What you have shown is a good sign.
You show a clean workspace, with plenty of room and a well laid out work area.  The approach is systematic where all the parts removed are tidy and laid out in an orderly fashion. This also shows your interest and your commitment in what you are doing. I wish you well and must say that I am a tinge jealous - well done and keep up the good work.

Yes nicely laid out. Nice workshop that. Got more room than me (to store some parts ?  ;D). Wrong beer though  :D. Patience will be rewarded I reckon.

Jimmy,

While you had that apart, you should perhaps have had the head mods done to the inlet side and all valve thoats.

Been a long time!

She still lives.

Got a few years of pics to find n collect. To find out the colossus
Of what's been going with her after all this time.

Coming soon.....

But the important thing is. She does still roar. And still on the road.

Aka The beast
