Great job that... if i'd have known it could have looked as nice as that, i'd have kept it!

So I had an ex LGF steed hiding in the cave... I always thought it seemed to looking enviously at the hifi in the garage!

Love it Lee, hope my 2 turn out nearly as nicely.

Looking forward to hearing your comparison between the 2.

Took her for a ride in the storm on sunday and it seems a very agile ride like the 91 but I need to weigh them both and compare, it seems a lot lighter to ride,
typical I forgot the key for the wheel bolts:lol: so I still have not had chance to alter the wheelbase, maybe next time eh.
