Lol. The bike is done and running on the road. In fact, I’ve made a deal with a young man locally who wants it. So he’s been getting some tutelage whilst getting it going. And he’s making payments since he can’t dole the real dough yet  ;)

Can you treat us to some photos?

"There are some things nobody needs in this world, and a bright-red, hunch-back, warp-speed 900cc cafe racer is one of them — but I want one anyway, and on some days I actually believe I need one....
