not a ducati tt replica






slow progress this week, i have mostly been decorating the house, running to the tip and dancing to ska at the rescue rooms deep in enemy territory in nottingham, [the beat, still a great band] in-between all that i still found time to watch the not-so-mighty rams getting dicked at home to lowly mk don's and fit the lovely newton-equipe racing quick-filler to the 'peaky-blinder' [aka the not a ducati tt replica] project. what looked a relatively easy job turned into a mares nest as is usually the case, trying to juggle the component parts, a bunyl rubber gasket, aluminium support ring, cork gasket, [covered in blue hylomar for comedy purposes] and filler cap mounting along with aligning all said components and starting the stainless countersunk screws was, rather 'challenging' to say the least. yes, the verlicchi stickers on the swinging arm and the ducati tt f2 world champion '81, '82, '83 and old ducati script decals are there to fool the unwary, yes it's cheeky, no i don't give a fuck if it offends anyone. make eyes pretty, wear clean dress.........
