Hi Barney01,if my renovation was going to be concourse I would probably buy a original one,unfortunately there's bits of chrome need doing here and there but it's really expensive over here that's if you can find one !!!,Got a quote once for the wheelie bar on my drag bike ,4 bars about the thickness of your finger at just over 2m in length,€1200 and 6 wks to do , the paint job looks ok to a blind man on a galloping horse but at the moment I just want to get her on the road ,not ridden or fired her up yet so might not be a keeper,she's a heavy old lump for my twiggy legs !!!!
Cheers Mr B

Still the same,thought life was slow down in the Limousin but up here in the bay of Mont Saint Michel it's ground to a halt :D
