Fat front

Finished building the 19" front wheel yesterday ready to fit tomorrow morning. Today i set the fat 16" wheel up on the trueing stand and centred the hub, had to move the rim over 3mm then trued it to a 10 thou side throw. The old Borrani has been through the wars a bit with a couple of flat spots and some kerbing damage but it runs true now!

Wakey Wakey

Up early this morning, fitted my number plate and tax disc, adjusted the chain, topped up the fuel and checked the oil.
Choke on, started first kick...... just realised how loud it is 8-D

15 miles of backlane riding and home, a few adjustments to make but running well and pulling strong
