interfering with a minor and fiddling with a nsu

Got the rover v8 and jag box out of my morris minor this morning ,its now sold and going in a mates rod,now i have my 6ltr ford v8 engine to go in!,im bloody knackered ,it took me 2 hrs to get the motor and box out ,the car is on my front drive ,so everything was done outside in the cold and wet.I now have most of the parts needed for the conversion ,im just waiting for the jag powerlock axle to be delivered.Also got some astralite wheels,and inverted forks for a cafe racer im building out of a tr1 yam,Got my nsu almost ready to fire up,just the timing to set on sunday,then ill put a vid up of it running

I have been accepted ,so I'm really pleased,who would have thought a old guy in a small shed with  average  ability and tools would be accepted to something like this,I'm really pleased,I'm not a time served engineer or have much money,but i do believe i have a good imagination and good ideas  or something ?,I'm really looking forward to meeting all the great bike builders and looking at all the bikes,reading the custom mags,and looking at bikes at shows ,I'm always amazed that people find my stuff cool,looking at the talent around,i always felt a bit embarrassed ,it doesn't feel like 5 Min's since i was snotting old moped together with a old arc welder,so to anyone reading this ,thanks for inspiration and criticism good and bad
