Basket case reflections
« on: 27.12. 2014 21:04 »
Slowly making progress on the RGS Spitfire pile of parts. This forum is a great help, and I'm still finding stuff on it I haven't seen before. I log in about 3 or 4 times a day to see if there's anything new I can use. Very difficult to build a bike you've never worked on, ridden, or even seen in the last 25 years from a truckload of assorted parts, but I'm having a darned good time at it. Much more fun than installing another overpriced electronic gadget on someone else's new BMW. I'm sure it'll be a good while yet, but the day I start and ride it for the first time should be positively orgasmic!

Its a very rewarding pursuit mate. I still remember the first "bang" of my '51 thirty odd years ago. I also remember the alarm going off at 2am so I could get up and phone England for parts. Wish this place was at hand back then.
Best of luck.
Cheers
