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 :)
