Morning all, i had a bit of a break from this project so i could fit a bathroom in the house. I still haven't finished yet but need to get back in the garage before i go mad! Cracked on with a bit more wiring yesterday. Got the brake lights and indicators working. I also tidied up the ignition/charging loom by shortening cables and adding proper plugs. Going to hit into it again saturday and try and get it finished as i have a que of other jobs to do.

I also attempted to start it as it's been sat a while untouched. It went first time!

Well I'm a sidelight bulb away from putting this thing in for an MOT now. I need to drill the stator plate incase the seal starts passing oil and make up a tab washer to prevent the flywheel slipping on the crank.

My plans for this bike however have changed. I can no longer keep it as I have just bought another project. What would you guys value it at? I was thinking around £900. The frame is sorted now and I've used stainless bolts where I can on the rebuild. It will be sold with 12 months MOT.

Enjoyed reading that and if you ever want an apprentice give me a shout! Have completed 2 x restos on dtr125s with another to do but lack your machining skills sadly, I have a jap import 12v model with electric start already but interesting to read how you approached the problem, fair play to you. Hope you find a new owner that appreciates your work and good luck with your next project, may restore mine in the future but in fairly good nick anyway and probably better left alone (something I struggle with)
