It has been just over 5 years since I pushed the bike into the back of a pick-up truck and drove it home. I am getting very close to where I want to be. I am most grateful to everyone that has helped me with advice and tolerated my questions.
I made a good push this summer to get the bike together. There are a few things to do yet before it is ready to ride, but the winter snows are just around the corner so I will take my time.
The tires are original - cracked and hard, the front fender has to go - that is a PO chop. The throttle cable needs routing, and last but not least, that tank looks very naked - custom Norton badges will be cooked up this winter too.
