    Nice one. That's a really sensible manageable project that had a good chance of finishing in glory. Enjoy.

    Thank you Brian...

    It all started with just a bare frame...no forks and from that point on I built it all myself from scratch...well chuffed...(although I haven't tried to start it yet:Eeek:)

    I have built it specially for mem sahib...:thumb:

    She wont get on the bck of the Suzuki SV650 but I wanted to take something on the back of the MH to enable us to see a bit of the countryside...

    I suggested that she may feel safer on the back of a Lammy and she went for it...

    Used to build cut downs as a kid...got two holes in my back where I popped a wheelie on one and came too far over...then fell between the legshiled supports (which weren't there)... wondered why I couldnt get off until my brother came and lifted me off...one of the supports had entered my back and then found an exit a bit further up...lol

    Lucky is the word...
