All that's left is just building the seat and tank up and then hopefully there'll be some ribbon-cutting  :)

Opps...  forgot I need a fuel filter for the main tap tube - anyone know where I might be able to source one that'll fit - Yambits don't list them as far as I can tell  ???

It appears that originally the tap didn't have a main tube filter - the parts book doesn't show one.  I'll still try to get one that'll fit though, as prevention is always better than cure...  ;)

Cheers bud, it's good to get another one of these (not that there's probably many matching number UK versions of this model smoking about...) back from the dead.  It's fairly original with just a handful of repro stuff (mirrors, grips, throttle cable, plug caps, top hose, clock facia and seat cover) with pretty much everything else being either restored original, OEM or NOS parts.

I'll prob post a summary set of photo's of the jigsaw going together as it's been quite a long journey  ;D
