Just a few words to say hi and all that, my name's Steve but I've been known as Mellie for the last 25 years by just about everybody except the landlord down my local pub who just flatly refuses to call me Mellie. I've been a petrolhead since my year dot, built / modified loads of stuff over the years, but this is my first dip into military stuff. That kicked off last year when a mate of mine bought a shed of a WC52. It needed a fair amount of welding and I happen to be a fairly handy welder so got roped in. The restoration's coming along nicely. My main interest though is motorcycles, and I'm getting more and more interested in the older stuff. Current project is a 1960's Velocette Venom that I'm building practically from scratch, that's also coming along nicely. Keeping it company in the garage is a 1960ish AJS 14CS, an old KTM 'crosser with a Meriden-Triumph engine in it, and a new KTM 990 Adventure. BUT....there's a gap in the garage, and I have a yearning to fill it with a WW2 bike, hence joining the HMVF. I definitely want British, I definitely want girder forks, I'd prefer 500cc, and I'd prefer something with a little oomph. So I'm looking for a Norton 16H.....
