    Hi Ric,
    Don't be shy; show us what you've done. They are all a bunch of good guys on here.
    You should see the heap that I posted (my avatar) and nobody threw eggs at me :)
    Everyone seems to appreciate the effort as much as the the result.
    And anyway, you should first off build to please yourself. And thats the most important bit.
    (well that's what I console myself with when I see all the cool stuff on here :wink: )

    Best wishes, Kevin
    Surrey

    Hey Largek9,
    You sure are right about th scarcity of old bikes in the UK.
    I am not sure if it is all the rain rusting everything away; but I usually blame the war effort where any old metal was scrapped 'to make spitfires'.
    Then again we are a very little island not so much space to store junk :lol:

    Hi all, just sending this link to every post mentioning "Hertfordshire" I've started a vintage cycle club based in Stevenage and would love to see other members and their cruisers (and others of course) the link is: http://www.facebook.com/groups/388507374531341/
