Hi from out west in Canada

#1 PostAuthor: scotty m » Sat Apr 28, 2018 4:33 am

Hi guys, im originally from Perth Scotland now living near Vancouver Canada where it was 29 degrees yesterday wheew..
i have a large collection of vintage bikes brit and Jap and often sell some to the UK, i have 8 0r 9 Zeds and am currently restoring # 1006, also trying to return a modified 84 1100R to stock, so i usually look in the UK for parts and appreciate it when others will ship overseas and i reciprocate, the post here is as expensive and slow as yours so im used to that.. anyway, great site you have here

No PMs should work Paul’s just leisurely about getting back, I’ve been trying to get him for a week and he’s only about 100 miles from me... :D

Welcome aboard. I'm likely to be visiting relatives on Vancouver island some time this year. Would be good to come and see your collection when I'm there.
