Good luck Mick...I personally love it at this stage, planning the project and setting the budget (that we all go over) and stripping it down to bare bones in readiness for mod and paint then surfing the net for a wish list... ;)

the budget dare i say is what ever it costs, considering what i do for a living i dont have to pay for a paintjob or any fabrication, so i will save a bit that way, after talking to chris sturgess from aldridge, (the man i trust to build the engine. feckin top bloke and really knows his stuff) i think i may be going along witha water cooled ts1, as a 200 casing is on order, but there may be better options, im not sure. what im looking for its lots of bottomend grunt and power through the gears, not too bothered about top speed,

this is my first build so i may be wrong with a few things but cant wait to get it under way, should be stripped and at the shot blasters at the weekend

Well the paint will be stunning Mick if the bikes Chris brings over for dyno are anything to go by.
