End of an era... sold the dyno today. The Tuning room is now an Service and engine building area. What’s first... an old school cast iron, or a tuned 252cc?? Hmmm.... ;)

Sean doesn't know how to tidy up, that's my job... right after I've made the brews first. :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol:

I was inundated with enquiries, I was quite surprised.

I was trying to work out how long I’d had the dyno, and I think it was around 12 years? It was a good stint! Built up a lot of knowledge, contacts and friends. I enjoyed it. Just busy with other stuff now and it was gathering cobwebs...time to move onto the next chapter.

Had many scooters set up on that dyno & your service was always excellent Dan... shame to see it go & with it all those years of accumulated knowledge & data.
