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.
