Thank you Maritime, I'm pleased with how it turned out as well. Rides nice, but I've yet to do any mileage on it yet...and yes, it's a bit squirelly on those tyres haha! I'm sure I'll get used to it and they might settle a touch when the pimples have worn off.

Maybe only freshly washed balls ;)

I like the bag,
Would you find some more interesting superlatives if I call it a satchel?

Had a day out planned which went well until I heard/felt a knock knock from the bike when riding the dual carriageway.



Turns out to be a sprocket stud had worked itself out and was contacting the swingarm and adjuster brackets.



Fortunately, my mate has his shop just up the road, I'd come out with zero tools of course  ::), so he popped out with some spanners to help. We turned out the stud, tightened the other nuts and I rode it to his place. Stud refitted and all was well. Only an hour set back....so onwards to my biker mate.



He's just turned out this very tidy 1978 Honda 400twin cafe, it sure sounds nice on the megaphones. We blasted to a local biker cafe and met up with a HD rider/mate. Great day out with friends on our bikes.....it's what I built it for  :D





Mine had a few folk scratchin' their heads trying to work out what the hell my bikes was....haha!

I did a deal with the cafe/bike boutique owner, he sold me his last pair of enduro boots for 155 and I sold him one of my electric water heaters for 100.....very pleased I have to say.

I'll now go over the bike to check each fixing and continue with the finishing off jobs.

Thanks for checking in.
