I love this. If you’re in London go up to the Ace cafe on a british bike night and hang out and look at the old bikes that guys like this put together. It’s loads of fun. You meet all kinds of characters and see incredible bikes. There’re a lot of younger guys who are really into motorbikes and customising them these days. Maybe not so many doing full restorations but that’s understandable because it’d be tough to build a profitable business doing it. When they’re older I reckon they will be, as a back shed retirement hobby. I certainly will be. Prices on older british bikes is through the roof, even in unrestored condition because of the numbers of back shed mechanics.
