No problem; we're all learning here, and I am grateful for the knowledge and information imparted.

Things took an interesting turn when I worked on the bike. I removed the valves with the help of a valve-spring compression tool:





The valves were not wearing evenly; any idea what would cause this?





Started cleaning the cylinders ...



I've learnt that it is important not to mix up the left / right sides; critical to label them properly. Take things slowly is important; almost like a zen approach. Next thing I did was to clean the pistons ......... that's where it got interesting .....
