    Its amazing what turns up when you have a good rummage, in just the last week i made over £350 quid selling some bits i had stashed away that i will never use as well as finding many parts i can use on the project :)

    i keep trying to put together a roadrace machine out of the bits i have extra. i keep getting it to the roller stage with cases and then blow up the race bike and steal stuff from it. right now its sitting with no rear wheel because i destryed the wheel bearings in the LSR

    Boy oh boy Darkman you have a job on your hands there. I guess i know how your festive season will pan out this year. I can't wait to see the bike when it has been in the hands of a master.
    Joe.

    my morgo was flooded once and the gearbox had rust in it when i tore it down. but it did not look as bad as that outer cover.

    what do the gears and shafts look like?

    Sadly most of the gears have pitting on them as do the shafts, possibly the layshaft will be ok but its that dilemma of how much pitting is acceptable. I will give them a thorough clean and then decide :) Luckily i have a good few spare parts.

    Cheers Sandi, Su has always worked on bikes as like most teens growing up in the 70's if you wanted a bike it meant buying a cheap old scrapper and doing it up lol, she even had to give her nails a final scrub this morning before popping into work for a few hours. A pic of Su on her first Triumph in 1973/4.

    The pre build is under way ready for welding side stand lug and tank brackets and the cases are blasted and ready for the engine rebuild.

    Todays little jobs, rebuild the rocker boxes after blasting with new seals and clean off the old packing grease from the new gears and make sure it all works.

    Hi @darkman . Which blasting process(es) do you use and where do you get it done, please? Those engine cases look superb.
