 Hello Everyone,
  Just a Christmas update. I have been painting my son's house, hence the time with no pictures.
  I've fitted the UFM (Upper Frame Member) and the Head clips. The timing cover and kickstart cover are back from the polishers and I've only lightly fitted them to view,
  Well that's it for this year.
  have a Happy one and I'll catch up next year.
   Cheers

    Hello Buzz,
  Those bikes are not mine but a friend. He restores bikes and does a great job. He's doing a BSA with a 850 Nourish engine. Looking very neat. Also he's doing a 1926 Douglas for another mate. If anyone's interested , let me know and i'll get some pictures next time I'm there.
  Cheers

I need eye bleach. I will never be able to unsee that Vincent chopper. Why would someone do this? Seriously? Header tape. On a Vincent. Shudder. WTF?
