Ultrarepro -

looking good! except for the lower pipes it looks just like mine. I like the looks of the high pipes myself, glad to see you switching over. If you need a 350-500 Workshop manual i am putting mine into PDF format cause I'm tired of lugging the original paper version around. I like the looks of the high pipes myself. Keep up the good work

Thanks I have a PDF version which I downloaded from somewhere or other. Let me know if you want it before you start scanning yours if that is what you are planning.

A bit more light tinkering in the garage last night:

Headlamp out, and I then stripped out the loom. I made some notes and I'm buying a new one but I'm dreading getting everything wired up on the rebuild









Battery tray out. Going to need new rubber mounts and tray liner:




And finally took a shock apart just to see whats what. Should that dust shield be polished or chromed? Is it worth powder coating the spring?



In the absence of the correct C spanner I had to tap the pre-load adjuster around to its lowest tension using a screwdriver which wasn't very satisfactory. Hmmm

Managed to steal a little bit more garage time yesterday.

As I'm planning to farm the engine out for rebuilding I want to do any cleaning up before it goes so that I dont have strip anything off and disturb gaskets etc once it has been rebuilt. So I did a bit of test polishing on the casing. It's hard to illustrate the improvement but it has come up well:

Before:



After






There is a big gouge in the casing which I guess I could have reduced with a lot of localised sanding, but I think it's kind characterful.

The rest of my time was mainly stripping off more cables, carb, chain, chain guards and other sundries. It will soon be time to remove engine and wheels which will be good landmarks but I then have to tackle the forks which I'm a bit anxious about...






I'm not really sure whether the wear on the rear sprocket is within acceptable parameters. Any thought?

A little bit more progress:

Badges tidied up, c/o some Humbrol Ivory paint -





new badge


Then engine out, bike off the bench and outside for a final degrease of the frame:






Next job is to get the wheels out and then strip swing arm off frame. Tackling the fork strip is still weighing on my mind

Finished stripping the bike a couple of weeks ago and got everything off to the powder coaters. Picked it all up on Wednesday:





I have spent a long time sloshing sand out of the oil tank with paraffin. I'm pretty sure it is all clear but I'm going to give it another couple of goes, just to make sure.

Family were all out yesterday so I made some progress on building up the frame:







Waiting for a few parts then tackling the fork rebuild will be next

Some goodies have arrived:




And I finally decided to farm out the engine rebuild to SRM as by time / confidence isn't really up to it. So that meant building a box to send it away:





And now its on its way...



Ive now rebuilt the forks with some advice from here, which was very helpful:

Getting the fork boots on was a bit of a pain. The clips were very hard to manipulate until I found a way to compress them:



Sleeve nut is horribly chewed up so I have ordered another one:



Front wheel now in:



This afternoon I thought I would finish off the side panel. Its been powder coated and my plan was to flat it down and apply the waterslide...



And then apply a coat of lacquer to provide a nice gloss finish and seal in the decal:



Well, one part of the plan worked

back to the drawing board: looks like I'm going to have to get it re-blasted, coated and lacquered, bit with the water slide on last this time...
