Being wired today. Just need the brakes hooking up and the paint back from the man and..................we're away.

Oh, and a bit of chrome. Just got the headers back from being ceramic coated inside and out.

Paint. Sorry for the delay. No computer for several weeks.

I've done a couple of hundred miles in a couple of days. It's fantastic to be back on it after four years. I've got the single Mikuni on it while I run it in and then I'll be fitting Jim Schmidt's Keihin 33 CRs. It pulls very hard with the running in restrictions and the front brake is bedding in and STRONG. The gearbox which is micro polished, is really slick. Fantastic. Full spec and and ride impressions to follow.
