It lives at last
It's taken 15 months but at last I can be a member of the forum and include the rider part.
Here's how it looked

After a bit of work

I'm at the ridding and tuning stage now it takes me back to a time when you could get back on the road with a packet of cigarette papers and a screwdriver .
It's a interesting bike to ride it loves to get thrown into corners preferably with maximin revs applied any thoughts of this bike helping to preserve my licence have disappeared. :D

the rear wheel was out of true and spokes were starting to furr up so I decided to take them to a wheel builder for new spokes polish rims and hub clean. With the brake disk disided to leave alone it will clean up on the road

Now the bit I was dreading the wiring .haveing never done it before apart from the odd plug I started small with the switch gear. My one saving grace was I had something to copy I took my time and bought some good wire stripers and crimpers.
