Johnny a fabulous bike and a real credit to you, and what an amazing story. I agree about Andy spondon440 top man and Steve at tpcs also did my wheels on my lc/tz as they are original Honda rs125 magnesium wheels again a top bloke. Keep the tales coming as they make a great read and as everyone else has said your skills in fabrication are great and obviously your day to day skills have come into their own. Thanks again
No one is born hating another person because of the color of his skin, or his background, or his religion. People must learn to hate, and if they can learn to hate, they can be taught to love, for love comes more naturally to the human heart than its opposite.
All very nice Jonny but I thought you were coming in a fortnight ago
Looks very well that pal.
Really sorry about that I will call you tomorrow for a chat
May I take this opertunity to thank you for all the modifications I have asked for on all the bikes I have built as they wouldnt have worked or looked as good without your help so a Massive thanks Andy. Your a Top Man

Unfortunatley as I was running about all day, so totally forgot to get any videos
However I have got a video of Beatrice's first start up back on 25th Sepember 2019. At ther end of the dry build. I had a bit of difficulty, as forgot it was a race shift gear leaver so it took a bit of time to get it in neautral, (school boy error) !
