Dean’s three rules

Practical Sportsbikes (UK) - - Special Build of the Year 2018 -

Find the con­tacts who know your bike and pick their brains for ad­vice and the best places to source parts.

Be­ing able to make parts your­self helps keep a cap on costs. Get a lit­tle lathe and learn how to use it, even if only for bushes and spac­ers.

Don’t think you have to go down the time-hon­oured routes of paint or pow­der­coat for fin­ish­ing. Con­sider get­ting some of the alu­minium stuff an­odised.
