The oil leak that made me pull the bike off the road is now greatly diminished, thanks to this forum.
Because I'm on a budget, I'm improvising as I go. The aim of this rebuild is to have a reliable daily ride that looks the part. As far as possible I go for an original look, but I have no qualms about using 12V electrics, a halogen headlight bulb, a little oil cooler and an external oil filter.
I have decided to go with all Aztec Red for the tank and front guard, and Aztec Red with a black centre strip and gold pinstriping for the rear guard. The front guard is about '69, so does not have a raised centre.
A few Pics. Cheers, Neil.
We can't always control what happens to us.
What we do about it is always up to us.
