Hello from Northampton, UK

Post  Jerry on Sun 4 Sep - 17:51

Hi everyone

Hope all are having a good weekend...Ive just joined and thought I should say hello so hello.....Im 35 live and work in Northampton and been into bikes for over 14yrs. I race motorbikes and have been doing that for 9yrs. Ive had mainly supersport bikes but always had an eye on custom and cafe racers. Im going to buy a Kawasaki Z650 and will be building a cafe racer. Just cant wait to get started....

Well , i know of a few adresses here in Belgium and The Netherlands, but i think you can score a good set across in the UK. Im not familiar with the vendors over there. I always look at local second hand sites over here.

Maybe this is something ?
