    After quite some time away, due to trying to rest, i've been doing loads of staring, and some building! :) totally addicted to this forum, some amazing bikes on here. So, my first build was a Briggs engined affair, but i have a Villiers for this one, and now i have a tube bender, a nice old Hilmor, so what do you think so far?

    Indeed it is a great start!. I really love the Villiers motors in the vintage frames & feel I'm not alone...

    It's a thing of beauty and a joy forever! Slender is a very good thing.

    Loving the less is more vibe! Is the tank metal or grp?
    You sure your exhaust is stubby enough?! Bet it brrraps loud enough so folks don't have to worry about hearing you coming.

    She’s going to shooting out flames! One thing as I get older I like the quit rumble over the loud header. But love the short header look.

    I agree, that short pipe really looks good. It reminds me of the exhaust on an old bi-plane !
