    Lan43ktm sed "Thankyou. Will ask at transport dept to make sure. Don't want to spend too much on it if it can't go on road. Vintage rego is the same as club rego isn't it? Restrictions involved"

    yep, same same, I'm not sure of Qld details as I'm in NSW.

    Noticed a puddle of fuel under Daily Trouble tonight. . . . Where the tap threads onto the tank is weeping, it's not as though it isn't thirsty enough.

    Forks looking good Tim, will be good to see it together! Hopefully the fuel leak is also easily sorted.

    That photo doesn't show the wet and dry marks from rubbing all the rust pimples flat Dave, it'll do though and a huge improvement on the bent 31mm standard forks with their 160mm of travel.

    I've got some super duper thread sealant that has stopped some fairly serious diesel leaks before for me, it's a last resort as its also like locktite but at this stage quick fixes are important.

    Oh how I would love 160mm of travel :tb

    Think I will have about 80mm after Static sag :D

    Sag? You're measuring sag? Mine just sags!

    I reassembled my forks last night and they're sloppy, there is a collar/spacer/guide thingo in each leg which appears to be, well, jiggered is a word that comes to mind. But they go up and down and the fat tyres should absorb a few bumps I guess.

    The ultimate touring package. Fast, comfortable, reliable and all road capable - well, none of those. Just about ready to roll. IMG_2038.JPG

    20.8km/h on the bench. I can't wait to see what Reg will do when he finally gets on the road!

    Im just gobsmacked by pezz's adoption of technology!

    Went forward a bit tonight. Steering head stripped cleaned and reinstalled with shiny balls and fresh lube. And the forks reassembled and stuck back on......

    I've just come in from the shed after completing much the same. Forks are all final assembled, made up a couple spacers to hold dust seals in right position on the head stem and then packed and installed triples. Forks are back in, speedo drive unit stripped and cleaned, new front wheel bearings and all the 12v conversion bits are installed just waiting on daylight hours to start it up and test the outcome. I'm hoping for about 50w of output at 12v so I might even be able to use the headlight yet.

    And finally to balance up all this progress I did manage to pull the helicoil out of the cylinder for the exhaust flange which is just great....

    Nothing quite like a bit of balance! My progress has been balanced by discovering that the oil tank leaks..........
