Today - after more than 4 years - I started the old girl up and ran the motor for a couple of mins - nothing exploded or went bang - and all the new wiring for the Acewell worked too - it seems I might actually know what I'm doing lol lol lol  Wink

Hi guys & thanks for the messages - it's nice to be acknowledged.
.
Wilcom - the bike is very close to completion now. I'm cleaning up. The old panniers & I have to get a new foam made for the seat & have it reassembled. Then I can take it for a quick run to warm it up & set up the timing properly & tune up the carbies.
.
It's taking time because of my illnesses which are much worse in the winter - so I'm not doing much right now. Plus I've run out of money again lol lol so I can take the time out of the shed to save up what I need.
.
When I get home I'll put a picture or two up to show how far I've got with it.
.
Here are the pics ......
