Another Newbie. Nr Cambs
« on: November 24, 2021, 08:05:48 AM »
Morning Guys n Gals
Just joined. Saying hi. Few months ago acquired a 1977 SOHC that had been stood in a house since 1980. Minor work to get it gleaming again. Previous owner had painted it Poo Brown but everything has been away and I pick up a fresh new deep red tank & panels on sat.


Also have a highly modified 2003 GSX1400, a 2018 Africa Twin Adventure Sport and a 70’s Puch Maxi.

Hoping to pick brains here so I can get the SOHC back to fine fettle.

You need five posts before the system marks you as “trusted” - this stops most of the spammers that get through the registration checks.

Sorry about the image size limit.
1Mb is plenty for an internet image. Anything more just clogs up the server, uses storage and slows the experience for those without lightning broadband.

Welcome by the way. I had to look up your username too

Having chosen your image, tap on “actual size”, which will allow you to choose an appropriate file size then select “use” . Repeat for each photo attachment selected.
