Further to my last post on this thread.
We decided NOT to pursue the remains of Jims bike as it the main parts were sold. I wasnt too stressed about it as its somewhat fitting for the bike to be scattered and end up helping others get their bikes complete, Jim would have approved.

Probably best in the end. A wide sharing of his love for the bikes.

Hey guys.

I've been thinking about Jim quite a lot recently. I was just listening to his music he had sent me, a few hours ago. And now I read this, queer.
It saddens me to be reminded about such an awful time, and how corrupt our system can be. But as described earlier however, I know Jim would be happy knowing that even beyond the grave, he is still helping people get that whopper of a smile on their face when you hop on one of these bikes and roar away.
