Made some good progress today, got the oil pump off, primed with fresh oil and refitted along with the sump, oil filter and oil tank and filled with oil.  Also got the carbs finally assembled ready to go back on.

Got the coils sorted and connected up and lo and behold I HAVE SPARKS :-)

Got some exhaust gaskets coming in the week so just need to get the exhaust fitted, need some carb clamps and then get those fitted and I think I will be ready to give it a kick, hopefully next weekend if time permits.

Bit more done today, got rear calliper and m/cyl off. Couple of bolts didn’t want to play ball but got them off with no damage. Once I got the seized brake linkage off I found the m/cyl isn’t seized!!

Sneaked a couple of hours tonight. Pumped some fresh fluid through the rear master cylinder, still amazed it wasn’t seized. Got the new plugs in, coils connected and fitted the exhaust stubs and exhaust. The exhaust fits perfectly and the rest mount lines up exactly with the frame mounting. Just got to fit the carbs and it’s ready to go, but unfortunately it won’t be this weekend as got family stuff to do. [ Guests cannot view attachments ]
