Mates recommended Brett , who i know from the salt lakes with his 1000cc Bottle, i am just a little concerned if i sent it to him it could be updated beyond my needs

Started a full rebuild on the air cleaner base today welding up around 20 rust holes. It would seem that anything steel or rubber didn't fair too well on old "Tetanus" :(

Just waiting on another headlight bucket to turn up(No 4 :( ) so I can spray it, the air cleaner base, calipers and the centers of the disks........and anything else I can find that needs black paint.

Bretts the man, did my motor back in 2008, asked me at the time about the bike and what I wanted done, which was a reliable club bike, so the only real upgrade was Wiseco pistons.

No doubt, but that's the reason I have 4 headlamp buckets...People have a tendency to bullsh*t about the condition of things, so If I can repair something I will.

Seat cover turned up today, though not perfect it's still more original looking the the Pit-replica item I purchased.......And made in Australia 8-)

I also picked up some chrome :)
