Well, back from my sabbatical into the world of classic bikes, I've decided to combine my passions in the form of an LE Velocette. Why? you may ask, why not? I would reply. The donor bike (see pic) is a 1955 Velocette LE, 200cc, water cooled, shaft drive. Early thoughts are custom tail/head light, struts to lower the back end, apes/flat bars, custom gauges, forwards and a s***load more. Will post up as I progress, cheers, Dave

Trumpy was sold to a guy in Melbourne, another regrettable decision, I've made a few :(

The exact opposite of what I did with my ex wives............... :cry: :cry:
