Slow progress..... But at least some progress..... :wink:
Forks stripped, cleaned, sliders painted, new seals and reassembled.
Stripped the paint off the top and bottom yokes and repainted them.
Just need to paint the frame and clean & paint the engine.....and then the assembling can start..... 8-)

Is there an update for this thread? literally the only reason I use the forum now any possibility of owning a bike is off the cards for 3+ years!
