END OF THE FRONT END

in fact, it's finished since a moment but i was buzy with various craps, road test now, i've removed the seat to see " how to" for the next , i'm on the affair, with some ideas but hard to build  , my arms are outta control too, often, especially in this season, must take my time to work .

THE NEWS

mix of good and less good, you can't always get what you want,  nearly zero progress , exept a "test" bracket for the speedo and 2 rubber boots for the fork stop and that's all, what a pity.... the caliper is leaking by the bleeder thread , spend a lot of time without results, tighten, overtighten, then the thread comes with the bleeder, end of the game .
one more time, the good things comes from Uk ,  i've received a seat from  Pete http://eattherichuk.blogspot.fr/,  thanks mate .

ON ANY SUNDAY

"new " front end installed, just the brake to bleed and install the speedo sensor somewhere, seems not too bad . I'm searchin' a headlight rim , diameter 130 mm, in good condition , as you can see mine had a long and hard life.... , if somebody have that :  btrividic@aol.com  thanks.

CALIPER SAGA

well, it takes more time than i was thinking ,  but now i've some choice, thanks for that mates , some interesting "specimens", but there's not a big place on the narrow front, even the genuine caliper is in conflict with the spokes, ????  must be grinded to go in place, will see that later, i've some others jobs to do
