    I did do some bike work on Saturday. I have a ttr250 that had been neglected and someone tried doing something with it at one stage. So I thought I'd try to get it to start. Step 1 was making sure the cam timing was right (did that a week ago), then step 2 was check for spark. Last week I had no spark. So I started on kill switches, but when I went to disconnect plugs, there were some dirty connectors - there's a fair amount of corrosion about the bike, been sitting a while and near the sea. A bit of WD on connectors, a bypass here or there, google wiring diagrams and finally I realise it needs a battery. Borrow a battery from the VTR, connect things back up, and we have spark!

    Now to get the carby out to take to work for an ultrasonic cleaning. It isn't going to be a pretty site...

    Been helping a friend with his 1981 BMW R100s. The head stem bearings were loose and he tightened them up (over tightened them) causing them to 'groove' the bearings and making it horrible to ride. He gave up and put into back of shed in 1998 where it has sat since. With retirement he has decided to get the 'old girl' out and put back on road. I've cleaned and resealed the carbs, new plugs and leads, repaired the battery carrier and fitted new battery but the master cylinder and calipers will have to be renewed.
    Took a while to get the old races out as they have no cut outs to be able to get a drift in. Had to make this 'pronged' punch to get them moving, then with long drift punch behind.

    I fitted up the new (old) Clutch Perch after verbally abusing Previous Owners who use all their brute strength to do up poor little M5 bolts... It took my 1/2 drive with breaker bar to get them un-done...
    Plus after looking at the pics of one of the Spada's done by @Gizziracer I bought myself a Bellypan from a CBX250 that will eventually go onto the Spada... seems I cant help myself... Pic below courtesy of Gizziracer's Garage pics.

    we stopped at a small bottle shop / shack bar near the nsw / qld border and the owner has 4 very nice bikes on display

    I am absolutely stuffed , we did just over 400kms , time for a cold one.

    Finally cut up the old CB400 frame to get the lower rail for my CB400 and the head stem will go to @Jethalter for his build...
    Then stripped the CB250 Cafe Racer.. engine will be stripped to check it and I will sell the frame off to some budding Cafe Racer builder.
    Easy way to get the engine out.. lay it on its side and lift the frame off.
    UNADJUSTEDNONRAW_thumb_1359.jpg
    Only keeping the engine and the rims (plus the tank) of it.. the front end is strange.. the forks are a little long and the top triple is a pressed metal jobby with the fork caps locating the top. Still it will go with the frame.
    UNADJUSTEDNONRAW_thumb_1361.jpg
    UNADJUSTEDNONRAW_thumb_1363.jpg
    The previous owner couldnt figure out which way is the front when fitting the cap on the fork bottom and you have to love the dodgy way they hooked up the front brake stay.

    Frame sitting on the stands for pics... ready for sale.

    So a reasonably productive day today... for a change.

    I put a little work into the neglected TTR 250, got it to start, but still needs a lot tidying. Been too busy to do much to my own bikes. But I had organised to go dirtbike riding riding. Took a couple a couple of hours to get the bikes going (had bring a second bike for another mate). Only had a few minutes before dark, but it good fun; worth the effort. I need get one bike sorted properly. I'm keen on the KX, the YZ might be too good.
