    4 1/2 years ago ......original idea about 10 years ago
    But who's counting :D
    Been playing with my other project that's been parked for 20 years
    The good news is I finished the 125 12 volt dual range conversion and have been running it in on the other bike
    I did manage to get the right tube for the big wheel and a new rear sprocket .
    Looking forward to your next one @Pezz_gs

    Nah we haven't done much, I am going to have to see about this contract I quoted on. If I get it I will be swamped for the next 8 weeks.
