    Hello all, new member in England

    Have just joined as a full member, put down my deposit booking the production slot on a Listerbell on Christmas Eve having harangued Craig to meet me, Now working on amassing X19 parts and getting a 156/166 for the engine. I have a long wait though 6 months so hopefully plenty of time to sort things out. Think this forum is going to be pretty invaluable as it doesn't come with an instruction book and I am no engineer. I am however in the fortunate position of living at Lincoln which is 30 minutes drive from The Listerbell Premises.
    All the best to you all
    Rob

    Re: Hello all, new member in England

    Hi, Thanks for that, haven't fully decided yet what am going to do, certainly a Stradale interior, possibly with a Group 4 wide arch body, although may go round arch need to see a few more cars yet, difficult thing for me I think is color, again not sure, going back to see Craig late Jan as he has a car (wide arch) coming in for body fit, hoping to take a look at that and get a bit more idea. Any help I can get would be much appreciated.

    Hi Rob Welcome to the Club,

    Your welcome to come and have a look at my LB if you like I'm about an hour from you maybe a bit more depending where in Lincoln you are (Me Nuneaton).
    You will be surprised how quickly time will go and we can all point you in the direction of parts, some of the guys on here have the 6th sense and can find bits that you have looked for for ages in a few hours. (Years ago we would have burned them for such witchcraft!)

    Will you be getting your kit all in one go or in bits as you need them? there is a good thread on here in the ListerBell section I think that shows you some of the bits you will receive.

    I like you have no Engineering experiance just tinkering time, but folk here will always offer advice and a "Way" to do it.
    There are not many Stradale cars on the road, if you have one of those you may well be one of the first LB customers to have one?

    Ian

    Welcome to the club Rob, there are quite a few owners not too far away from you, ducattiman, sando, bernard, strat24v and myself being the closest 5.

    I'm sure you will be very happy with your choice of kit & you have time in the 6 month wait to collect together some of the parts & find a suitable engine.

    Rob

    Welcome, there is no need to be concerned about any perceived lack of knowledge - the forum can answer most questions. I was in the same boat as you when I ordered my kit from Craig and I am now at the stage of collecting my body at the end of the month.

    In a word...no. Hoping to complete the wiring before it goes to Craigs. It has got 4 wheels though!
