A refurbed crank courtesy of Chris Appleby, and some new rims. Progress is on the slow side but should be good for summer.

Nothing looks cleaner than a nice Satin Silver block surrounded by a deep gloss black frame. :)

That looks fantastic. Just one question, are you going to fit the cam chain on the crankshaft before you put the top on?

Hi chaps, yes the cam chain is on, I've also fitted new bearings whilst I've got the block split. There will also be new roller bearings, clutch plates etc. Deep joy, keeps me out of mischief .
