Are they small enough to be taken into a hotel room without drawing attention to myself?
If so, I will give you a call on Tuesday evening, as I will be on another of my road trips :D

Well the German LC frame i have for this build came with one green slip that gives me an age of the first registration plus it also shows it was originally a 250 frame and was converted to a 350 engine in a 250 frame but we all know the frames are exactly the same :roll:

But it means i can put in the YPVS 350 motor with less hassles getting it registered for an age related UK plate 8-[ [-o<

Need a bit of welding on the frame then need to decide if to have it powdercoated but the frame number MUST remain clear to read

Nah im not too keen on that,it looks kinda bland compared to the UK elsie's,how about the one you dont see very often,3 stripes black/blue on white ?
How's the elsie handle with the RGV front and rear ends?
I can see the plus sides of better running gear but the frame is quite flexy where the swinger mount's and most of the RGV rear end's make the wheelbase seem extra long,is that the case or dont you notice?
