Well it's been a while coming but I've picked up a 22 and am embarking on a journey to utilize the skills or lack of I picked up on the MaC19.
This will not be as epic as the MaC19 as my plans for this bike are as follows:
Get the bike running, currently it's not and has a suspected blown piston.
Clean it up, looks pretty good but if you suffer from a little OCD then you notice dirt in places most people don't care about.
Rebuild the brakes, the rear wheel is sticking a little and I think the piston cylinders need a hone. I will replace the pads and install some HEL braided lines while I'm at it.
Clean the carbs, they look pretty good but while it's apart why the fuck not.
I don't want to replace all the fairings or change the colour as they are in good condition and I think this colour appeals to the younger generation looking for there first bike. The only part I will replace is the rear fairing that wraps around the rear light.
I'll paint the engine and brake calipers and maybe even the forks but not 100% sure about those yet.
I'm working on a budget and want to sell the bike once I've registered it.
Enough shittalk, let the journey begin.......
Dad and I took a flying trip to Melbourne to pick up this.
I got it home and realized my shed was leaking (mainly from condensation) and I needed a place to work on the beast, so I ripped the roof sheets off, laid some saking (not the Japanese alcoholic type
) and re-installed the sheets.
I now had a place to work.
Not very big but good enough.
When I visited the CBR whisperer I took note of his bike stand and thought "that is a fucking good idea", I'm not exactly a spring chicken and I started getting a sore back always bending down to work on the MaC19, so I built one.
Representing the crew.
I now have a nice little place to call my own.
Got some shit to do so I'll continue this in the morning.
