    I notice a lack of a torque wrench and health and safety

    If you ran out of brill cream you could always use fat from the chip pan or even butter(non salted kind):D

    Lack of safety and health

    But probably a lot less accidents back then, now a days with all the pot heads WHU fans and tranys running around the last thing they are thinking about is health and safety.

    Maybe I'm just tired, but I often think I would have enjoyed growing up in that time period more than this one. Was life as insanely busy back then as it is now?!

    I wish my Touring had been put together by those skilled workers rather than the hamfisted baboon who assembled my gearbox costing me $3000 in parts and total disillusionment (that's a big word)
