Bit pissed, but what can ya do.. Anyways, slowly getting things done. Have new tyres on the way. Put my new tank stickers on (The old ones used to be yellow), and got a little rego label holder from Ebay.









Chasing some new sprockets and chain to increase the speed a little. May get a new carb, and find a way to tuck the exhaust under the body a little more. Looking into personalised number plates..

Enjoy

Monkey back on the road. New brakes in, new tyres on. Had to get a NSW blue slip to get it passed. Thankfully it did, but what a joke. NSW Police can suck a ****.
