It's been over a year since I've updated this topic!

I was just busy riding the bike!  ;) lol!
But during the winter I've made some small changes to the bike.....

At first the tail light.
It bordered me that it was a LED and it didn't fit with the classic look of the bike.
So I replaced it with this more classic looking on.

And last but not least....

I cleaned the pistons (also new rings)


And did a cilinder head overhaul... used a spare head in case it should go wrong...


But it turned out realy good.
