F 650 CS tidy up.
The bike had spent some time in Shetland and some of the paintwork and engine coatings were beginning to look tired.
The job begins
Thats the bodywork all off
And the engine coming out (heavy wee thing)
On the bench (now singing soprano)
Close attention to the swinging arm and rear wheel bearing assembly
Getting to just the frame
Need a bigger garage
Frame and forks re-sprayed (after hours of prep)
Rear shocker clamp (do not try this with someone else near!)
Getting the new oil to the "full" mark was interesting
How's that for a colour contrast!
All things to all men. Alternator,starter,ign pick up (tells jokes etc)
Can't beat old lemonade crates
I can see why Chyrsalis used a different frame for racing
