Hi Greg

I was wondering if you had chosen a cylinder kit for the VNB?

My Reason for asking is that I'm thinking of up grading the VNB5T 125cc to a 177cc, but not sure.

Its a number matching bike and I'm a little on the fence about kitting up the original engine.

What are you thoughts?

Luke

Hi Greg,

Please use the pictures for sure.

I'll give it a go Luke, but am also lugging the club banner and other stuff over on my back - the bike I am riding doesn't have any racks.

Hi Greg, if it is not too heavy- are you able to bring with you on Sunday the 10 inch stand (recently purchased online for the Clubs fund raising)

many thanks

Luke M
