SUNDAY - DAY OF REST?
I also spent a great deal of time overhauling the front brake Master Cylinder which is in a right old state! Lots of alloy corrosion on the outside and lots of shit and gunk on the inside :-)
Finally, I did something that could have been left until much later, but I brought it forward as a bit of a motivator. Might sound daft, but I installed the clocks today because (in my head) it's a kind of a milestone and makes the bike look much more finished. This will encourage me to keep going. Luckily, I'd spent a lot of time on the clock components previously, so it was just a case of assembling all the bits, testing the 6 bulbs and fitting a brand new ignition lock. Looks pretty good! Yes, I know the bars look crap - I've got some brand new ones on order from Wemoto.
