John is a local guy who's been buying Slabside GSXR parts off me for a few months for a bike he is restoring. He invited me to go and see the bikes he's built over the years so I went for a look yesterday. Each one has its own story and all apart from the trials AJS were built/restored by him. At least two were bought in the village pub, the green A7 in boxes for £100 ! maybe I should get out more. He has owned the '63 Bonneville for over 40 years.
 He went to the TT on the Lightning Clubman three years ago but with increasing years (he's even older than me) finds it hard to start them now so his riding is limited to an Aprillia Mille R and a Fireblade....
