Hi James welcome to the forum, plenty of bike people on here and you only have to ask about model engineering and there will be someone who has done it and will help.

Hello James and welcome. El Paso eh! Now there's a name familiar to us old West fans! (and it's not just the West that's old).

As David says, there are a number of bikers on here, who would be only too happy to help if you have any questions.

Hi James, welcome to the forum. Plenty of new tricks for old dogs and old tricks for young pups on here. Don't be afraid to ask or make suggestions. If you want to post a photo, the process is slightly unusual - instructions here.

Welcome along James from another British bike tinkerer. I work mainly on 1920s/1930s bikes for myself and plenty of 1950s/1960s stuff for others. When you have a lathe and mill you get a lot of friends with bikes.....

Hi James, and Welcome.

There are lots of enthusiasts on her for classic machines of various types, and a VAST range of expertise on a VAST range of subjects. Reading posts has taught me a lot; if only my memory could retain it!

If you have a problem, there will be someone who can offer advice.

The experience and advice is a two way highway.

Howard
