Progress.....

Jesus H Christ on a bicycle, these barrels are a bitch to get off    Twisted Evil

But I win, one to nothing  Cool

I've ordered a few bit's and pieces, had a new pair of side covers turn up from Suzuki  Cool  43 years on and you can still get spares from Suzuki....Rockin'!!!!  Cool

I've been spending a lot of time on the puter checking out what and what's not available, resto will be cruisier than I thought  Cool

I sent the master cylinder to New York last week to get re-sleeved, I looked locally but apparently it "too hard"  Suspect

I've imported quite a few cars from the States, obviously the Yanks don't reserve shit wiring just for their cars  Rolling Eyes



This is what came out of the tank.



All that remains of the seat base, a day in the vinegar brought it back to factory  Very Happy

 


I was happy to see this  Cool Keep in mind this turd was sitting outside for 19 years.




More pics.

Nah, won't be any swearing going on, when things start to shit me a bit I just do something else.
