I've got the new rear wheel guard now, and I've managed to locate a new 2in front tyre. Front wheel is now out so I can strip the frame and re-paint it. I'm having a week off next week so I'm hoping to get on with a bit of it after I finish the decorating. :shock:

This story always makes me smile because years ago when I asked Clive how much Nitro he'd used he assured me he'd never used ANY. Dave Leqop says the same.

Just read through this again, and I'm still working on it! So many hold ups. To ensure the bike will be seen in 2014 I have guaranteed that It will be at an event and I will stick to that. I should finish the frame painting this weekend and then I can start putting stuff back on.
So many little bits and pieces need replacing, and finding or making odds and sods takes me an age. It's a shame I'm not better at this sort of thing and more time would help as I back to working 6 days a week!
Just sorry Its taking so long.

That will be 2015. I've definitely lost track of time.

Dragstalgia at Santa Pod in July would be the perfect event to get her on show again.
Make it happen please. :)

It WILL be there. Unlikely to be ridden though. I'm not sure the grip level is suitable to run it and I'm not sure my patience can handle the waiting around for a run. Best keep it static.
