Frame and ancillaries now at powder coaters and gas tank/sidepanels at painters.. I remembered I needed to repair the foot on the sidestand, so set to work with a 'borrowed' mig welder, then re-cut the grooves with a hacksaw.. This will have to go for powder coating too (not too serious a delay as it won't be needed for sometime)
Now time for serious 'elbow grease' as this timing cover needs further rubbing down ready for polishing.. Inner timing cover and LH crankcase need some alloy welding too due to a DPO being too rough with it!!!
