While searching daily on fleabay for LTS related bits for the other project, This popped up with a peanuts b.i.n so another added to the family :D

Bit of a mess but the basis for a enjoyable re-build

So a busy Sunday in the garage and I am left with this!!!

Most of the bushes are shot so need replacing hopefully with the help of LTS Biker this will be covered, Spent the last hour stripping the Judy`s and they are a mess inside :shock: but have some SL`s that will look smart.

These are the worst bushes!!

Hopefully a Rear shock will pop up too!! :D
