Feeling for you chap, it's a horrible feeling when things start going wrong. I've broken myself a few times and had to recover, so I've got an idea what the body failing might feel like. Lets hope you can keep one project to slowly tinker with though!

Have you got any photo's of them, or links to the build threads? Staying on the forum will hopefully help you live vicariously through others!

Thanx again guys.

Build threads document projects from day one and pretty well up to date -

"Trackers" > "Tangerine Dream"

"Cafe Racers" > " Vindicator"

The Vanguard Estate Hot Rod project was sold at the weekend, Scimitar GTE off to a new home, and a tentative bid on the BMW Kay Streetfighter.

I'll attempt to get all the major parts together over the next few weeks to take a group pic - however, the build threads are the best source.

I've already had a bid on the Alloy rimmed wheels [ Vindicator ] with new Grimeca 4LS front hub and matching rear from a Yamaha [ XS650 ], but once I go down the route of selleing stuff off - there's no chance the bikes will eventually get built. However, if needs must.

Seems a real shame to split the Vindicator up.
I'd like to see it finished.

Well the day is here ......... Preliminary tests done, armful of blood taken on Monday ......off to have the critical assessment later today.

Results should be back within 7 days.

Here's hoping ..............

Duplicated her for my UK pals and others who dip in from time to time

AND THE WINNER IS ....................................... TJ  ;D ;D

Guess that group hug, Prayers, and sacrificial offerings worked.

Not out of the woods - but certainly in the clearing [ just saw Red Riding Hood ]. New meds have taken effect and halted the decline [ for now anyway ] and apart from another load of daily meds and a resonable diet, etc. just down to every 6 month assessments for the forseeable.

Effectively NO further decline in function since Christmas. No guarantees of course, but looking positive after the uncertainty of the past 6 months. Prognosis is good - while I was at the hospital awaiting the assessment, I spoke to 2 others there in the same situation - but 12 months and 18 months down the road from me. Both had remained stable for that period since their initial assessments. 8)

Side effects [ condition and meds ] is in the main an irritant rather than a problem ........... a few years left in the old fart yet. ;)

I sincerely thank you one and all for your pms, phone calls, kind thoughts words and good wishes.

Beachcomber's back  :)
