Have a little pile of bits to fit now, Rear disc, Rear brake fluid reservoir, Red bar ends and a black top yoke. Planning to take all the controls off and give them a tidy up so the bars look good. I'll post some pics when I get round to this.

Also need to take the powder coat off where the sub frame meets the frame as I forgot it earths through the join and the tacho has gone funny since refitting everything.

Quite a bit done today, but not particularly photogenic. I fitted a new rear disc, rear fluid reservoir (mine had to be hacked to get one of the screws out), Loosened off the subframe bolts, swivelled it down a bit and cleaned off some powdercoat so it earths to the frame, Oil and filter change, fixed the tacho which had stopped working. (the two weeks in bits under a cover had allowed the earth connections on the back of the dials to corrode), and fitted a late model top yoke which is black, mainly because mine was in awful condition and really let the bike down looking at it while I was riding, along with some shiny anodised bar ends to go with the Honda grips. (not missing the heated grips AT all).

That's kinda it for now, plan is to ride it and enjoy the sunshine till the winter, then it will be completely stripped, engine rebuilt (it's blowing a little bit of oil) and various other bits powder coated.
