    Thanks for all the nice comment along the way as this build has fought me all the way lol. I thought this might be my last personal build as a few people are now asking me to do bigger jobs so at last i can start to earn a little cash until i retire properly and get a pension, so today i went to look at some future work a full engine rebuild on a TSS 8 valve and some paintwork as well and out from under the bench appeared poss another project for me in way of payment, so it's looking like i might have another bike to build :joy:

    All of them may be a little too much, but a few of them would surely look nicer. However, now the mufflers and the lighting system are still missing. I hope these parts will cause you at least less technical difficulties than some before. ;)

    You have my heartfelt condolences. Its a bad thing to happen and a lot of us have been there. I found that when I lost my wife Claire after a while the bikes gave me something back for my free time.
    God Bless.
    Joe.

    Any chance that it can be uploaded to somewhere that a dumbklutz like me can get to see and hear it, please? Pretty please? With sprinkles and a chocolate flake on? :D

    I don't use soshalmeedya and even lost whatsapp on my coal fired phone because it's windoze! :dizzy:
