The curse of the stalled project
I now know why bikes and parts appear on ebay described with one of the following cop-outs; abandoned project, owner needs the space, lost interest, too many other projects. Project Stinger could oh-so easily have gone the same way. Once the impetus is lost on a resto it can be hard to regain the momentum, enthusiasm and drive that catalysed the initial work. Had I mislaid or lost key parts the easy option would have been to simply wimp out, cut my losses and walk away. I knew the bike was going to be a long-term WIP (work in progress) so literally everything T125 related was carefully packed away in labelled containers ready for the Great Awakening. There’s a large bare patch in attic now, those “special” boxes have been removed from under the bed and various cupboards plundered ready to recommence the job. Sometimes, just sometimes, it really does pay to be a Post-it note, box labelling, obsessive anorak!
