    I'll never do another build of this magnitude... i did think about a cafe racer style bike, but i dont have a licence so whats the point....

    IF... (and its a big IF) i ever get the urge again it'll probably be a buggy of some sort for the boy...

    This project inspired just about everything Ive tried and the results you have achieved are stunning. so well done!

    it is really ashame what photobucket did.....I have such a low opinion of them!......

    If you have any more pics that you can repost from another source, Im sure we would love to see them...especially those I missed after the photobucket drama.....

    Thank you for the update. It is looking and sounding very nice.

    Thanks... it still needs a good mapping session though...

    I've got no idea about track exploits.. it was never built as a track toy, I do plan on doing some European tours with it eventually so maybe A stop off at the ring or Spa...

    I got asked to exhibit at the NEC mid Nov but my priorities are with the renovations (And it's the same weekend as my son's birthday) so the initial.plan is to get some shows done next year while it's still clean and go from there once it's collected a few stone chips...

    looks so good I don't think I'd drive it. I'd leave it up on the ramp to admire the carftsmanship :thumbup:
