Ok so me and my little ones were bord so did some tinkering. Brouggt some welding wire so will crack into rust soon.

So polishes up the wheels as washing them didnt doo much. Not perfect but miles better. 

Steering wheel had no centre cant find one atm so just made a tempery one. It works so will do for now.

Gear stick cover was yuk so made 1 out of a old ripped shirt nothing flash but looks better.

Also made one for hand break.

Fixed oil leak outta the rocket cover. 

And cleand gapped plugs.

And did some stuff on my 1982 yamaha xv1000 chopper-ish. Also on this site. Under 2 wheels cheers
