thanks Wilf. it is a blast to ride! altho at my age after about an hour or so I am looking for a break ( and a Jacuzzi!!).. but got to love the look of a cafe bike!! Thanks for the link Brian yes the Oldani is small but I dont think it could be worse than the stock Commando disc! right now not sure what I want to do... have seen so many options for the front binders... but want to go with a drum setup of some sort. I just like the look of the drum type brakes better. the bike has Borrani rims, and a Triumph Conical rear hub( A Cheap Manx look alike) running a Boyer
Ignition system, and a single AMAL
carb, Its a one kick to start bike, altho has high Comp pistons so have to run the best gas with Octane booster or else it pings badly... but it pulls really strong, and being very light helps also. there is a small battery
behind the gearbox. I wired in a battery
tender as its a real pain to get to the battery
. The Tank I am running right now is fibreglass, lined with the Caswell product which I endorse highly, done a couple of tanks using that product and never had a problem with our modern petrol eating the tank etc.
