Default Good Morning from Glastonbury UK

Hello everyone.

I am Geoff (English variation of Jeff). I drive buses and live on a farm in Somerset, UK. I have a 1956 Panther, made from a basket of bits that had been in a shed for 25 years... and a JABSA - a 1927 JAP 1000cc flathead twin in a 1938 hand change BSA M20 chassis.

My current project is a v-twin Panther... a one-off engine mad from splicing 2 M120 Panthers together, sitting in a specially-made Dresda Manx frame... will post pics shortly.

Badass, Panthers are cool.

There is a project for sale near me, a '49. I have to keep ignoring it.

That's a swell website you have there. I look forward to spending more time ogling all those v-twins. Welcome.
