Time to clean and seal the Gilera 106 tank.



This is what the KBS cleaner has pulled out of the tank. To think I had tried to clean this before without KBS and thought it was clean.

The etcher has gone in and out. The different is amazing. Inside looks so clean. I can't believe how much old dried petrol/resin and rust has come out with the KBS cleaner and etcher.

The Road is calling...
So close to this being back on the road.
Exhaust wrapped the header.
KBS Tank lining has cured.
New small tail light fitted.
Just need to fill my petrol can up and go get some fuel for it.

Two more things to be added/changed soon.

"Pizza Cutter" - Cutting up the tar
It starts.
It goes.
1 up and 3 down on a gear shift that is on the right side makes my brain hurt.
Rode it for about 2 kms today.
Saw 35 miles per hour on the speedo.
It cuts out in top gear. Back into the shed.
So stoked that it is rid-able.
I did not take my camera or phone to record this event. D!OH.
Here is a photo of it from the other day.
