KEEPER



I always build bikes telling myself i am going to keep them for ever but after i've ridden them about a bit i end up selling them on and building something else. Well thats all changed.
The new mag drive still hasnt turned up from Hunt's so i stripped the top end and sorted out doing all the jobs i was saving till the end of the year. Cure the pushrod tube oil leaks, head off for new guides to the Cylinder Head Shop, fit a new rear drum/sprocket to raise the gearing, try some TT pipes, different gearbox and timing covers etc, should be back on the road for winter.
But i havent sold it !
