As the old song went "there ain't half some clever ba*tards".
Some are like this bloke and Mr Millyard while others struggle to check their tyre pressures. *conf*

Here's our Canadian version, Dan Smith.
He also built a supercharged Velo Roarer and an A Twin Vincent Rapide. Makes the carbs too.

I thought that Mr Millyard looked uncomfortably out-of-place in that Find it etc programme.
Strange thing is that I detest choppers but I found their Uncle Bunt build was almost attractive. I hope that it's not some mid-life crisis where I'm starting to find metalflake paint and ludicrous frame geometrics to be strangely appealing...

I doubt I'll be finding you adding me to your Buddy list any time soon then Rex? *smile* *smile*

metalflake11 I used to go round taking pics in 87-88 and 89. I must have a pick in my collection somewhere so when I get round to having a decent phone I will be able to see my computer whizz kid and get a pick up I hope, or better still find the pick take things to his house and see if he can do it for me, I will be on the case in the near future.
