Lol eww sarky :angel: :clap:

Dent, a sizeable enough one.

Image
20 quid chinesium kit.

Image
Use the hot glue gun to stick the wee pucks

Image
And slide hammer em out.

Image
Took the major dent out. Now left with the central dip.

Image
Skinnier one hopefully do the trick.

Image
Used a fair few chasing small dips and used a small nylon hammer to lower any raised peaks. Quite fun actully :)

Image

Image
The barest ripple left and I am very happy with that. Particularly so as I was the dumbass who made the dent :roll: .

Hi,
Very neat job mate,well done.
I don’t believe current bikes could cope with that type of repair work!
Those 80s bikes were finished very well. Keep at it.

With the Xmas dust settling I disappeared into the garage for day and had at it.

Decided to coat the frame because, well because... :tup:

Both bloody bolts sheared
Image

Image

Image

Image

Image
Welded nuts on and one worked but cut the other off and welded in a new bit as it was totally fused, convoluted but sorted.

Image
Took my time with the header bolts and glad I did as threads show stress!

Image
New hardware for the stand.

Image
Pulled the carbs, pretty ropey dirty.

Image
Handy box!

Image

Image
Wear.
Circlip was not present on one and the middle notch shows weird wear. New needles and emulsion tubes so. With 66k kms I suppose that's honest wear, except the circlip that's weird af. Seems the plastic washer may have been gripping the needle as its bore is distorted.

Image
Stock jetting.
Floats were off, they were not parallel when the tab touched. Bent them down and are now parallel so I guess they were rich previously.

Image
Best practice is to split them as the seals in the T Union can take a hiding but I use 60 degree water, soap and vinegar for a half hr so it shouldn't stress em.

Image

Image
Rinsed with warm water and blew them out with an airline. Really happy with that ultrasonic cleaner. Great results with it.
