What I’ve learnt

Practical Sportsbikes (UK) - - Reader Restoration -

1 Bag and tag ev­ery­thing as you strip the bike down, and take pho­tos so you check how it’s sup­posed to go back to­gether. You al­ways think you’ll re­mem­ber at the time, but you never do.

2 If you’re bid­ding on ebay and the seller is ask­ing too much for some­thing you re­ally want, wait un­til it doesn’t sell and send them an email af­ter­wards try­ing to ne­go­ti­ate a re­al­is­tic sell­ing price. You’ve got noth­ing to lose and they might de­cide to be sen­si­ble.

3 Find some­one who knows more than you! Mates, on fo­rums, what­ever. For ex­am­ple, Andy is the lo­cal parts guy at Webbs in Lin­coln and what he doesn’t know about parts isn’t worth know­ing. He’s got so much knowl­edge.
