That looks nice Scott, hope you have great fun today, your jaw will hurt buy the end of the day with having a great big smile on your face all day long. Finished in that blue and the with that front decal, called it blubird 85 is prefect, try not to get any speeding tickets though.
Are you bringing it along to the 25th anniversary, its being held in the bluebird function room.

yes mate i have, the only problem  now is the steering  i had to strip it all down again  when i had trouble getting the handle bar stem out and back in again the force i had to use bent the frame in half an inch so that means ive got to knock it back in to shape and i now need to source a replacement stem as well  so im at the end of teather with it at the moment i dont think it wants to go back on the road   :-\ ha ha  thanks for asking umpa  is yours going ok ?

Stick with it Scott, on ebay there was a part chassis and I bet Karl has one somewhere.

Mines OK, I'm about to go to work on it (Afters) and its an awesome day.

So was the problem with the brushes ?

Cheers
