Default Re: New Old guy - England

I tend to be an E-Bay trawler - saves petrol !

As well as the UK I subscribe to the German and French E-Bays.

I normally go to the Classic Bike shows at Stafford, but some of the prices there for parts is getting ridiculous. Bikes there have been ridiculous prices for the past 10 years or so !

I'm going with 2 x 1 1/2" SU's on the Cafe Creme project. Had a brief flirtation with suck through Turbo - but it didn't look "right". Still an outside possibility if I can figure out a good packaging. At least with the SU's you can get virtually all the parts new - as you can with Amal !
