Does Lucy actually ever turn the wrenches?

She does. Much to most people's amazment. When we built the Defender engine I took some pics of her working cause people did not think she did anything. I will have a look for them.

No need. I only asked because you titled the thread "Lucy and Robs" new project. I cannot get my wife to even wipe the dust off her personal portion of the bike, more less do any wrenching or cleaning on it.

Maybe a little ambitious, but we will see!

r










So, been busy doing some things to this. Made some progress, although not perfect it's coming along. The plan is to get a functional machine together and go from there so the assembly is more practical than legal. Have got a cheap race kit and fitted it, cannot get original fairings and the costs are prohibitive at the moment hence no lights.
Hoping to be able to go up to Dubai at the end of January and run it at the track. Will see......
