That paint job is stunning man.  Very fine taste.  I like the brake callipers and the blacked out exhaust too!  I would be curious to know what a more modern, thin radiator would look like on one of these kettles.  Any idea why these ones were so thick?

Cheers

Unsure sorry mate. I do know however they where very over engineered. Think it was their way of making sure they where reliable over long distances.

New badges looking to go on with a few minor tweaks.

Carbs re built and float levels set correctly. Was leaking due to several stripped bowel screws. So helicoiled all of them.
New intake rubbers to the carbs and manifold.

Thanks interceptor

I also forgot to mention in my previous posts how I got to this stage ripping the carbs off again.

I took the bike in for a service and tyres and after it taking nearly two months the shop screwballed me and then tried to stiff me for a massive bill. Also not completing tasks required. So needless to say I scrounged up some time. Ordered new rims due to pitting and had to rebuild the carbs. (Fuel leek due to stripped bowel screws)

Today I put her back together and she turned over second kick.

New rims laced up with polished hubs and new rubber. On the bike now after the improv lift.


Shinny


Also managed to score a sweet NOS front fender for a bargain. Half what the fleabayers wanted.



Final tune up
Oil injection set up
Service/fluid top up
And we are done
