Well yes, it would be nice, but no, the one I am building will not be as nice as the one in the pic above. You see when this bike is complete it will be for sale so in the interests of keeping the price down for both myself and the buyer I have opted out of rechroming except for a few small bits n bolts. In favour I will rebuild the motor from ground up, do all the painting of body work, new seat and so on.
To follow this page I recommend you friend me on Facebook, I will update there regularly. My Facebook Page. My email address is also at the bottom of this page so if you have a purchase interest you may contact me that way.
In house inspection is available anytime through the build progress too.
I will just drop pictures of progress as I go along, this first slab will highlight a few of the new bits going into the build and some prelim work already done.
This page will become image heavy after a time so you may want to make coffee while page loads :)
