Unfortunately my project has taken a back seat due to helping others out.
Friends of our emigrated to Australia 5 years ago, I get a message oh mike do you think you could look at our bikes and get them sorted for selling, I of coarse said yes as I love to tinker. One 2001 Honda cbr 600 , drain fuel tank, clean fuel tank , new fork seals, new lubricants and battery oh and head bearings, then a Honda rvf400 again tank emptied and cleaned , strip and clean carbs, new lubricants and fork seals. Any way got them both running and motíd and sold.
Then another mate with a royal Enfield bullet needed help, tank clean , carb clean etc etc but we canít get that one to idle so we have decided to put it back to stock as he has put an Amal carb and upgraded exhaust on it and it runs like crap.
Anyway I digress .
Thatís a shame about the front wheel , Iíll probably leave them as they are then. Iím basically wanting to go down the bobber route with it and I liked the idea of the fat fron tyre.
Iíve got a smart little electrical device which is like the motogadget m unit but a fraction of the price!. Iím looking forward to getting that far!.
I have cut the back off the frame and now looking at how to put a rear fender on and get a new solo seat sorted.
Iím really looking forward to getting back into this project of mine and any advice or ideas are more than welcomed.
