    Re: hi to everyone

    hello Greg , im sure at a later time ill be asking for some pointers , but i have a lot of work to do befor i get to that point lol , at the min im just doing the easy stuff " polishing her wheels and forks " i still have to get the swinging arm out to get it sorted , then when there done engine out , to get blasted and cleaned and repainted and polished , then onto her frame , im sure this sounded like a good idea at one point lol
    thank you for the welcome

    Re: hi to everyone

    Wow, certainly getting stuck into that Bird Dave.
    Be aware the motor is bl..dy heavy when it comes to the time to remove it!
    Looks like a carbie to me, am I right?
