Three hours is way to short of a timeline for most shipments. Five hours would be more appropriate.

Two pics of DH's bike in May when he came to visit Hooton Park...





Seat is a beauty, he had it recovered with exotic leather somewhere in Asia...

Dunno Bruce, I really haven't done much to it since getting it basically running and stopping...for instance the oil pump leak / sheared stud in the early posts on this thread is still as it was...the engine will have to be pulled soon to sort that out and I'll do the seal fix that Ferrous and others have detailed. After that I have the parts to fit fork gaiters but have just been too lazy to fit them, and it needs some good rear shocks, and then maybe I'll feel good about it. I'll probably do the oil pump while the weather is still good to give me the enthusiasm to get it back together quickly...get the cracked cover welded while it's apart. My friend also just bought black painted rims for his Norton and they look really good...

Oh, and mag is leaking pretty bad now too, I think Monte on here described how to fix that one, and I know Patrick knows how its done...will have to do a little research and try not to overthink it...
