Very nice. I'm glad you haven't ditched the side covers as I always think bikes look a bit odd without them.

Still don't like fat front tyres myself.....

[QUOTE=iansoady] Reminds me of that youtube video of the man hand lining Enfield tanks - just as they would have been done in Redditch in the 1950s.

Although the Indian factory looks much cleaner than the metal-bashing one shown by Pier.

I could sit and watch that all day, a true skill especially with so many people there watching him

The picture of the workshop is amazing and I for one would love to have one like that but I don`t think `HER INDOORS` would be best pleased. It`s wonderful to see such craftsmanship coming out of the chaos. At least with chaos you always know where everything is, its only when you sort out the workshop do things seem to `disappear`, or is that just me in my old age!!!!
Not sure about the flip flops though!

I went back to the shop today to check some stuff , not really related but they are doing a new project 
I was able check the exhaust pipe they were making for a BMW, not bad actually I might give it a go for the "scramblerization" of the T5( if it's a T5..) in couple of month
