Hi everyone, I've never ridden a motorbike on the road and don't have a license yet but my first bike project is well under way. I've come to this forum for inspiration and to share my build. I work on classic cars for a living am 30 years old and live in north Wales.

A workmate hastily offered me his 92 xj600 (which was partially in bits) for 100 quid so I shook his hand!

I've already seen some interesting looking projects on here - I'm looking forward to getting stuck in!

Ta.

Will
