    Went for a little 1,085Km drive to central Queensland to pick up my next project. Has not been started for about five years and apart from some home made bits is fairly unmolested, just neglect and weather damage. This one has higher bars and proper seat than the MC-19 that I sold last week so I may be able to ride this one for more than an hour. :D

    I wonder if Kiffsta's magic windscreen polish would work on this one?

    Seems to have adjustment knobs on top of forks.

    Look at this piece of engineering. I thought somebody had spent a bit of time with aluminium, but it looks more like some house guttering and Tek screws.

    I might be able to rework this leftover bit from my VT to fit.

    Going to need a hose to evict the mud wasps.

    This one is going to need a full strip down and rebuild. The paint I may be able to touch up with the airbrush and clear coat. It has clean oil in the sump but it smells of stale petrol. The tank will need a liner. Seat to be recovered, forks rechromed and the front guard should be white. Lots to do and no rush to do it in.

    Unbelieveable, David Silver Spares in Pomland has 4 tail pieces in stock, red, black and two white like I need. I thought it was going to be THE hard to get bit that would be a problem. Sometimes you can just look in the right place. :dance2:

    There is David Silver Spares in the US as well.. sometimes has different stock to the UK. Not sure if shipping is any better from one or the other.
