Bit more achieved today, gotta get cracking, first race is one month away!
These are the swing arm bearing numbers if you need some

Made another special tool to install

So I bench assembled the swingarm bibs and bobs, sourced another brake backing plate to replace the broken one, made up new chain rollers and replaced bolts as necessary, all assembled with a liberal dollop of Loctite

New front brake cable turned up yesterday, expensive but had to have it and its genuine NOS!

So slipped it back in its spot, had to repair the frame where it had slop from a loose swingarm pivot bolt

New gear lever!

New grips and lever assemblies!

Even had time to put on a race plate with my racing number for this year My choice of number, I'm a Mopar tragic, with two 318 powered hot rods in the shed!

I am now getting a crash course in De Carbon shock rebuilding
Took a while to figure out how to get the first circlip out , then it all happened nice! Just going to refill with fresh oil and hit em with 150 psi of nitrogen
I live more in 5 minutes on my motorcycle than some people live in a lifetime...............
Where are my pants? Our farmers thank you!
