The bike so far paint work has been primed ready for the top coat, I'm thinking of spraying it black. I'm stuck at the moment because it's winter and a bit cold to spray outside. If I can hang on I'll wait till spring and have a go then. next job is to fit the exhaust pipes and start her up, hopefully.
Bit of a jump in progress here. The battery has been fitted and the electrics checked, had to re-wire the indicator switch on the handle bars as all the wires had fallen off, you get that on old bikes. The radiator has also been fitted. need to re-spray the right side of the radiator as its a bit dull and I'm thinking that I might leave the radiator cowling off, I'll see what it looks like off and on.
Another picture with the engine fitted. Next job was cleaning the carbs something I was not looking forward too, they were very dirty, I used degrees er and a stiff brush.
Engine has been cleaned. As you can see the side crank case has had the paint removed and the alloy polished.
My son (Aiden) and I fitted the engine. As the bike is raised off the floor it was easy to fit, but using two people saved scratching the frame.
