Yes, I have done business with Ken and found him very helpful.

I found it amazing to chat to him as I was heading for the leaba (bed !) here in Ireland, and he was only having afternoon tea !

I agree with Lee,

Ken is unfailingly calm, competent and helpful even at the expense of making his wife wait while he helped a hapless idiot get back on the road.

I know the forum has sung the praises of Sue Miller over and over, and I suggest we have an equally precious gem in our Ken. He has kept the ship upright at Dave Bean Engineering since Dave's passing and we are so thankful he is there.

Cheers, Ken!!

I'm grateful for the support and knowledge that Ken and the team at DBE offer, they supplied the majority of the new parts used in the restoration of my 26R.

Keep up the great work!!
