    I like it Bob re purposing nice engine lumps in classic Brit frames its getting near impossible verging on impractical to find genuine engines or even assemble from sourced parts these days.
    Purists may cough but let em i think its an awesome way to go.

    Agree you do not get a lot here for that money, if only had a couple of 40ft shipping containers and 20k to spare twenty five years ago just think what you would have made today, never mind all the stuff you would have to play on you decided to keep.

    And there was me thinking this was a sidecar from the title of the thread... Nicely done, keeps most of the good bits from the Honda too.
