Ralph’s three rules

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

Try and do as much of a build as you can. You’ll pick up new skills , and save your­self a few quid. If it re­ally isn’t pos­si­ble, then you can tap into the skills/knowl­edge of a spe­cial­ist.

If If you do need to farm out cer­tain parts of a project out to spe­cial­ists, be re­al­is­tic about how long they will take. It’s of­ten a lot longer than you first an­tic­i­pate…

Mea­sure once, mea­sure twice, then mea­sure again. If you’re fab­ri­cat­ing parts, or mat­ing one to another, fit is ab­so­lutely crit­i­cal. “That’ll do”, sim­ply won’t do.
