Oops. Poor guy. That spread round other sites a bit flipping quickly. Well quicker than his bike is going at any rate.

I would love to point the finger, but .......
Many lustrums ago I could not get my Norton 88 to start after a fast rebuild.
Spark? ok.
Leads on the right plugs? ok.
Getting fuel? ok.
Kicked it over, pushed it up and down the hill, zilch.
Finally went to clear the lockup so my dad could get his car in (reason for the fast rebuild - he was getting shirty about leaving it outside).
One set of rags clinked. Clinked? Four lovely clean, oiled pushrods!
Never forgot that!

one of my friends that makes alot of custom parts came by i told him i wanted to have my plate under the read seat

It also begs the question as to the quality (and fit) of these custom parts his friend makes:confused:

RAF mate of mine (a Nimrod captain, on CFS course at Scampton at the time) once "helped" fit a child seat to a foreign colleague who had borrowed a brand new 500 series 4 door Mercedes, just delivered from London. He took out the rear seat squab but couldn't see any attachment points. So out came the electric drill and he made some 3/8ths holes.... through the floor and also through the top of the just-refilled fuel tank. Major incident, RAF fire engines, drain pollution problems, new fuel tank needed, the works. :D

Yeah, but did yer man manage to fit the child seat to his colleague after he'd finished drilling holes in his car's fuel tank?

I think I meant "for" :O

He did have a hump, though, now you mention it. Or was that his camel?

I understand they eventually found the proper mounting points, slightly further up the rear panel....
