Just imagine how many cabinets it would take to display 32,000 shovels. Oooh, that would take some doing that would. Lot to be said for spark plug g...

Good to get all the nitpiky stuff out of the way early, so when you get worn down by it all, you can do the exciting stuff like the engine and body paint et...

I'll give you a call after work some night when I get home early enough. The other thing to make sure is that you have a set of spokes that are made to use with your old original rims, and are not made to use with a modern double-crossover rim.

any experience with spokes haven a real head f... at the moment Just did my front wheel a while ago.

Mate, putting a sidecar on a Duke is like putting a WLA Harley engine in a Norton Featherbed frame isn't it? :mrgreen:
