I am putting it on plates next week so I can have a little play around on it then its time to make plans for my next project which is going to be a cracker.
As soon as its plated and Jnr has bought all his kit ,we got some quiet gravel roads local he can practice on.

My Dommie is finished and just needs starting up but right now I need to get my arse down to Germany as soon as the weather picks up to go collect my next bike. :thumbup:

Great video a stunt rider in the making perhaps?

Brought back happy memories to me of riding my first two wheeler a Yamaha 50cc automatic 3 speed gear step-thru moped on an old aerodrome and of course falling off regularly as I had no idea what to do then and even now!

Jnr made a great save on his bike today.
His bike acted up when I took it for its MOT and I suggested that it might be the coil acting up and we ordered a replacement.
As jnr was swapping the coil out he noticed that one of the brackets holding it in place on the frame had snapped off.
A bit of bodging from that box of bits you never throw away provided us with the materials to make a new bracket which he did quite well so his bike is ready for the MOT apart from the two front caliper bolts that are on order from Wemoto.
I hope the next trip to the test centre is less eventful than the last one.:thumbup:
