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 . . . . . . . . .
