    Ah, the old "urgent gardening" ploy... yes, it's paramount to get those flower beds in order for the spring season!

    Hi all! Yes I'm still here. Garage has been 're-arranged', multiple parts have been sourced and bought (£950 and counting, not including the £400 two-into-two with balance box exhaust system I bought earlier. Eek! Don't tell the Mrs!) It does include a £160 front fender that is a direct copy of the Honda original from David Silver, not that ugly 'fit several bikes' thing that I fitted to the 200. I thought I'd splash out . . . . . . .

    Swingarm, centrestand, centre rear fender, electric board, headlamp ears have now all been painted. Pictures not taken yet but will follow soon I hope. I want to get the front forks rebuilt and on the bike so I can re-fit the engine using the rear engine bolts then attach the centrestand and use this to lever the engine up in the air, then temporarily re-fit the front wheel. Then I can drain the engine oil and set to work removing the aluminium oxide plastered all over the engine.

    That's the plan, anyway . . . . . . . . .

    Monsoon season in the UK at the moment, no gardening or biking for me.

    Still, at least I don't have to get the hose for watering the plants, like I had to do a couple of weeks ago.

    As Richard says, Monsoon season over here means no garden duties for me either at the moment. However, escort duty for shopping trips up town is on the cards unless I can disappear into the garage and lock the door . . . . . . . . !

    Vintage leather jacket turned up by post today. That took some explaining too . . . . . . .

    Ultrasonic cleaner turned up yesterday, along with a litre of fork oil and some various springs and things. I think I have most bits now.

    Except tyres, a battery and some Por 15 for the tank. Will the spending ever end I wonder? I need to get bolting stuff back on.

    Next up is an attempt at zinc-plating the chain adjusters . . . . . .
