  5. So after what seems like forever I’ve dug the old girl out due to flu pandemic me and Steve agreed the bike could sit in a corner til this shit passed well....... it hasn’t so we’ve made plans for the bike to go to him to have the rims/hubs finished and fitted early February so I’ve had to make it a roller wich in turn rekindled some enthusiasm so before I knew it I’d started chopping at the seat I’ve also booked it in with my resident fab man to make a new Sub-subframe and battery box to support the RGV seat.
