Well I bet that you will get more miles out of it than me this year...I have been to busy renovating our bathroom and bedroom and I think that i've done less than 200 miles on mine so far this year :oops:
I'm off from work from next week for two weeks so hoping to get out on it then, well fingers crossed anyway.. All depends if I start the hallway & stairs :-O
Anyway its looking good eddie, keep up the good work :D

bit of an overdue update, but thanks for the comments guys it is looking really good. I must admit I've slacked off a bit knowing the zephyr won't be going on the road for quite a while now what with the weather turning rubbish, and it's just not worth me getting it road legal for winter.

Anyway it's finally back on two wheels, I re sprayed and polished the back wheel, I couldn't get all the dings and marks out of the rim but it looks ok, fitted the sprocket rear disc etc. I need to make up a brake hose for the under slung calliper as it needs to be longer and drill and tap on some brake hose clips on the torque arm . Still lots of little jobs to do but she's looking great :) :)

Eddie, you're right it is looking great and totally with you for not getting it done now, pretty pointless unless we have a heatwave this winter, and that wont be happening :o
I'll be giving it a month and ill be sticking my bike in its plastic bag until April time next year :cry:
I would like to get out on it at least once more this year if I can, I've manage to do 225 miles on it so far :o

Anyway keep up the good work and thanks for the update :D

Been doing some polishing on the cases, rebuilt the clutch slave cylinder and refurbed the gear pedal, strangely satisfying little jobs like that :)

Quick update, put the silencer on today, i made up a new bracket to hang it as tucked in as possible, so it's virtually finished now, just the tank to fit up and apply my new tank badges and we're there. I'll take some decent pictures outside when it's all done. Will have to stop myself sitting in the shed and looking at it... Bloody gorgeous bikes Zephyr's!

Cheers Swamps i am chuffed with it to say the least! and to be honest I'd rather sit and gawp at it with a cuppa tea (or beer) than watch the shite on tv!

just got the long wait till spring and sunshine to ride it again, you'll have to give me a shout when you get yours out of hibernation and we can both go for a blast!

Cheers eddie

Defo, I'll be up for that, and you carry on admiring that bit of art that you have created, with a beer of course :D
