    just showing the drops of oil looks like both 2 stroke and bottom end oil ill give it a good clean in a day or two and try locate the leak looks like its from gear shaft

    needs drilling and taping although cable ties doing a great job 😄

    if i had a welder then i could of just run a bead on the back as it have nasty stretch fractures on the bend might ask a local garage

    seems a bit oily to me


  • @terry.tz they can be a bit waxy from previous head gasket failures how over is recommend a rebuild as the first thing to do then paint and as you build it back up fix and replace the little issues but a nice bike anyways you keeping it original?

  • @declan naa it not staying original well I don't no time will tell I suppose and ye I think it is the gasket tho seems a bit too smokey as for rebuild etc as much as I should do it I need it on the road asap for a few weeks then I can start tidying it up so unfortunately I don't have a choice little things are going to be first

  • @terry.tz can't wait to see it finished

  • @declan that will be a long time very long time if ever, to be honest, it probably always be a tinker toy if you know what I mean but then again as already stated time will tell I do have some ideas but ill keep them close for now things can change

  • new battery did not keep its charge

  • @terry.tz going on how crusty everything looks I'd check all earths

  • ye will do there is a few funny connections

  • @terry-tz So I may have to adjust my Build thread title 😂

    Keep us updated as you go, mine was always a weekend work in progress when I had the time. I used it pretty much everyday during the week.

  • @declan yes it was shit from passed fails I don't understand why you wouldn't clean that shit out
