Hey up guys, well I last posted on here about 4 years ago and just bought another Thunderace so I'll be back posting again soon.

How's everyone?

Jason

Hi Jason. Good to see you remembered us. Think weíre all ok. Inmates are still on medication and some are still tinkering away in the background (eh Nuggitt)

I'm a very busy bee at the moment.

All the panels and tank off for a full respray. This is what I came across when I took the right hand mirror off. Picture 2. Not a pretty sight is it?





I've done some work on the green cogs in the clocks because my speedo readings are a bit erratic. I have a spare set of clocks with lower mileage on them so I've changed the cogs from one to another and I'll see if that cures it.





While I had the clocks off I also made a reference to the bulb sizes etc. The 12v x 1.2 w had blown so I put a new one in.



Changed the oil and filter and while the engine was empty of oil I changed my clutch cover for a nearly new one because it was looking rather tired.







These engine casing bolts came in the post today and also these spire nuts. The old spire nuts are all rusty.
That's one of my jobs to do tomorrow.





Yesterday I fitted 4 new spark plugs, a new fuel filter, Cleaned all the electrical connectors and wires all around the clocks .



I've been out today and bought her some new perfume. laugh She's having a good scrub up tomorrow.



In between all of this I'm also doing the school run with my Granddaughter.

Wow very busy!.
So I got this Thunderace (I'll post some pics over the weekend) from North Wales just before they locked it all down.

It was £725 but I am really saying this cost me £600 because I paid £125 deposit and was just about to transfer money from bank when I noticed that I had £125 in my Paypal account, I didn't even know I had that, it must have been when I sold loads of little bits (not motorcycle related) over a period of a few months for a few quid each and forgot it was there.

As I didn't even realise I had the Paypal money it was a bonus so I just took £600 with me in cash and paid for bike.

Its a blue old thing that is rough.

Oh I wish I still had my old bronze, white and black one but that got sold to someone down south who then took off the Ohlins shock and resold it on where it ended up north again and if I remember there was a video of someone wringing its neck.

Anyway I'll take some pics of this new one and then decide what to do with it

Jason

While I'm waiting for my panels etc to come back from the sprayers. I'm ordering bits and pieces that I'll need to replace old with new.

I ordered these fairing bolts yesterday morning and at 9am today they turned up at my door. That's not bad going in these difficult times is it?





I'm waiting for the postman coming with some new fuel filters and silicone tubing. I'm changing all the plastic tubing that's on the bike. I've already done the battery overflow pipe with some I had in stock.

I've got rid of the old red coloured fuel pipe and fitted some reinforced pipe.



Lots more to do yet. nod thumbsup

Be interesting when you hit the starter button after the rebuild.

Did you hear the one about the HD owner who rebuilt his engine? Just doing a last visual check before hitting the button and he noticed a washer on the garage floor underneath the bike. WHERE DID THAT COME FROM? "Whats the problem?" asked his mate.
"I've just rebuilt the motor and I must have forgotten this bloody washer."
"That's terrible." said the mate, smirking behind his hand.
