it would have been great if she'd been in a barn bigbob think shes been outside for last 3 years....
hope you are wrong about all the bolts Spendango but you are likely right. will deffo be in the market for your caliper,
tho both sidepanels are present...small mercies etc

pulled of the tanks etc and doesn't look as bad as i had feared underneath....wishful thinking Wink

not on the button but rolled her in gear. the engine is free ok Thumbup there is only 27000 miles on the clock and it looks like it could be right enough. took the oil filter out and all looked ok.
probably a supid question ,but when gettin powder coating done do they do the prep or do you get it done elsewhere (blasting etc)
the front pipe is rotten so im thinking of getting a stailess one made.

having said all that i need to get her runnin before i go much futher.. what is the startin proceedure for theses things?
i see the dcomp lever has a switch and the sidestand.

thanks for the help!!
