My black, project bike back on the road and running properly

Postby Brian Steers » Wed May 23, 2012 12:04 am

Having got my bike back from the dyno (125bhp instead of only78 and a lovely straight power curve) and the speedo working, I put my black project bike back together yesterday. I took it for it's first ride since last year today, and it goes like stink! At last it goes like it should, so I am going to get some use out of it this year. Over winter I shall try to sort out a matched pair of wheels, and then I can start making it look pretty. The end is in sight, and it has only taken fifteen years. Yeehar!!!

Congrats, post the curve please.
I've just started riding the GTS again, and it'll be changing
