I finely managed to locate the correct chain guard and thanks to a forum member got a original rear brake plate, so it is all back together but while launching myself around the garden on it I managed to get a puncture.

The rack was a old battered one the I had to re weld and then cut down the side supports to get it fit. looks ok .

I was getting carried away in the garden, we have had a lot of rain and there was me doing the whole spin the rear wheel up while turning, a bit like a power slid great fun until i looked at the lawn with divets missing . i think it was the huge torque going through the back wheel that caused the tyre to spin on the rim . LOL.

Today i took a look at the puncture and it was caused by a bit of metal going through thee tyre. I have ordered a new inner tube but today i decided to have a go at fixing the puncture. I will let you know how i get on/

I think it'd look even better with a couple of army bags slung over the rack as panniers,as it has a sort of military look to it  Dave.

I think it looks good without the tool box fitted aswell,i could give your tool box a good home.laugh..............

Hi Jess,

Not sure about the panels yet, but like the idea of canvas panniers .

I have been having trouble with rear tyre clearance with my dodgy rear mudguard , and today i managed to find a rear D3 swing arm mudguard, so have took the plunge and purchased it, It was a bit expensive at £60 but i got a ten pounds off by using my nectar points, it has been sprayed grey and the paint looks good, when it turns up i will fit it and see what it looks like, if it don't look good it can always be resold. I don't really what to be cutting it about so the wide trials tyre will fit. I will just have to wait and see how it will all come together

Can't believe it has been four years, i got it out of hiding and got it running again, i now have someone to sign the photos so I will be applying for a age related number plate. I'm hoping to have all the paper work done before the national rally so i can use it in the trails event.  That should be fun. famous last words.
