and so after a week or so since Part 2 I have reached the end.

All the parts were there but work got in the way of the build.

The shifter came at last and then when putting the grips on I found it had a split in the rubber so a new pair had to be sent

Anyway I put the stickers on in the lounge this afternoon as I wanted the bike to warm up from being in the garage and with Sarah at school it was safe to bring into the house.

So its all wrapped in a dust sheet and awaiting Christmas day ... 829992960/
