Hi from Sydney, Aus

Hey guys,
Basically I'm in second year university and have suddenly had an interest in restoring my late fathers 69' Trophy 650 which has been sitting in the shed for 10 years in pieces. It seems like such a waste and i would love to get it back together and restored. My mechanical knowledge is very limited although I have purchased the Low Bro Customs 650 rebuild DVD and have the workshop manual on hand. I don't really see this as being an issue and I am willing to put a lot of research and time into doing it properly.
I have had quite a bit of experience with cars, mostly electrical with stereo installations and enjoy taking on projects. While I currently live in sydney in university accommodation I will be unable to do anything but plan of taking the year to get my knowledge up to scratch so when i do take it on I know exactly what I'm doing.
Anyway I hope to get to know you guys a lot better over the next few months

Might just do that... I think when i move out of uni accommodation into a house next year it'll be better. I'll be able to bring the bike up and work on it from sydney. It'll be handy knowing those guys as well as I'm sure they have the tools that I don't really want to have to buy.
