a bit of spondoness.

Is that the touring version Mariwaki?. It looks like a picnic table with a couple of coasters to put your tea cups on

yes the banjo bolts will be cleaned lol

rear wheel ripped out again as the chainguard was rubbing but thats sorted now aswell. a lot of bolts lockwired round the bike, pretty much every bolt thread locked, and matching spacers that had odd ball things and washers as packing, stuff you cant really see but i knew the little bugger were there :eek2 .

getting close now
