There is a small problem with it but Christmas is getting in the way of fixing it.
The front callipers are stuck but I have picked up a good 2nd hand pair.
When the MOT is done I will give it a few short runs.
As I live on the edge of good biking country the Pennine's and I am looking forwards to the 1st run out on it
Very Happy .... Thank you for the welcome ... Very Happy

Welcome to the gang. The sticking front brakes may be a brake hose instead. in would not release clean when you got on the brake hard. Turned out to be the brake hose breaking down inside.

After putting on the fresh callipers there is a problem with one of the brake pipes.
Well as long as its OK for the start of the Round Britain Rally on the 2nd of April and the start event.
But I think I will use my 2nd Bike on the Welsh road rally
I would like to wish all the people a good New Year and safe riding

Up date
The brake pipe was braking down in side so a new set of braided hoses now fitted

Now got a brake but not too good and hard to bleed and abs light still on

After a short run the Master cylinder was leaking on the strip down the brake fluid had crystallize

All cleaned up and new sealed fitted now it needs fitted and testing
