Great stuff! Thanks for your help.

Here it is a few years ago after I'd taken it off the road as my job had me all over the place with not much time on my hands.

P&M Seat and Original Wheels, Forks & Brakes (With Lockheed's tho.)

Got a lot of potential there. Mag 4 tank looks good too. Had to chop my mag 2 tank to get same look. And I wanted to be able to stare down bellmouths. :lol:

Aye up,

It came with that tank as it is, was a real bugger to get all the welds smoothed down and polished up.

I actually ran it pretty much like that from 1996. There was an article about it in the Z1OC Mag then or early '97. Between building it and laying it up it did about 25K miles. There's a subframe under the P&M Seat to take the weight of Throw-overs, which it had most of the time. LREB (Long Range Endurance Bike), as in going to the endurance races! If you stay over after races the tracks usually open up.Also Despite have the original Wheels; twisty stuff was good fun: if a corner tightened up, lean over more! Spa especially!

Only trouble was all the shit getting into the carbs and the under seat electrics from the back wheel. Hopefully that will be solved this time with a descent Hugger and all the wiggly bits are going under the tank.
