Same as the first, trying to reassemble several boxes of parts into something resembling a motorcycle.

I was going to rebuild the top end of my 550 but I was going to get the barrels and head blasted.

Expect the blasters will be shut now.

Yeah, much the same for me,  given we will go 100% online again I  will compress the week for an extra clear day.

The BIL is sending his 81 Kawasaki Z400j up to me. Plan is to strip it down, give a good clean, fit the calipers and brake lines, clean the carbs (again!) and get it running.
I had planned to finish the Triton but can't get any machining work done now.

I'm awaiting delivery of a set of front & rear wheel hubs I've bought on e-bay  for the 400/4.

I wonder if a trip to Central Wheel Components could be classed as an essential journey assuming of course that they are open for business next week.
