I guess the MT600MX has a confusing life- over race events it will be thoroughly thrashed, and then taken home and be lovingly pampered 😊

Today was all about welding up a rusty exhaust, painting it, fitting it and firing up the old Army Armstrong! Before picture included of the head before we overhauled the motor!

The head doesn't look like it's been hot for a very long time. Great to see engines being brought back to life again !

Cheers Phil, I was well chuffed with new welder. I managed to weld over holes in the mid section where the headers fit by slowly extending the weld to fill the Hope! Worked a treat and probably the strongest part of the pipe now!!

' fill the Hope ! ' you sound like the snooker commentators describing players tryng ' hit and hope' tactics
