That's good to hear Grant.
The bike looks sweet.

Is that a sheep or a polar bear on the seat?

Jeff,

Mate now that the seafood stocks are depleting and the warmer weather is hanging around a little longer I stumbled across this juvenile polar bear skin on Ebay, there a little more readily available now as you would understand, postage was a little $$$$ even for a juvenile but the thought of that cost soon faded away once I got it all unwrapped and tried it out... very nice and comfy....




sheep mate, had it for 25 years!! :)
Cheers, Grant

Shit where the hell are they or did they go?

I know I was laying the knee down a little fanging over through the hills but that's just getting a little to low for me.

Doyle did you pinch'em did'ya, you've been lurking around my shed a little these past few weeks :o

I recommend strong thread locker on the head end of the stud.

Or, you could just epoxy them to the head cover. I gave up trying to actually use mine. The two side nuts held everything tight.

You can buy them singularly. If you don't want the oil filler, just buy two without. They fit either side (in/ex).
(but you need a real center stud, then. Ask ZM, he may be available!)
