No space for it eddie otherwise I might of been tempted, but tbh I'd just stick it in the corner and admire it :)
I struggle to find the energy to get mine out, think I've done about 150 miles on mine this year if that :(
How's your bike going ? have you been out on it yet, now that's a minter with the amount of work you put in :D

Hi Swamps,
I'm ashamed to say my Zephyr hasn't gone anywhere since i finished it, it's sitting in the shed corner as too many other projects have taken over and its just not worth the aggro of extracting it, plus its another one to Tax M. O. T & insure!.....
Plus i recently bought a ZRX 1200R which is a lovely ride!!, but even that i leave at work as there's no space at home!
My plan is to definitely get the zephyr on the road next spring and use it, but I will have to sell one or two bikes next year and sadly she may be one of them, but we'll see.
I'll keep you posted as be good to catch up with you sometime

Sorry to hear that you may have to sell on the Zeph, such a shame considering the amount of work that you put into rebuilding it :( Hoping that when you do decide to sell that you get a good price for it, a lot of sweat went into that bike :shock:
At least you have more things to do, how's the Z900 ? will you be giving that a full rebuild :)
Yes we shall have to arrange a meet up, maybe when you get the Zeph on the road. I checked mine and I've done 127 miles on it this year, bloody sad but i just cant find the energy to get it out :(
I'll put a few more miles on it this year, hopefully :shock:

Hi Swamps,

I'll only sell the Zephyr if there's no other option and only after I've ridden it for a bit. But being as i change my mind every 5 minutes who knows! I obviously don't want to let it go if I can help it... Do you want 1st dibs!!

The Zed is coming along slowly and I'm currently working on a couple of others so pretty busy in the old shed!

Will definitely give you a shout when the Zephs back,

Cheers eddie

Well fingers crossed that you'll change your mind :)
As I said before, no room in my shed, constantly squeezing around my bike to get to things as it is, and I would deff not leave any bike in the open :o
Drop me a message when you get the bike out, if we arrange something I'll get my butt into gear and I'll make it :lol: :lol:
