What do you plan on doing to clean up the reflector lens on the headlamp, can it be saved? 

I've got rolls of sticky backed ally foil that I use to 're-silver' my reflectors.

That just genius. I never thought of that, a great way to refurb old reflectors!

Current bikes......1958 D5, a 77 Suzuki GT250 and a B175 almost ready for the road and a 76 Honda C90 in the workshop. A 1980 Honda CB400N now on the road and my everyday ride is a 2011 Harley Davidson Sportster. All bikes (except the D5) are now for sale...

Rex came to the rescue ordered new head gasket and it arrived the next day.

Today i fitted it and did a little test run, didn't quite realise how boggy my garden is .

I could agree with you, but then we would both be wrong

When i first pulled away the back wheel was spinning up, that is why the handle bars where wobbling about. After I finished tearing up the garden i then spent an hour raking over the tyre marks and filling in the troughs that some how appeared. Think i got  away with that one, LOL.

Today i will finish the wiring and then the part i don't like doing , Paper work, to apply for a V5.
