Well I never, the mag has been lying on my desk for a week now awaiting my perusal, I oft look in to Smiths and have a quick deek, don't often buy as I subscribe to Real Classic and lately been to busy to read much (other than wallpaper hanging instructions  *sad* ), but I saw this one was featuring A's so had to have it.
Well done John , promise to read it tonight

Hi John,

Just finished reading the article. Congratulations with such a nice bike wink2
Exactly how I like 'em and hope to have mine someday. Mechanically first class, and meant to be driven a lot.

John, just read the article and it was extremly interesting , just the right mix of bike and family history coupled with hints and tips garthered from the rebuild an your experience plus some really good photo's all in all great job , plus you've got me reading CBG again which I'd left alone due to the now defunct editor who I couldn't take to best wishes BobH.
