    I think this bike is too far gone to get it back to a nice condition so i'm just going to make it reliable and thrash the tits off it haha.

    The PO also created the fairing security stay which consists of bolts through fairing copper tabs and plug chain and a re usable cable tie to attach to frame. Oh and bog.

    Bikes back together and seems to run well. Ive moves onto cosmetics with my main goal to get the colour changed from tarp blue to white. Also working on the dash. My current one is screwed. Should I stay oem or go aftermarket? Previous owner just threw bog at everything.

    A very frustrating and expensive mistake was made today. But on the plus side some more oem bits for the TC 2T turned up!

    I was looking at getting one for the forks but didn’t buy it in the end.

    As you can see it needs a sand blast and paint. One of the mounting tabs has been puncture and fs with the foam. Not sure what I’ll do with that. Organising some tf125 forks to replace the screwed ones as well. I still have to check out the clutch and get the carb tuned.

    Having 3 project bikes is painful. Air box turned up for the TC. It’s a bit tatty but at least now I have one. Like most old bikes heaps of shit needs to be bolted to it.

    Forgot to mention that was off the tc125. The ali route might be a go I think. But if tf125 forks are the same I should be sweet. After I ran out of things to do on the tc I took the clutch cover off the gsx750 to discover that the fuel that didn’t overflow on to the drive way made its way into the engine It never ends.

    Finally managed to separate the seized stanchion. Needless to say, I don’t think I’ll be able to tidy this one up
