With all the excitement of the Custom Bike Show, I thought I would do a quick update on the Richard II Bike. As this is essentially a re-assembly of a an existing bike (with a new engine) its going quite smoothly. Paint will be ready by 7th March and so within a few weeks it should all be ready to test. I need to sort out some admin for it, like getting the SORN removed, and a new Tax disc (free as the bike is 1971), and getting the V5 changed to reflect the new colour and engine - then the small matter of insurance, which is painful as unless they can tick a box on a computer saying that it is a specific model - then computer does not compute. Anyway here are some Hipstamatics of the bike so far.
