Well it certainly sounds like you are keeping "at it", as they say. Hopefully Fabien will be able to capture some good images or video of you starting the Matchless. I for one would be interested to see that. Also I would have to say YES, I agree with you that you should probably calm down a little bit. So what is your plan for Saturdays gourmet dinner? Cj

Hi CJ,
The Matchless started today, we put it on starter rollers, first without spark plug and with the gasoline closed, the engine being completely new, it was necessary to circulate the oil in the engine, once the the oil appeared when it returned to the oil tank, the gasoline was opened and the ignition was switched on. The engine started without hesitation, after a short warm-up time Fabien kick started it without any problems.
Fabien made a video, I hope to post it on Sunday.
Saturday I'm organizing a dinner for 14 people, I'm going to cook a veal blanquette.
The dinner is especially intended to honor the Vanneste brothers, who were among the best sidecar crew in the world.

Thank you again to Yves for the careful work and his expertise, despite the fatigue of his condition.

I really hope that you come back to us in good shape to go for walks together.

Thanks Maestro.

Now Yves really needs to rest and take care of himself. You have seen the number of people who follow your work. It's impossible for you to leave your audience without a new Maestro! I will try to give him an Ipad so that he can occupy his mind in the hospital.
I would ask you to keep her mind occupied. And when you leave, take care of yourself and you will have the strength to stop smoking. You have had much more difficult challenges in your life.

And as Ludwig said after Rebuilt the sunbust ... I have to rebuilt the heartburst !

You are wonderful Maestro

Hi there,
Saturday evening I offered a dinner to a limited number (14) of my friends.
The good guys say that this operation is routine, I'm not quite sure.
For all intents and purposes I did like Jesus, I offered dinner, you never know.
I'm kidding of course, I have every intention of pissing you off for another ten years.

Just make sure one of them doesn't betray you!

Fare well, and heal quickly.

Dear Fabien,
I'm really sorry that I couldn't finish the Matchless on time, I hope to finish it in mid-August, but I promise you the exception.

In the motorcycle world I have never been betrayed, forced into the jet ski world or I have dealt with a few bastards.

My biggest problem is my dear Marina, no quetion of leaving her alone during my stay in the hospital, fortunately she has girlfriends who will come to live in the house and also drive her to the hospital.
Life would be very sad without friends.

Yves that looks and sounds sweet!

Best way to stop that seat vibrating… sit on it…
I have only just fully realised that yes as said it is a Rickman frame, but it is a Rickman motocross frame. Probably a MkIII.

Lots of Rickman motocross frames had these Matchless engines installed, but they had the rider sit far more forward than on this 'café racer' version....and the seat was substantial with a heavy fibreglass section, and the rear mudguard was short and there would have been no licence plate.

So really that Norton PR seat does not have much underneath it to support it.

I had received a date for my open heart operation: June 29, so next Tuesday, I prepared myself psychologically and mentally for this date.
Yesterday I received a message from the hospital that the operation was delayed until July 13, the doctor was absent on June 29!
This situation does not make me happy.

I hope my heart will hold until then
Keep you posted

That's not fun, but it did sound as if your surgeon was a man with waiting for.
Good luck, and keep the stress levels down whilst waiting.

The president of Congo, Mobutu, has had a second residence built, the problem: there is no road to go there.

Mobutu asks his minister of public works to build a road.
Minister Bamboela Caterpillar Coco builds a road, but Mobutu takes five days to reach his second residence. Mobutu is furious and kicks his minister out

Bamboela Caterpillar Junior, the new minister do a new road, Mobutu goes to his second residence in two hours, he is very happy, but he asks his new minister why this turn in the middle of the road?

My mind went running wild, wondering why he wanted to slow him down going from one place to the other...
