Sorry for the delay in posting BOTM recently. We were without internet or really slow internet for most of May/June on the ship. I'm home now for a few weeks so I'll catch up.

This months winner has some real skills thats for sure. Have a read of his thread if you haven't yet, its pretty darn interesting!



Congratulations Sugarkryptonite, your Canadian V65 Sabre Cafe project is May's Bike of the Month

Folks,

I admit that I'm not a fan of this style, prefering retorations, but the effort and quality of the work does need to be commended.

Doing it correctly earns credance in my book, and you have done well as I see it.

Congratulations on what you have done.

Now, get your father to teach you to do the machine work. It is a life skill that you'll be forever thankful for; right Dutchy?
