All looking good so far. The YSS rear shock is a thing of beauty. Looks very well made and a great price. The one removed was an old Hagon (fully knackered). I may have a little work to do on the shock linkage :lol:
May have them cleaned up and fitted this weekend.

Hi H
There wasn't a vin plate fitted, but a frame number stamped (matches my registration document). And it's still readable though the powder coating.
Plastics and tank are in good condition, so just a set of new pattern decals, the same as fitted. They are surface mount, not lacquered over.
Got family over this weekend so I'll put some time in on the bike :lol:

P.S, just taken a delivery of lots of Stainles steel nuts, bolts and washers..........lovely :tup:

Dropped off Monday morning last week, called me to collect Friday morning. Spot on really.

I've got a load of parts need cleaning now and a fair bit of painting.

A little more work done, but slow progress due to working away. And I'm away all next week :tdown: .

Just got one bolt to get lined up so I can pick up the thread to tighten up. Clearly visible in the pics.

Look at this lot. If it was all genuine parts it would have cost a fortune. Thankfully, All Balls do the kit for my bike, whoop whoop !

If only I could work as efficiently as Mr HLime

That looks super and you have gone the whole hog with the linkage bearings, nice one. I'm on the fence there about mine as they feel ok but will have a proper sconce.
Willya paint the engine and fairings? Whats next?
