im lucky enough to have great friends in the US that help me out with being an idiot wanting to ride dumb old bikes out there.
bill and shawn and im sure a few others have pulled a blinder - i fly tomorrow and the bike ran last night - perfect timing. no doubt need a few shake down bits and pieces but thats part of the joy. bills latest battle has been with miss-matched carbs / carb linkage hitting frame - not a fun one but bill got it nailed together for me so all's good.
her we see a few of those fine foreign fellows cleaning the tank on a bike with the tank molded to the frame to bills barked orders - tanks might look pretty all smooth and molded but jobs like this become a chore...
