    MERRY XMAS one and all and a fantastic HAPPY NEW YEAR !! 
                             haven't been on for a while since the missus was taken to hospital, well 267 days later she is home still a long ways to go she cant walk and still fed thru a tube in her stomach but hey ile settle for that.
                           Thanks for the support n kind words we've received this last year and soon as we get a routine you bet she gonna be kicking me into the workshop to get out of her hair haha
                                      cheers everyone x

Haha had to cut away the indent for the huge original gas cap after my attempt at welding (no pics of that mess) it might get even bigger  :-[

more pics of the latest efforts to the 550 slowly coming along and as usual updates totally in the wrong order but that's me ha
so I got an old Harley front fender got it positioned sweet welded the fixing holes then re-drilled to fit then the first hint of colour soon gonna show the finished colour scheme so keep tuned  :P oh I finally got some new rubber for it too  ;D
