    A bit more wiring and hoses secured,went to clean the rad ready for repainting and the core is fooked,oh bugger,so thought that’s it had enough today went to push the bike back into the shed and the newly built forks felt strange then I noticed the right hand leg was leaking oil,this thing is determined not to get rebuilt......it’s a never ending pit of mula

    Got myself an ET......nearly

    Sorted a few more electrical gremlins this morning, loose coil and a poor earth,also fitted the heat shield. Went for a test ride then gave it full beans down my local dual carriageway,when I shut off it just died, then restarted within a few seconds when I pulled into a lay-by and now she’s smoking like a bastard... ah bugger you sort one problem then create another. The motor was coming out over the winter anyway,looks like it may be happening sooner than I planned Home after a slow ride home, pissed off threw her back in the naughty corner.....

    This is ace now I can't stop thinking of saving up the pennies or selling my non-suzook to fund another project, made worse by living only 15 mins away from GIA.
