Been watching this on Retrobike too...i run my own machine shop making motorcycle parts, and everyone thinks cos its CNC its a doddle..but i started doing similar stuff to Paul...he is a craftsman, and has the inventive nature that seems lost on todays youth...i treasure guys like this, top marks here :D
