Most motorcycle problems are caused by the nut that connects the handlebars to the saddle.

Looks like a nice bike - you know you made the right choice buying it back.

I have considered selling mine a number of times and then decided against it - the small amount of money I would get is not as usefull as the bike is (and not as fun either)!

I'm glad you decided to register - I had noticed that the 'guest' count was quite high, it is nice to know who people are Smile

I bought the bike end of 2011 with no tax and mot for £500, used it for 8 months and upgraded to a 600cc sports tourer, sold the cB for £500 to a mate, who sold it back to me for £500, mot ran out last week, so fresh mot and new fork oil seals and its good for another year, diy luggage rack and ammo box panniers are on the cards for the next few weeks time.

Yes, i fitted them a few years back, then and now i use the bike to get to and from work, i fitted them as a just incase, i couldnt get the front engine bolt out so the right hand side bar is welded to the bolt, permanently on, but 5 mins with a grinder can have it off.

Ah yes, the infamous engine bolt...
