    I'm not sure if there's enough sponsorship money to get me to burn down the '93, but I'll listen to offers. :bow:

    Haven't done much to this bike other than ordering parts, decided to wash up the existing bodywork so I can get patterns to have some replacement stickers made up. Part of me wants to rattle-can the replacement plastic and just ride the bike, part of me wants to do it right and have everything repainted. If I can find a broken front fairing with a usable piece on the left side, I'll plastic weld it and ride the bike in it's rough shape.

    Santa gave me some time to tinker on this bike, was pleasantly surprised to find the carbs are relatively clean. Off to the ultrasonic cleaner they go...

    Thanks to @Banditracer for mentioning an ultrasonic cleaner for carb cleaning. The difference after cleaning is amazing.

    This bike has been on the back burner for a long time, finally getting/making some time to work on it. Valves adjusted and engine back in the bike, rear suspension completed...

    I have a full set of red/black/silver 93 bodywork, but it's currently attached to a '94, that bike is for sale now.

    The only spares I have I'll be keeping to go along with this bike if/when I decide to sell it.

    My dad used Simple Green in his, not sure if it was diluted or full strength?

    I use the Simple Green Precision, been told don't use the regular SG, it will eat aluminium.
