Pe­ter’s three rules

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

On a race replica, sort the fair­ing and seat out first. They dic­tate the rest of the bike.

Don’t de­vi­ate from your con­cept oth­er­wise you risk the bike end­ing up look­ing like some kind of mule.

Carry a pic­ture around with you of the bike that’s in­spired the project. You can show this to sup­pli­ers to help them un­der­stand what you’re try­ing to achieve. All too of­ten you have a con­ver­sa­tion with a spe­cial­ist, think they un­der­stand what you want, and then they de­liver you some­thing else. You can’t ar­gue with a pic­ture.
