A little bit about me

Suzuki GT250 restoration project

Like most young lads in the 70's I had riden off road before getting my first road legal moped at 16 which was a Honda SS50 and then a year later I graduated to a Suzuki GT250 which was a bit tatty to be honest.

 

So at 17 years old (1980) I started my first real project strip down of the Suzuki and I didn't have a clue what I was doing but I thought the only way to learn was to have a go so I took my time and labeled every nut and bolt and after around a month of cleaning, polishing & painting she was back on the road looking (in my opinion) 100% better :)                   (This is the only surviving picture)

These are some of my restorations, when I got them they were in a terrible state.

I have built, customised, restored & riden most makes and models of motorcycles over the past 40+ years but now most of my time is spent building wheels for other peoples projects and I am happy doing that.

Although I no longer restore motorcycles as I really don't have the time I still enjoy riding around the great Yorkshire countryside when ever I get the chance.

Cheers, Dave.
