As Mr Slam is a mate, I've seen a sneaky pic of it pre-delivery, but, as fellow MMM folk are saying, am looking forward to seeing the bike in more detail!

It's coming from Suffolk. Just been told by the co-owner we have to delay delivery as van problems. A bit miffed as I was looking forward to starting this.
Here is a taster.........
