another perfectly good motorcycle ruined.......

Saturday, 29 January 2011



one step forward, two steps back, carefully cut the reducing bushes in half, quick clean up on the bridgeport and mount the renthal bars in the renthal risers and slide the renthal grips on, [ok, i like renthal stuff,], i take care to line up the cuts with the riser splits, [i know, i know, i need to get a life], i measure the bar's and centre them between the risers, clean up the socket head set bolts and apply the loctite, step back to admire, kettle on and brew, nitromors the sprocket cover, singing away and feeling smug, dangerous spots it first, he's got eye's like a shithouse rat, 'casting's split youth...', i don't want to believe it and try and kid myself it's just paint clinging to the casting, i stick it in the vice and move it backwards and forwards, bollocks, he's right, common fault on sporty's, all that work milling and cutting the cover away, filing and emery cloth, fucktastrophe......
