    Well its was bound to happen. Everything seemed to go way to well. Motor went back together without a fuss. Started and ran nicely.
    But as the old adage says "You reap what you sew" And this was never so pointed out to me today when I took the bike for a tankful full of fuel run. Til now I`d had a litre or 2 in the tank and the runs were rather sedate. Took it for a full-on rap today and found that the fuel cap does not seal well. Actually it sealed very poorly. And to top it off(and this is where the "reap what you sew" comes in) my usually good rattle can spray jobs I can do came undone in a big way. Seems the rather cheap enamel spray cans I used(I repeat Im pretty good at spray can painting) seemed to dissolve before my eyes as fuel poured out of the tank all over.
    Moral of the story.
    DONT BE A CHEAP ARSED BASTARD.
    Some sort of respray(with less cheap spray cans. LOL) is now in order

    Don't kick yourself too hard!! I've had the same thing happen with decent paint. The crappy gas, that is more chemical than gas, seems to eat just about everything it touches!! Still a very nice finished project!!

    Well tank has been resprayed. U-beauty-automotive stuff this time. And now she hits the track for the first time on Sunday for a practice session. Hopefully someone will take some pics of me making a fool of myself to share.

    they say the camera put ten pounds on you. Must take 30kph off your speed as well. Looks like Im going alot slower than I was. However I wasnt going anywhere near as fast as the gun riders. Shit they scream past at a quick rate of knots. But in my own defense the practice day was a combined category run (I`ll be in the pre `78) and even though Ive been riding bikes since I was 10 (Im 50 in Dec) it was the first time Id every been on a race track. Most load of fun you could have with ya pants on. Cant wait for the start of the new season.
    Cheers
