Hi from the English Lake District
« on: July 31, 2015, 05:36:48 AM »
Hi from a complete newbie and recent purchaser of a Myford ML7.

I've recently begun restoring British motorcycles - my current project is a Matchless G2.  I'm looking forward to tapping into the vast knowledge that obviously resides here in abundance, and I have a shed-load of naive questions lined up.

I hope not to test your patience too much.

Regards,

Richard

Many thanks for the kind welcome.

John:  Yep, the G2 is a 250cc single of 1960 vintage.  Spares are apparently not too abundant, so it seems I'm going to have to learn to use my lathe sooner rather than later.

So, if there are any expert tutors reading this and living somewhere close to Keswick; it would be great to hear from you.

Regards,

Richard
