No mods planned on my T100

Plans to resurect my 79 Cm 185 with a newly found donour.

My real "plan" is to find an old outfit and ride the winter... Was hoping a Ural or Dnepr would turn up....

Top End Rebuild



Witley MCC Long Distance Trial, last Sunday used nearly as much oil as petrol, so top end off, hopefully just rebore, valve guides etc, bottom end sounds OK, but who knows ?

?

Ride.

Oh, I live in the mountains, but weather can be glorious one day and pretty henky the next.

Regardless of weather, I always try to ride New Years Day just to bring in the new year.

Given my gear, I am comfortable to about 20F.

I've just moved house so finally I'll be working out of a garage instead of struggling in a 10x8 shed,it was hard work doing maintainace & rebuilds with a XT600 & 2 fz750's in there
When the garage/man cave gets sorted I'm building up one of my FZ's with a early R1 front end & modified rear.It also needs a new motor & ancillaries,so I'm on the lookout for a bargain donor bike.
The XT600 gets used in most weather conditions..


& my other FZ750 will be getting used when the suns shining

I had planned to spend the winter riding around India on a Honda 125 avoiding both the English weather and gainful employment, but as my tenants have left my house early I have to endure riding to work in the cold and wet

The only consolation is I might be able to afford another bike in the spring and should get a few things done to my G/S.

too much for one winter

hope to get both my house and my airhead project closer to finished.
like either will ever be really finished
way too many other projects await, but at least the Pontiac flat head straight eight motor rebuild has been moved to the back of the line. It may be too far gone to salvage, but as it was my grandfathers, it will take up space for some time to come.

Glad you asked Kev.All being well I will be riding my new to me 07 Yamaha XT225 in deepest darkest Arizona.I just picked it up today and if anyone is interested it is featured on page 549 of the XT225 thread in Thumpers.

A Moto journalist did a series of articles on it when he added a bunch of aftermarket stuff to improve it,time will tell.A lot of time and effort went into the suspension,Cogent Dynamics finally got the rear suspension fixed thank you thank you,plus some new plastic.

He did ride it hard for a while but everything seems to be OK,I hope.

Bite me.
Already today it was only +4 with rain and wet snow coming in sideways. Not far north of us they have snow on the ground already.

Old faithful, the Communist flyer, will be pressed into service today, the first day of British winter time. The rest will be sedated until the end of April.

This winter?
  • ride the scabby 300 quid VFR750 I bought for a winter hack
  • finish rebuilding herself's bonnevile so it can go out of the house thus making room to bring in
  • her MV 350 which I'm supposed to be rewiring, sorting the carbs and figuring out what else needs doing
  • find a storage unit so I can empty the big shed before stormageddon blows it down
  • finding enough money to build a decent workshop
  • if there's any time or budget left, persuade the Laverda to run again
looks easy when I put it like that

I really should finish off the CL 450 project I started 2 years ago, along with riding the Timbersled.
