Nice work Rab, that looks well trick.
What are you going to do with your time now ? Must be near time to sell it on, now it's complete. :grinning: lol
lol ooooh not a chance that this one gets sold, this ones going into the ground with me and if im honest with myself it will never really be finished lol.. plus iv near enough to starr building another one and iv the pegaso to keep on the road .

but im upto my neck in turning work with the lathes here. the world has went lightweight flywheel mad lol.. iv prob done 95% of every firestorm in europe running one and no sign of it slowing down anytime soon and the motox cross guys are starting to show interest in them aswell. so busy times and it pays for my spondon addiction lol

well its back on its wheels, cover your eyes if you dont do bright lol

front end changed now to run 320mm Aprilia discs on the Brembo,s with a wheel made for a yamaha.

lots of spacers and brackets made up/tidied up over the winter and the electronics all moved to the rear and rubber mounted, swingarm back in aswell, just an oil change,fit a chain and wait to get the tank painted and i think we have a wrap for this winter..

My god that's a lovely thing Rab.
Full credit, even the visible work and effort gone into that is outstanding.

its become an obsession now lol but the bike has to much history not to be brought back to life and used instead of rotting in a shed or some collector getting it to hide it away..

yes it has warts and battle scars but thats part of the attraction of this old girl for me
