Thanks guys. It's hit my missus far harder than me, she says that she's killed him, but I have to keep telling her that he was really struggling with the normal things a dog does (like stand up, go for a walk etc.). Time will heal things eventually for her I suppose.
On a lighter note, I'm sat in waiting for my parcel to be delivered, so may get a little "shed time" later

Ok, a quick update on where I'm up to at the moment.
I'm having a go at building my own seat unit just to make the bike look different. It could just be one of those "waste of money" things that I tend to do, but we'll see how it goes.
I've also bought some Argon & stainless wire for my mig welder to have a go at the Ducati exhaust, but I don't think that my welding skills are anywhere near good enough to make it look anything like. It's all a big learning curve & I like to play with these things .

I've got to applaud you for having a go at this Colin. It's not as easy as it looks.

I'm going to have to remember that for when I retire in a few years...

Yet another quick update. I'm waiting on my bearing from TWF Racing in the States, but had to chuck the forks on to see what it looks like. I'm quite liking it now I have some clip ons ordered, so waiting for those too

I watched your fibreglassing and sanding update last night Col. I have to say that is looking very good.

I'm baffled as to how it's happened. Maybe have some sort of animal living in there during the night time
