"Are bikes so nice as all that?" asked the mole, shyly...

"Nice? They're the only thing," said the Water Rat Solemnly, as he leaned forward on the handlebars. "Believe me, my young friend, there is nothing -- absolutely nothing -- half so much worth doing as simply messing about with bikes."

I've used them in the 80's on a triumph motor and they did a good job. I'll check with them thanks

A65's are fairly simple except for getting the timing side crank bush set up correctly. If the shop looks at you with a blank stare when you ask them how they do this, run don't walk away. Big D is first rate, had them turn the crank and bore the cylinders on my Trident last year. Recommend "Building Budget Brits" by Mike Brown for a good discussion of A65 quirks and how to deal with them. Usually available on Amazon for around 20 bucks.

Everything will be alright in the end. If its not alright, its not the end.
