Hate to be you if it scrams itself huh but then again better you than me.
It is not what you ride but that you ride that counts and no matter what you ride or even if you cannot ride we are all brothers and sisters in the wind and in spirit. http://1965t120r650.blogspot.com/

if it does i only have myself to blame and will not look to sue anyone else (american sport) i spend 99% of my time building and the rest riding , i look forwards to things going wrong and take pride in fixing them , how sad is that , i dont like the machine you are building (no surprise) but would be embaressed riding it out in case any one asked a technical Q and my reply was "i dont know as i payed somone else to do that"  but like you say its in your heart so ride your wifes scooter and enjoy it , she had that built by a nice chinese man/woman/child

What ever floats your boat I have always said.

I must admit I like time spent in the workshop probably more than riding although I do about 10000 miles a year on bikes. I'm not a trained engineer but I love the problems old bikes throw at you and the learning curve of making them good again.
If iver tha does owt for nowt alus duit for thissen

So do I and I am slowly learning.

Guaranteed  12 wins out of 12 races at wallasey, see photo
9 wins out of 9 races at Southport.   Lots more besides  and only 4 teachests full of trophies to show for it.   If you are restoring a Triumph check very carefully the nuts welded on the back of the oiltank because when they crack off the tank is only hanging on the pipes by the back footrest.
4 days is only the engine, I done the running gear. And yes that included the oil tank.
