    Looks pretty good. I bought the first model XS750D new in August 1977 and did 55,000 trouble free Km's before trading it with my cousin in 1980. Went Ducati Pantah then.

    Well, I got hijacked by my father Saturday, so I got nothing done on bikes for the weekend, but...
    Another project gone. Sold the YZ 250 project bike. I think that means I've sold more bikes this year than last year. And I haven't bought any bikes, yet! Nearly bought a ZX-6R yesterday, but we are still negotiating. I'm hoping they don't reply and I don't buy it. Went riding the VTR yesterday; it is a cool bike, and I have a few cool bikes, so now I need reduce the number of cool bikes down. I think the 650 is going: it's not a cool bike, and looking a bit sad. But there's a fair bit of work in some of my keeper bikes, like the TC185 and there's work in the other YZ 250 to be sold. I don't have the time for them all. Woe is me.

    Dropped off my R6 at RB Racing to get tuned... as punishment the bandit refused to start, it must have been jealous of the attention. Removed and cleaned the plugs, jump starter, no go, badly flooded.

    In the end the old push start got it going, took it for a ride to clear it out, fuel smelled bad... fresh tank of 91 tomorrow.

    Hi to everyone...i'm still busy with the new house...tomorrow I'll send the damage parts to a fairing repair specialist...and after viewing them he tell me about the cost...the upper cowl is deformed where it is broke, and the part was repaired several times... yes, now i have my beatiful chinese fairings, but i'm feeling bad every day when i see the broken cowl...
    The good news are that i finally found a pair of original rotors (from UK) in good conditions...and also a pair of air intake tubes...

    So it's not your china fairing's that got damaged ?
    If it was some seller's on ebay will sell a single part of the china kit's
    eg; 1989 1990 ZXR250 front upper fairing
    You would need to send them picture's of your's so they can match the paint and stripe's etc

    After having the accident, i bought the complete china fairing kit for my bike, and i'm satisfied for the price i spent...but the problem with chinese fairing is when you try to combined them with the original ones...

    My suggestion would be to put the originals in storage and just use a matching full set.

    I did a little laundry

    Then some welding
    IMG_20200125_194551.jpg
    And other bike bike repairs. Today we go riding! Well, I have 3 tyres to repair on the way, then riding! I'm one of 4 brothers (no sisters), and 3 of us are going riding today for a birthday. That's if it isn't pouring rain...

    Had some more laundry to do...
    IMG_20200126_170630.jpg
    Hard to see in that picture, but we found the muddiest place to ride: tacky, greasy mud and water puddles. A lot of sideways action, could hardly ride, even got the Lancer bogged. But we had a bit of fun. Washed the bikes once home, hit them with the pressure washer: never seen them so clean! The white bike is white and green bike is green!!

    Mud must be great detergent.
