I’ve been away for a while, missed you all, so came back.
I hope we’re all playing the long game and manage to stay upright once restriction lift. If anyone needs a lift with anything, shout up.

Alright my old pickle, know your way around a Ducati? Could come and help me rebuild it Image

Hooked up the light this morning, got a completely new error.... ERR NAS... I could cry but i'm past that.

Failing your possible lack of Ducati knowledge you could point me in the direction of a cheap 8 yard/tonne skip hire Company as.... I got bored.... And..... I chopped the garden down lol

Cabin fever isn't something I've had too bad. Works been mental, everyone is off. I'm only going out to Priority 1 jobs. It burns well that pine. Have a bonfire and watch the meteor shower later. My Bikes been sorned since last September but it passed its MOT in February I was already to rock and roll and then this shitstorm landed.!! I've been wobbling round work on my latest build to run it in and snag it but that's been my only bike time.
Glad your all still here.

Amazing, did you source ewt from Kepspeed?
I'd love a chance to do a cub but they all seem to sell for way too much.

Check this sweet ass Cub..

I bought it as 2 piles of parts, one in Stafford (failed project due to ambition exceeding skill level) and one in Farnworth ( Custom cub builder that was short of storage) it has been a pleasure to do and to date it stands me at £800. It’s MOT ready and insured but I’ve not taxed it yet cos covid . It runs well but has high compression and starting is a bit of a faff. It’s a brand new motor, I played around with the valve clearances and installed a new CDI (with a good retard curve ) but it’s still got a right kickback. I’ve also got an overflowing carb, a fuel filter is on order and I need to set the float height. The last job is fixing the speedo to the leg shield properly, it’s taped in at the minute, Heath Robinson style. The handlebars are Kepspeed but that’s all. The rest of it is shed built. I’m starting the XJ600 again next. I just fancied doing another cub and my drunken eBay perusals resulted in this.

All right Lee lad. I don't blame you phasing back gradually. I've got the Trumper mot'd ready to go but the chain is staying on until were allowed out and A&E is less stressedImage
