Got my tank , sidecovers and ducktail back from paint . Very good job on the finish and very good price . Now I am just waiting on the motor and the rebuild can start

Glad thats over , Flew to melbourne from toonsville . Hired a car . drove 3hrs and picked up the motor . then drove 2.5 days home over 30 hrs at the wheel . Needed a small nap after that one . Check out the valves , old mate must have bounced it off the redline a bit before it was parked in 92 . Had to swap out the 812 for an 836 , pistons would have been savable but the bores were not . Also picked up a dynatech ignition , so now I just have to put this jigsaw back together again

And the jigsaw begins . At least when it is this stripped , it is easy to do by yourself . Bit by bit and it`ll be a goer . I do have a video of the built motor but I cannot load it as the file is too big . So use your imagination and make broom , broom noises
