You know, I hadnt thought of that. About a K away from my back door is TurnTru Engineering, the company who built the Ducati powered race bikes for Burt Munro's movie, and the company owner, Noel Atley, is a client of the company I work for. These guys are the specialist precision engineers to the local Aluminium Smelter and if its made of metal and they cant make it, it cant be made. Might have to go and talk to them tomorrow and see if i get scared by thier pricing.
