I knew Gordon had done 23,000 miles and expected a certain amount of
seized bolts, worn out bearings etc.
I naively thought "they won't be that much to replace" - Wrong! The
bearing at the bottom of the shock was £36 plus vat, swinging arm spacer
£54 plus vat..... and so on.
It's begining to look like I'll be busy on a lathe turning down new spacers etc.
Next job is painting the wheels and going to get the engine and forks back from Gordon's "special friends" where they have been tuned and fettled.
