It arrived on Wednesday courtesy of a nice chap in a white van. So I've been getting to grips with the bike, which in general is in good fettle and seems to have been cared for. I think it's going to make for a pleasant machine and look forward to having it up and running.
But I can't understand how people can ride around with the wrong brake & clutch levers (making operation much heavier than it needs to be), incorrectly routed control cables compounding that error, cables cobbled together with blue crimp-on connectors (my pet hate), odd metric bolts here & there instead of the correct UNF ones which are very easily available.........
All details which a weekend in the garage and a few quid can easily put right (and which task I am getting stuck into).
Ah well, it all makes work for the (ex-)working man to do.
