It will run perfectly well straight away. I have great faith in my mechanical ability. There is no possiblity of mechanical or ecological disaster....

Primary transmission on. Needs new friction plates in the clutch.
Rear brake lever that came with the bike is the wrong sort. Its for a disk brake, mine is a conical rear hub. Needs a new or pref s/h one.
Put my 93 year old father on to polishing the s/h exhaust system and shorty meggas I got off Ebay for £50 inc postage. They came up well.

Thats looking good 5T,

I just acquired a 1966 500 Speed Twin (was told it was a Tiger 100, but I don't think so) myself so looking forward to the time it gets ready for the engine to go back in.

Cheers Zunspec
