No, tank works actually fucked off if I remember correctly.
Not even on about all that mate, all your tanks something like fit because I pissed around modifying the shit brackets that where supplied with my tank (after a year and a half wait) and I never got a thankyou, kiss my arse or owt.

Anyone can take ages to make something, I do, but if someone emails me I do them the courtesy of letting them know I'm pissing them around.

I personally don't think they will ever make the bodywork, they wanted orders for at least 10off to make the tanks and I'd be surprised if orders for 10 sets of bodywork will ever materialise, especially when the buyers realise they have to front half the money till they decide to make a start on them.

All exactly what you whinged about when you bought yours if I remember correctly Pash, (pots and kettle smilie needed).

Picked up my tank from Holtworks today and it is a thing of great beauty. Tony and Michelle are really nice people and obviously have a massive order bank for Buell tanks as well as numerous other brands. He is currently working on a run of AJS tanks. I ordered mine in January so had to wait a little longer than anticipated but I'm happy 8-)

[quote="pash"]Why not get these guys to make you stuff like that?

It doesn't look good. I've had quite a bit of alloy work done in the past. That looks all over the place!
In fact, after just looking at some more pictures, it's shocking! I guess I missed the joke Pash :)

To be fair to Holtworks, even though I never had anything from them, this sort of thing is hand crafted, and takes time.
I had my car chassis with the fellow who made the nose cone and wings, for 18 months IIRC. His work was in demand, and he had shitloads of it. He fitted my job in, in between other jobs.
The results were outstanding, and well worth the wait.
He did answer my e-mails though.

I'll have to look harder. From a distance it looked OK.

You just want another superdream or plastic maggot, give it up Dave, you haven't got enough hair.

You f##ker. Fancy outing my list of early bikes. And as for hair I've got it in abundance. It just grows in places I can't really show in public without getting arrested. I can grow a decent woodcutter type beard but I look like granddad out of Only fools and horses or father Christmas. It puts another 10 years on me and makes me look nearly 50 ....... :coat:

Maggots are the in thing over here at the moment, they'd rather have one of them than a Guzzi lOl
