Newbie from OZ

Hi All,

New on the forum, just moved from Netherlands to OZ. Sold my bike before the move but after almost a year here the itch to build something new needed to be scratched.

A few years back I converted a 1978 KZ650 to a ******* cafe racer/80's superbike. Can't post pics yet so You'll have to wait for that!

As said, this bike is gone and having more or less settled down in Australia it is time for a new project.
The basis will be a VN800, and I try to make it a little bit different.

Hope to find some info and feedback here during the build :)
