    Sad story mate, I hate these things going on. My old granddad told me to "never pay someone to do what you can, at least try to do". Lucky enough I have the time, space and patience to do just that. Glad it's coming together now OK, I think it's in good hands there. As for racing on the sand at Pendine, GO DO IT. I did it in 2016 and 2017 and they were the 2 best weekends I've spent in the car. Can't wait to get back there.
    Good luck, Ron.

    His reputation is nearly as bad as mine. [/QUOTE]

    You know you're good at what you do when you can take the **** out of yourself.
    Good luck, Ron.

    nobody ... Nail on head

    55Z ... Well yer grandad does have a point ... and I'm the only one I trust to work on my bikes. my passion is building engines, then I reconstruct the rest to go with it... currently im on with a CB250K4 that was rescued from a skip.... and was essentially junk.... hardest bit to find was a decent cam and followers ..and typically I ended up getting one from some old giffer who had a draw full in his shed, cos he races CB350's and to hop em up they use 250 heads and re-profile the cams...anyhow it's coming along OK now...mebe I'll do a few pics.

    Yup Pendine is on the cards... I've been to Bonneville and El Mirage and back in the 80's I sprinted my Zed at the Pod and Ramsey.

    Well More progress .... despite 2020 being a very odd year for everyone. I'd say I'm one of the lucky ones, cos I still have a job. And I'm spending my spare on work to get this finished, so a big thumbs up to Jim, Julie and their crew for sticking in and still producing quality.
    I was hoping it would be a nice Christmas present, but don't think I'll be allowed to make the 800 mile round trip this year with all these restrictions .... Lets hope Jan 2021 has some decent weather for a run down

    Filler cap connected to the fuel tank


    CAD ...cardbord aided design


    Dash layout



    Switches out of the way

    When Penguin started and featured there shop car as built by Home Grown Hot Rods not themselves you have to raise an eyebrow......

    Some tell everyone what they can do and others Jim at Royal Customs, Nobody etc Just get on with it and turn out top class work

    Looking great and well done with sticking at it

    IT'S NOT GETTING WHAT YOU WANT...IT'S WANTING WHAT YOUVE GOT
