It's just suffering from running flat out for 40 or so hours (some with no oil).

We're going to check the rings etc ..

Good do chaps !

Barrel and piston replaced on Snap, head and inlet port polished and engine gas flowed (:smirk:) and new monster carb fitted ...

Top work by chief development engineer Kev and the rest of the team.

Front forks replaced and head bearings fettled.

Ignition advance thingy not fitted due to unavailability of chief electronic engineer but it still wheelies in second !

No. two bike (Snap II) started and some of the excess metalwork trimmed, it sounds as sweet as a ballroom blitz. !

Reconvene on the Queen's official birthday for the next installment, hopefully we'll have a bigger bore exhaust by then and a placcy tank for Snap II.

Sorry about the no show chaps......................After a morning of Jetwashing paint from stone work outside the back door we discovered a significant leak and spent the rest of the afternoon mopping out an inch of water in the basement sitting room:frown:

Natural stone looks nicer, and it wouldn't have looked right when the door is repainted.
Need to make the frame watertight first though:blush:

Ooops!

Welly time at yours then Chris? :sad:

Of course, I bet it was all your fault? :lol:

Nice to see you back Henpecked :thumbup: I noticed from another thread that you're selling Audis now?

In the interview did you say something along the lives of "Being a member of TT, I have a wealth of experience in dealing with cnuts of all types, which makes me the ideal candidate for the job! Oh, yeah, and I know how to sell cars too"? :smirk:
