Hi and welcome, nice bike.

There is a wealth of information on here and if it's not already there, you will generally get a sensible and timely reply from somebody, for any questions you have.

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

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?

Wheels are looking great, keep it up, worth the effort I think.

As for pictures, the more the merrier.
