More progress today, got the horns mounted where they need to be, and mocked the headlight brackets after cutting them up and mating them to some ally clamps, threw the clock bracket on, going with N1/2 set up because it matches the harness and i've loads of clock parts to knock a nice set up, sorted the bars too with some risers off E-Bay. Rear end fettled with new light lense, indicators and number plate bracket, looks skewed in one of the pictures but it's ok. More progress the morra, i need a beer now. Andy.
Thanks Alex, it came with the bike, whoever made it did a great job, simple trim at the back and a slight bend up at the rear and it's snug, was minging, quick polish with the drill and mop and it's spot on! Andy.
Well, i stripped the bottom end i got from Italy E-Bay, last year, Guy said it's only got 5000 Kms on it, sat on my shelf for years, yeah right i thought, but bought anyway! Crank looked in great order with no play, so i drained the oil, brand new, Hmmm, pulled the clutch cover off, nice, then split the cases, pictures speak for themselves. Bit of a result, i'm one happy camper, so should get it built up this weekend with new seals etc. Onwards and upwards. Andy.
Been a while since i posted on this one, holidays and other stuff got in the way, got the barrels back from Armstrongs on the hill in Newcastle, what a delight seeing nowt has changed since i first went into their shop some 30 years ago! Had to go to 1.50mm o/s from 1.00mm due to a deep score but that's life. Chamfered ports, lovely job, recommended i run semi synth or mineral which i find a bit strange? Other parts arrived for the rebuild from Norbo and Martin at MBD, so just need to get me lazy arse in the garage and crack on! IMG_3143 by Andrew Jolly, on Flickr
