Got some furniture removal guys onto it for $150. It will come down with a part load sometime. Have mentioned it (in passing) to Mandy in a 'gee I should get that for spares' kinda way

I might have a look at putting one of those bright yellow batteries in the Guzzi. May look a bit grim if I lose another side cover (probably munched by a roadside mower in the Paraparas by now). Since the Guzzi is almost a second cousin to the Beema (they were on same side briefly awhile back) I'll watch with interest how you go.

KTM almost ready to do the 42nd with the back road riders in early April.

The rehabilitation of Sir Gustave Sabastian (‘Gus’)

This, & the side of the sleepout are the most difficult portion of the house, & I didn't think I could use this scaffold in these places. I was going to hire some in. I'm impressed with this scaffolds versatility, so much so that I'm thinking about buying some. I wouldn't want to go up there on a windy day though.
I would have fixed at the top too harness not so good if the thing does topple
I pulled my battery box out and got it powder coated

I've had one of those yellow ones on Schmidt for a few years now- smaller than Gus'- never a problem starting really but I don;t have the compression of a big bike.
I like those pipes on the bluey.

They are the same as they ones I bought on ebay for Gus & discarded, except that these ones have the collector box, & someone has sourced the correct centrestand (or chopped it majorly to fit). It'll be interesting to see how they sound. With the centrestand bashplate on, I wouldn't be as concerned re grounding as I was with Gus's set up.

OK, I need to know: parts bike or fixer upper? Not least of all because I'm taking up valuable shed space (do you need a frame?).

Won't know until I get it here. If the frame is retrievable, or if I can secure a reasonable frame, then I'll look at a project.

The Bent Bike

Thought I'd throw up a couple of pics of the bent bike. Taken in Auckland. I haven't taken it off the trailer yet.

Doing a bit of clean up work prior to the RS selling. One job was to check that the bike was charging properly. I have a variety of stators. Didn't realise that there was such variance. Interesting to note the 18amp & 21amp alterantors have the same part number.



The other thing has been starting to get the bent bike ready to go into the garage. That involved stripping some stuff off the bike to allow the front wheel to turn. Found this. An HPN thermostat oil cooler filter cover. I suspect that will go on Gus.

Nice find. Subtract that one from the purchase price!
