Just had the carbs ultra sonic cleaned and balanced. Being sat for so long not good. Tappets reset, all torque settings checked and whole bike given the once over by Ian at tech motor cycles Shrewsbury.
    She starts and idles lovely and pulls like a train.
    Sadly my knee has given up the ghost about 5 weeks ago.
    £7990 elsewhere or to member who will love her £7600.

    That’s a beauty! Whatever you can get here the yanks’ll probably pay at least half again. Not got room for it myself or the dosh I’m afraid, hmmm! Unless you’d like to do a straight swap for a ‘58 thunderbird?




    Oh non runner, did I mention that!:rolleyes:

    Wish i had the spare cash. I would be there waiting. Sorry to hear about your plight after just getting the bike all sorted. Sorry but have to say life can be so cruel.
    Good Luck
    Joe.

    Meet Angie the wife guys, not bad for a 58 year old. I do not deserve this woman, here is why. Ok apart from I’m old and fat. She wants to keep Purdey and pass her to the grand kids. We are moving house and Purdey will live in the house with us! Fuck me what did I do to deserve a woman like this.

    Yes she is sure a beautiful Lady. We don't always choose the people we fall in love with mate. We just fall. Maybe a smile or honesty or just the moment. But just look after each other the rest will fall into place. Ask her she may say she is a lucky woman as well and you were made for each other. Good luck with the move.
    God Bless.
    Joe.

    That's awesome Phil - set 'er up right in the front room and enjoy the view every day (don't think oil drippage will be a problem in this case).

    BTW would you consider adopting a 64 year old Yank and making him your 'grandson'? Just asking...
