I can't wait for the result

So if anyone needs a P7 with an FIM chip or a spare set of 851 barrels & pistons in a month of so, let me know!

Latest news - 6 valves and 4 rockers replaced (lucky I had a pair of 916 heads lying around!) , SP cams in and shimmed, heads now looking as good as new and Samco hoses on order. Barry and Steve at Motorapido doing a fine job so hopefully next week it will start going together, the snow will melt and I can ride....

The saga continues:

While the crankcases were apart for the crankshaft gallery plug to be replaced the bearings were checked and as a result Steve is adding in a couple of main bearings, new big end shells and a handful of gearbox bearings.

Some of the hoses were showing their age so a set of nice new Samco hoses will be going on when its rebuilt.

Credit crunch???
