Ain't you got any piston ring compressors? :rain: Is that your paintwork? :cool: Don't think you need those rubber cylinder gaskets though. Nasty things to clean off as well.  :angry:

Interesting thought... But don't you need 'members' for a 'Club'..?

If you can't bleed your bike's brakes then you can't have a bike.

Nice work John, its getting me fired up, my XJ frame is ready for powder coating or painting, can't decide which yet.

Keep up the good work and keep the photos coming.

Ta for that.
The frame was powder coated,well sort of.Thick on top surface,but grinning through and rusting on the underside as though the gun was in a fixed position.
Consequently not a fan of powder coating.At least if your spraying yourself you know whats on there      Bah Humbug and all that

Have 3 rear swingarms with wheels,and you'd of thought I'd be able to make up one decent rear end.     WRONG
Every rear wheel is damaged  to some extent. Common to all is damaged/butchered threads for discs.
Can deep gouges on the rim be repaired by, Araldite? looks like previous tyre changes was done with shovels.
Was hoping to do away with inner tube.
