'just bolt on'...…….that's a dream I have then I wake up to the reality.

Anyhow, ignoring the engine, my first step is to get a new VIN PLATE.

any suggestions?

They sell them on ebay but you don't need one as long as the original stampings are on the head stock.

Hi,

so I thought I put the bronze/brass bushes in the swing arm (I did soak them in oil for 3 days, not sure is if it makes a difference?).
I then slid the hollow tube in by hand, tight fit so great.
I then cleaned the swing arm bolt and I thought I try it in the swing arm tube for any play, damn thing gets stuck. I think the swing arm tube is bent???????? Is that possible. You cane see by the pictures that from one side the bolt goes through quite away before binding, the other bonds straight away!
It's not the original one and cant put my hand on the one I removed yet, as soon as I will, i'll try it.

PS, is the bolt zinc plated?

Hmmm, I recall a comment 'just bolt it all on now!

There are only 2 possible reasons the bolt wont go through there
1 bent bolt
2 debris in hole

From your description it is most likely 2

found the original tube and the bolt fits fine.

Must be the second hand tube I bought.

Is the bolt zinc plated?

Rear swing arm bushes in, new grease nipple, just need the swing arm bolt re zinced to be completed.

I have 3 spare nipples (no laughing) if any body wants them
