Madre de Dios! I had to spot the conductors on the rear unit before I had a clue. Fronts are invisible. Now fill us in because that is a very nice setup providing the civilians can see them.
It's how they came from the factory.I noticed springs holding your side covers on (at least that's what it looks like to me) is that right? if so is it a modification or did they come that way from the factory?
Money bloody well spent !Getting my first love original condition T140D mechanically sound. Thought 2 grand would do it, but am up to five and that doesn't include much cosmetically. Clutch and basket, new fork, 2 master cylinders, two MKII rebuilds, fluids, two caliper rebuilds, some cosmetic and polishing, painted dial cups, seat cover, all rubber parts, handlebars. Went the lipstick on a pig route minus paint to keep it honest. Too many memories to hide with paint. Lucas Rita ignition still working like a champ. I can't get my head around that one.
It was indeed Interspan Fred! I was in his workshop with him actually, great guy, very interesting, but most of it way over my head !Would that be Interspan Fred, & if so were you on the phone a while? He's the only bloke to keep me on the phone longer than Tony Haywood!!
My Mechanic.....calls his shop Limey Lucas.....love that.....is SO enthusiastic. Works quickly, efficiently and spot on. He invites me in to show me all the work, all the other old Brit Iron he's working on, the shop expansion. He is a gem of a find. But of course, we all know enthusiasm gets expensive. " I'm gonna do this and that and this and that....." so fast you just nod your head "uh....ok" chachingFred is modifying my Royal Enfield ignition at the moment, & as you say a lovely & interesting bloke, but tends to go off on a tangent during a phone conversation. Not wishing to be impolite I struggle to end the call. One hour & four minutes is the longest of the three calls to date.
