Am I missing something here? I thought you were doing an engine swap, why is the back wheel removed and what you been doing for two days

Or is it being used as an excuse to do loads of other stuff you haven't got around to as well ?

Cheers Mark.

YChris stripped my bike down in less than a day, it vanished before my eyes. Apart from the really ceased stuff that took days to hammer into shape!!

what none of the guys know is that there was no nice birdy to make all your cups of tea, and, you had to go make them all yourself, thus it took longer than expected!!!
