    I threw the Hagon issue on to the GB forum. Replies were mixed.

    I don't seem to have the same problem with the shock springs fouling on the rear drive casing, not sure why ?
    I have a washer between the shock and the rear drive when fitted (to protect the rear drive), but its actually ineffective, so doesn't function as a shim.

    Hmmmm. Thanks Andy. Its not an exact science, is it? Haven't put my butt on the seat since fitting, as its still on the lifter with no back wheel. Maybe different springs, whatever, but Mr Hagon was adamant I had the correct ones.

    (Memo to self.. Hurry up and finish this project.)

    Work has continued over the weekend, with the wiring now complete (other than a couple of sub harnesses where I am waiting on delivery), rear sets, coils, ignition system, brakes rebuilt carbies fitted, clutch cable, right and left side controls etc
    Still have a few things to get finished and then hopefully fit the front and rear fenders and start looking towards the first firing of the new motor;

    So with the new header pipes and repainted original mufflers still to fit, she will almost look like a bike again

    Huge day today.
    Finished the last few teething problems and after 17 months off the road she started for the first time.
    Now to tidy up the last few bits of wiring, a few odds and ends and dress her up in her newly painted clothes.

    Pictures to come as soon as she is finished

    Big congrats on getting it started. Well done.
    In theory, there's no difference between theory and reality.
    But in reality, there is.
