Did a few bits and bobs before I had to collect my granddaughter.

Seat sub frame and clock frame back on,routed rear cables pipes etc.Fitted the oil tank and expansion tank ,once the front and rear ends are sorted,the engine can go back in:).Then I just need to save for a rear shock and replacement rad ....
