    Forks back in - it's subtle, but you can see the difference in the stance especially from certain angles. I really want that seat done now.

    I have the RPC forms so she's probably going for clearance and datadots tomorrow. I'll drop past a friend in roadworthy to check if the flash rate on the indicators is ok to pass. They're too fast but I'm waiting for replacement bulbs to arrive which should slow it down enough without faffing with the wiring.

    She's booked in on the 6th Aug for the new saddle which will definitely improve the looks. The standard one is just too bulky & makes the tank look small. I'm busy designing a proper replacement rear tank mount / spacer but that won't be visible. After that it'll just be doing the exhaust in due course. I've got a second set of mudguards which will likely be cut down into a cycle fender up front and shortened on the back, once my buddy's bead roller arrives.

    But I'm already thinking of getting wire spoked wheels 2nd hand to improve the looks down the line ( ).

    Errmmmmm....... I kinda went and blew that one out of the water. If I'd been smart and just stuck it back together tidily but with rough edges (as originally intended) then yes. But I went too far.

    So it'll be my economical runaround retro to save mileage on the work bikes & my car, but I may use it if needs be for trainees who're further down the line than beginners, who aren't going to be dropping it.

    Maybe...

    I think I'm just better off being honest with myself and picking up another clean, used YBR or similar for the school.
