Lol, small world huh?!

I bought 'em off a geezer in Stockport, big into his Swedish metal of all flavours.

Did you buy the 480 from Nick Munro in Aberdeen?

No JOS ;) I bought it off another VOC member, Roge1.

Didn't know Nick lived in Aberdeen at the time or I would have met up with him! :(

Thats what I thought too, but the reg's didnt match so I just shut up. Same colour though. Same town. Both look very nice.

Ah, gets ya now!

Yeah, I couldn't believe it myself.

All that way from Manchester and he was a couple of miles up the road and I never knew.

He even said later on he wished he'd known 'cos we coulda met up.

Yeah, mine was identical to Nick's when I first got it - standard ride height, standard wheels...

Couldn't stay like that for long, nice as it was... Dark & wider wheels, more noise and lower than a badger's gnadger - that's better!! ;)
