    Hey ! We have all been following the trials and tribulations of you bike for months now, you cant let us down now. as someone said, tie the bugger up with wire, get yerself to ASDA and buy a little electric pump, £6. bloody fantastic value, and ride the bugger down , you know it makes sense.

    Picked up all the painted parts for mine last night, they look good to me.

    It will all be put in a van ( a proper basket case) and hopefully put together (mostly) over the wee-kend. I think I'll be missing some parts but there is lots to do so at least i'll be busy.

    Is it OK if I bring my guitar for the evenings?

    Hopefully i will set off from here early friday and be with you all before lunch

    Can't wait

    Yes please !! My pal's PD Classic had a knackered starter which I helped him change, but no idea really of how to overhaul a Valeo, so will be very interested.
    Weekends looking better and better.

    bumpmucher, it has ultraseal in it already, put in by the previous owner. if the bike is ridden enough, the tyre doesn't deflate. But, leave it for a while & I can see the Blue ultraseal around the rim!

    i have an elecric pump.

    is it realistic of me to hope that this bracket could be repaired while at the weekend? i have some guilotined 16 gauge steel, but it need sto be drilled and slotted, as per the original mounting arrangement.

    Take the tyre off and wirebrush the rim? Or am I missing something? If it still leaks, spray clear lacquer on the inside of the rim, a few coats and it will seal if its porous.

    Shep, that is what I will get around to doing, although I have no tyre levers at the moment, and I've never removed a tyre before.. Oooh, spray with clear laquer, that sounds promising.

    Take the wheel with a few beers to your local tyre guy he'll whip it off and clean it up for a few scheckles, if he's cheap bung him a beer or two, it will be worth it just develop a nice working relationship

    Alternatively ride it as it is (stopping every now and then to add air as required ) and we can sort it at the wee-kend. I'll have my tyre leavers etc with me. I'll try and remember the special rim cleaning tool too

    I think I've promised to show interested persons how to plug a tyre an-all
