Bonnielad, nice job, one bit of advice, I used the same front guard, bloody useless in mud and rain, it all comes back in your face! I reverted back to stock guard.

Conversion complete. Looking forward to getting down and dirty
Nice.

Why has it got a union flag on it ?

It's not British.

In preparation for an MOT next week, it's just had a good service with new filters, oil cam belt & plug. Valves needed a small adjustment. Neutral cable had decided to to go hard & snap while taking out the filter cover, and the trouser guard had shook loose. Those that know of my carb blowing off to and from the big meet, despite fitting a new inlet rubber, that has now been changed again for some blue silicone hose, and the Rear of the carb supported with some cable ties to tank fixing bolt bracket, to stop it tilting. Black & yellow plate re-fitted. Looking very smart and soldier like.

A dog born in a stable still ain't a horse.

I changed the exhaust over for a quiet one while getting the loud one welded up, I snapped it while practicing wheelies.
