Sat the motor together to make sure nothing else was needed, wasnt going to be a simple one. bottom end definitely needs shimming a lot of lateral movement

Looks like this one sat on the beach for a bit too long  :o

Nice find on the tires!

Also fair warning that aluminum will oxidise pretty quickly even with a good polish, which is why I choose to paint.
Thanks mate I was thinking of a good clean and seal it to prevent oxidisation. I hope

And the frame has some paint, the rest will have paint this week as well and decals on and cleared over. decals for this model were an issue, i could only find one person selling what is advertised as exact match waited three weeks to get them to find the font is different and the size is wrong. The good lad at atcheaven made a nice set for the guards and a local guy took the tank for the tank decals. I now have the correct decals with an exact match to colour, font and size so a win in the end.

Indeed they were mate. And to be in that condition is unbelievable myself and the owner are pumped to get them

Yeah I did have to ask him if heís sure and the answer was yep buy them. People are paying pretty high prices for these tires especially if they hold air. Iíve seen people buy dry rotted ones for a couple hundred each.
