The wheels have now been rebuilt and are at my local tyre place waiting for a pair of Avons to arrive. Not sure how I'm going to fit them back on the bike, as its sitting so low on its trolly, and there's no room for a lift. But I'm sure I'll work it out.
The next job is to repair and slightly modify the wiring harness, as I need to fit different switchgear. Even those I have spare from the F2 are different from the B..
Fitted new indicator stems, as the originals were rusty, while the rear indicator bodies were worse than I thought, so will order new ones.
With low bars fitted, also fitted the clutch and brake controls, the latter is from a Ducati 600SS to match the front 4 pot Brembo. Pity its lever is black, will have to remove the black coating so it matches the original clutch lever.
I've ordered a pair of cheapish YSS rear shocks, but at 340mm should give a tiny bit more ground clearance, than the standard length shocks.
Finally, I've decided the Kirker exhaust is too rusty to go back on the bike, I had originally wanted to have it ceramically coated. But the down pipes are welded to the collector box, so accessing all the rust in that area would be difficult is not impossible. I did consider cutting the pipes off at the collector box, then welding stubs to the collector so the pipes would be a slide fit onto them... but it all was looking expensive and tricky to do in such a small area, so binned the idea.
Therefore, I need a new exhaust. I like the look of a Marving 4-1, but was put off by tales of very poor chrome. The obvious answer is a stainless Delkevic system, of the two options, I suspect the one with the larger silencer will work better, while the one that looks like an old Alfa 4-1 will be lighter and perhaps a little better looking.
Anyone have experience of either?
