I suggest you clean your points up with a piece of emery paper or a points file.. throw a set of new plugs in it, check your carb settings, needles etc... Just remember a engine needs three things to fire.. 1) "Fuel" (Air/fuel) Carbs 2) "Spark" (Plugs, coils, points) 3) "compression" (engine bore). ...

Masking for paint.....

Well above you see dirty old flakey paint covered engine cases... They have been sandblasted and are now ready for paint. prior to paint however i have given the cases a very good blow through with compressed air and a very good cleaning with solvent to rid all of the beads from the blasting. I also...

Just looking at that rear setup again..... extending the swingarm would be great but the shocks are already on a fair angle as it is, you would have to relocate the top shock pivot points along onto your fender struts aswell. Good luck!!

I reckon your on to something there Taz, another 3 inches in the swingarm would be neat, bring the rear down a touch, and along with shifting the fender it would house that seat nicely 8) Top stuff Robbie, that is one neat, tough looking ride there!
