Great Karma Alison, and a touching story, I'm 100% positive Videojetman will do the bike proud and look forward to hearing about its progress and final outcome all for a very worthy cause.

If Videojetman posts a list of 'wanted parts' to help complete this build I'm sure there is an abundance of parts that fellow RB'ers including myself can help out with.

:D

Jussa :)

i am attending the funeral of sue ridley tomorrow.
she passed away through cancer.
it will be a fitting tribute to arrange a ride in memory of sue ridley.
and i'm sure if i need any parts retrobikers will be glad to help.
my plans are to devote this bike to raising money.

alison, your generosity will not be forgotten.

Thanks :) I do have a bit of a connection with the MOD as, as some on here know, embarrassingly proud mum :oops: , my oldest boy is a Royal Marine.

All the best in your and your wife's coast to coast ride Jussa

I have every faith in videojetman and am pleased that this bike will see many a charity ride :) Even though he is only 8 Isaac took his choosing responsibility very seriously :)

Thanks guys.

Alison

just needs some cables & a chain.
this will be mainly used on the road.
