Bloomin Engineers! Lack of understanding of basic human physiology
Nice thought though
I was going to say 'tube set' hence the rolling (don't start on extruding, it's far too late for those kind of euphemisms!) but I was typing on my phone and just couldn't be *rsed with the aggro of trying to get the jumpy little edit window to actually go where I wanted it!
Plus which I rather foolishly sliced off the tip of my left thumb the other day whilst removing a recalcitrant bar end plug so my dexterity is currently not what it was!
As for the 'resto' aspect towards old tat we were glad to see the back off (much like the 70's as a whole...) at the time; I do
like old cars, particularly Morris Minors, but I wouldn't want one restored to just off the production line condition!
My last Moggy had a Ford 2 litre V4 under the bonnet and Wolfrace Slotmags and was Fun with a capital 'F'
I'm afraid I have the same attitude/approach to bikes, hence why you will never see any Deerhead kit on any of my bikes; it may have been brilliant at the time but so was the 'Hobby Horse...'
