Welcome Jim. I too an am..............Oh, yeah, right,

OK, welcome to this forum about cafe racers, bit quiet on here at the mo, can only hope that's because the great and the good are busy in sheds/garages/front rooms worldwide getting ready for the warmer weather.

Keep us up to date with your build, hopefully we can get a Scottish contingent going and actually all meet at some point. Cheers, Paul
