Alan and myself have been friends for a long time. But for some unknown reason lost touch some years back.
It all started with a phone call on the merits of fiberglass over molded plastic for motor bike custom work. This conversation came about due to an accident that damaged the nose cone to his bike. After a long chat Alan decided to convert his Suzi GSXR 1100 nose cone to accept a set of Honda Foxeyes.
Over the following months as I sculpted the faring to take its new head lights, Alan visited with the rest of the bike to test fit the nose cone; we became good friends. Little did I know that this would be just the start.
It is funny how things happen, one of my other friends who knew Alan got in touch recently saying he had just been in contact with him. The next thing I knew Alan had left an email.
