Good thought, will do some research into those spring, may Hagon can supply some to fit those shock, i really like the look of them and the damping still works.

done some more today, back brake caliper and master cylinder rebuilt and fitted with new Venhil line. Rear wheel and swing arm in and torqued up.

Looking really nice! I'm a little jealous that yours has the bullet turn signals and gauges. Wish mine did.

I always wondered why the US market had those instruments (clocks) fitted when the bikes were "retro".

Finished a full clean of the tank and petrol cock. will be putting some fresh E5 in today drained from the GS125.
