    Thanks Bob and Ed. I’m really happy with it. Now I won’t wake the neighbors when I start the bike up in the morning. And it just looks so much better.

    I replaced the upper and lower rocker box seals on the rear cylinder of the Sportster on Sunday. Pretty straightforward job.

    Started stripped down one front wheel yesterday, back knackered with the bead breaker, so put off finishing it till today.
    Continue to strip it, tyre off, clean up the rim, new valve stem, all hunky-dory, and measure the disc that's a bit scory. Hmm... 4.35mm, not good.
    Ah, sod it, pick up another front wheel with two almost unused discs, break the beads, strip the tyre off, knacker back again.
    Enough for today.

    I've got my last few from tyreleader.ie - and if you're shoeing a horse, you can pay in four lots.

    I think I pretty much finished mine up for now. Adjusted the rear brake, resealed the half moons, put a coat of wax on the new paint. Just waiting for my collector license plate and I'll insure it and ride it further than around the block.

    Finally got the new front Roadrider II onto the better wheel with the nearly-new discs. For some odd reason, the PO had chucked out the speedo dog cover, but luckily I'd stocked up with a couple of them last year, as I already had one missing.
    Only minor problem was the Avon's reluctance to seat evenly, but soon sorted.
    Back called time, so I'll balance the wheel tomorrow.

    Thank you. It's not perfect but it's pretty good and I like to ride them so it will get a bit dirty once in awhile.
