Thank you!
Had a wee quick look over it today, a few things needing doing, gearbox breather has only a 3" tube on it so will run one up to the frame to stop area getting oily, indicators will probably go as their span is only 2 inches shorter than  the arm span of 'Christ the Redeemer' in Rio!, I might have a go at cutting them down and re-threading them. I would imagine the screen will go too, but early days yet and I'll get it to my liking!

Very nice Rob, is that the one that your mate Vmaxer gave you a load of technical advice on before you bought it?

Now remember what I keep telling you, RIDE THEM!!!!!

Very nice indeed, Personally I think the screen looks just right. I wouldn't be without one these days, anything but around the block under 40 on a naked and I get fed up up of the inspect splatter or cold wind buffeting depending upon the season.

Time will tell, but initial indications say it will be. There are a few things to do for my own peace of mind and for me to put my own stamp on it.
 
Thanks to all for your kind remarks and for your help and suggestions whilst I was looking.
 
Also a big  Hug to Kate for helping me get in touch with the seller. I have again chanced sending a Hug, as I seem to have got away with it the last time, the government didn't investigate me Tongue.
 
Tarquin, how dare you mention he who should not be mentioned!, the one who holds the distinction of being the only person to be red carded!

And isn't that the fun of it?  It looks like a cracking machine, and one which would not require a great deal of effort to put "back to standard" or in whatever variant of "back to standard" floats your personal boat!

Riding the beast is the best way to get to know what needs to be done, what has to be done, what you'd like to do, and what can be simply left alone.

Enjoy!
