this bike is going through more twists and turns than a barrel full of snakes. so setting out with no real fixed plan was probably a bad way to start things. oh well - i picked up a 1933 engine the other week for it so the m120 lump is being sold on to start someone else off on their panther journey. needs new engine plates making up and then i will get a gearbox in and see if things line up or not... need to have a sit-down and proper think about this thing and decide where its going
shaun sent me a great book over yesterday
