    Flummoxed! XS650SK Front Fork Alignment.

    For carpentry work I still use my Dads old spirit levels (and other tools), they are decades old but accurate and reliable. I have a few various modern levels but for accuracy dads do the job. I fit expensive wardrobes and media wall systems (typically £10k+ for a 6 door robe) so precision is...

    Good old British Midlands engineering for you…… As one Brummie mechanic said to another over a cup of tea during a weekly work strike ‘Fookin’ ‘ell Eddie if it goes oop an‘ down the bloody tube it’s good by me‘ And so the birth (demise) of British Industry precision was born.

    Whats your weather right now?

    Cardiff has turned into Manchester where it fu*kin’ rains constantly. Today I put both Taffy and The Brat on SORN (Statutory Off Road Notice), a legal requirement in Blighty so I don’t have to pay Road Tax over winter. If I get caught using the bikes by the Plod (Police) under SORN it’s a fine...

    Buying a classic 1972 XS650 with high mileage

    A well restored machine with an engine rebuild; no brainier just buy it. Milage is irrelevant. A low milage shagged bike is a liability. A well maintained / restored bike would be a pleasure to own.

    Blue or black? (Repainting tins)

    Blimey, after reading through all these opinions I’m more confused than post #1. Best do what you want really.

    Blue or black? (Repainting tins)

    I love restored machines when done at a high show level. A good looking rider, on the other hand, is more than acceptable done well to your own taste.

    LOS PACAMINOS. A second live outing at the Acapela Studio. Paul Young features in this band (ex singer with Q-TIPS) and a solo artist. A superb live act and well worth watching.

    Let's See The XS's

    Yes Raymond, a few weird things on that machine but its his bike I suppose. Also some beautifully crafted elements too. I would prefer a normal gear change / clutch lever assembly; but I like the hydraulic activation tho' The arse wiping gear-change 'motion' ('scuse the pun) is not a great or...
