l have checked valve clearence at the race Goldie. Had to grind the lash caps, because the movement from  the rockerspindle was finished.
So the bike is redy for next race season.

A peace of stainless steel catched my eye, and so l decide to machine a new set of three handlebar clamps.

A now it's party time *beer*

If you think, everything is under control, you are not fast enought.

Yesterday I caught up with a couple of mates for a ride: a 1934 morgan, a 1946 HRD and my mk2 R3 which is finally road legal  *yeah*.
We then poodled round to visit the builder of the v8 indian, a very clever guy!

admiring his amazing projects  *respect*.

The new year has brought in rubbish weather so my lunch ride to the puhoi pub today has been cancelled.
Will be back into working on the super rocket in the coming week.
