Thanks for the welcome's guys, I've got a fair bit of experience working on cars and bikes. I spent 10 years working as a Ford technician after I left school and have tried to keep my hand in even though I changed to a career in IT 13 years ago (god that makes me feel old!). Hopefully I'll be able to make a good contribution to the site.

Thanks, no I'm afraid not, it was purchased through a friend who owns and runs a salvage yard.
