I agree with Iron Mike. I spend more time in the garage than the house. Thanks for putting them vids up.

Enjoying these immensely Mark, thanks. If ever you wanted to put a drawing or image into the video or something like that I’d be happy to edit it for you, but watching you and Dr Dick work is great just like it is, good banter too.

Thanks Al - i was wondering if we could somehow edit and add something in.

I thought the answer was no, but sounds like maybe not...

glad to see you decided to go with the solo seat.i remember suggesting that in the black bike diaries thread.i'm still not used to the change in riding position,but it has an undeniable early '60's look.

Agreed.

I like the sprung solo, the looks and the ride. I have them on my 66CH and the 58 XL.

We uploaded a new video today, a little bit of the 59 and the seat at the end.

More to come on the 59....
