Just a few updates.
She's just about ready for a shakedown on the weekend.
But thought I would do the old school trick to protect the Hydrolic cables with some protection cable protection from EBay.
Love it. Used to do this very thing back in the day

Right that's it sorted.
It's now hung on the garage wall for the weather to change.
I'm not taking her out in the rain, and wet conditions.
So I'll give it a couple of months and see what happens.
I love the fact I've got this to ride in the coming months.

I it's a chrome frame bud.
But I dulled it and lacquered it, I got the effect I was looking for though.

I'll see what the weather is like next week.
Need the gears tuning, forgot about them.

Went for a spin the other evening, nothing hardcore just a shake down.
Gears need tuning a lot, other than that .... Perfection...

Tell you what though I had forgotten how good Magura rim breaks are, I very nearly landed head first through a passat rear window as a gently tapped the front Magura leaver.

Note to self...adjustment needed...
