    I bet you gave him £250 for it, as you don't really buy projects and it's not your bag......

    I paid him exactly what he asked for, I did try to get a couple of hundred quid off it but he wouldn't budge. I just couldn't walk away from it! ....... and it wasn't that cheap to be fair

    I'll get some gaitors think, if they don't look right they'll take 10 seconds with a blade to remove!

    I should have it on the road by the end of this week with a bit of luck. Pop down on your smoker next time you're about

    Its very decent, the chrome has faired well but isn't perfect, the headlight bowl being the least lovely. The front brakes were absolutely shot. I actually did 70mph on the bike with ditch water in the front brake system, and it stopped ok!
    It's having a full calliper rebuild, replacement master cylinder (as the bore is really corroded) and new pads.

    The only other casualty is the R/H inner silencer which had perforated coursing (from within) along it's lower seam. I've managed to locate a genuine Suzuki one in the same condition as the others which is on it's way to me, hopefully be here tomorrow.

    I've ordered some scotch brite wheels so I can refinish the forks back to a consistent finish as they're all patchy at the moment.

    Other than that I just need to clean the chain and she's ready to go!!
