packed up do you know anyone else that is reliable to do the mag?

Very nice. (I do so like the sound of a big single with an open exhaust, and a means to start and steer it). Well done but we would love some more photos.

It will have a silencer that will be here today. I fitted the pipe so I could get the bracket to fit, the one that goes around the pipe to the frame. Fingers crossed the handlebars are correct when they arrive. I will try and take some better photos for you. The camera on my phone is not the best but see what I can do.

Lee, where did you hear the info re Tony? I spoke with him at the AGM and he made no mention of packing it all in so soon. I've been tring to ring him for the last couple of weeks and no reply. I'm sure we all hope he is Ok.

Cheers
