Hi Steve, Thanks for the note on this.

Yes, I'm in. It's almost just around the corner for me.
As far as dates go, the only time I couldn't do is the last weekend of July. Hope that's OK.

Have new steering bearings on the TTR now (big Senior Moment while doing that).
And the starter circuit fixed as well.

All the best
Ken

I'm in Putney, so this is fairly local.

Sent a PM about a possible session.
