I know there not to everyone's taste but in next few months will hopefully be building one and will post pics on here.

It's either going to be a xj 600 or a cb of some kind will hopefully get it on road for next year :)

Depends how they look. I prefer the simple designs and clean lines. Some people seem to think they need to go overboard with chrome and bling.

That brings back memories. I had one for about 6 months when I was 20. Put drop down bars on it. The cylinder heads used to keep your knees nicely warm and dry in the rain.
Happiness is not a destination. It is a way of life.
