Thank you Ray. I'd like to be able to join the ranks of the retired old motorcycle fanatics but I need an income as well as my wife's Council pension otherwise I don't have sufficient funds to do a proper job! Not without severely annoying the wife anyway by not leaving enough money for food!Good luck with your new project. Are you permanently joining the ranks of us slacker retirees then?
Tyres (Tires, sorry!) are £120 plus, fork stanchions need re-chroming (£200 plus), sprockets and chain £60 at least and that's just for starters! Overhaul kit for the brake master cylinder, two sets of front brake pads, who knows what condition the rear drum is in. You see my predicament? I need another job, pronto!
Or rob a bank . . . . . . . ?
