    Look forward to seeing them. (My first ever 'backie' on a bike was in 1978/9 on the back of Z650 b3.)

    Spray Job

    OK so I finally have the tank and panels back from the sprayer. Nice job and a massive improvement from what they were

    Going to see my engine builder Tuesday who is doing a complete rebuild and engine case's refurb So wheels and seat to the guys that are taking care of them week after next and in the not to distant future I can start to reassemble the bike to a rolling chassis which was my aim by the end of the Summer. So I think I'm on track

    Cheers Chris. I'm happy with the result and I know your only looking at pictures but it is to my untrained eye a nice job

    Looking Good

    Visit to the engine builders the other day was all positive. He was very impressed with it's condition and in fact he said it showed no signs of wear at all so all good. I am renewing the piston rings and the only thing that needed replacing was the clutch basket that had one of it's internal bolts lugs snapped off. Probably during the renewal of the clutch plates as the plates were in excellent condition. So really pleased that there was no nasty surprises waiting within

    So dropped the engine cases off today for Aqua cleaning before painting and also dropped the chrome off for re-chroming
    Wheels and seat to be sorted in a couple of weeks and then it's nearly time to start putting things back together

    If the pics are the right way that will be down to Ash who told me how. If not then sorry

    Nice...had the same swing arm problem with a Guzzi 1200 Sport. Although it was possible to cut through the pivot bolt in two places without damageing the swing arm.

    Brilliant bike.

    Great resto.

    OK so thought I would just give a quick update on how things are going. I now have a beautifully restored seat. Some shinny chrome. The engine is well on its way to being restored to a better than new condition. The wheels are currently away being sprayed and polished. Carbs have just been sent off for cleaning and polishing and the exhaust is currently going through the cleaning process before re-chroming

    So in a short period of time hopefully I will have everything sorted to start the rebuild
