I have had the frame and cases for 12 years now, bought at the same time as the frame and engine for my monoshock bike as seen in the Scottish trip.
The time is right to reclaim it from the graveyard.
It will be a slow project for reasons that will become clear pretty soon.
The head and barrels are in Germany being restored with whatever is needed to bring them up to specification.
The crank has already been disassembled, cleaned and new bearings fitted.
The frame has been braced at the headstock (a known failure point) and repaired (new battery tray and battery strap post) and has been repainted along with the swingarm, centrestand and associated bracketry.
Wheels have been repainted, new bearings and tyres/tubes fitted.
The crankcases have been bead blasted as will the head and barrels after engineering work is completed.
So I will be able to start the rebuild in a few weeks.
Watch this space.
