(Sung to the tune of “Back in the high life again” by Steve Winwood).
I have managed to spend some time in the workshop but mainly working one-handed. Rhino’s friend has been sold and a deposit taken. The intention is that the bike will be rebuilt and in all likelihood will end up better than it was before the accident. It had been my intention to restore it at some time and it seems this may yet happen.
I have removed the front mudguard and its brackets and turned the fork stanchions through 180 degrees so that they now point forward and the wheel is clear of the engine and exhaust. The wheel turns but the tyre just scuffs the right hand fork lower at one point. It will, however, now be possible to move the bike. The S3 type seat has been fitted and boxes filled with whatever I can find toward producing a 750 engine.
