Sadly I badly injured my back at work a few months ago, so I've been unable to do any work on the bike since the injury. My back is getting much better now so hopefully I'll be able to restart working on this project again real soon.........
Thanks, it didn't take anyway near as long as I thought to get it up and running. I've just been doing some final touches.
I'm going to ride this one on nice days 🙂
Here's how she stands now.
I knew they need doing eventually. These were 10+ years old when I bought them and this has been my trusty steed for ~10+ years, once daily then stored for 4 years now just a weekend warrior.
Painless process to strip and rebuild and the kits are readily available on eBay.
All cleaned, rebuilt, new oil and refitted.
These are fully adjustable and I must admit, have just been on whatever setting they came with off the MX bike I bought them from. Since this is a road warrior, I've stiffened the suspension up a fair amount. I'll be interested in seeing how this now performs on the road!
The last ride out I did ~70 odd miles, the handling was becoming very poor. So I'm looking forward to the next adventure on it.
