Thanks guys. I still have a few small items to tidy up but Iíve put about 200 miles on it so far. I will probably repaint the tank a very dark green this winter.

I know itís pretty common but it still sucks. I had a hanging front brake and found this pitting during disassembly.

Also this torn rubber sleeve Iíll have to source. I didnít see it on any of the standard parts sites Iíve been using.
