panel damage ...such a pain !!! ...happened whilst moving in plastic storage containers …. not enough packing and too many things in the same box  … the lower panels came off worse ...but blemishes and scratches abound .


oh well... time for a fresh coat of paint and finally  clear coat in a few days

bit of mucking around , waiting for paint to dry

just thought to throw the empty gearbox im intending to use on the back of the motor , to check continuity of finish


looks reasonable I guess  (done some time ago now ) ill populate that box in the coming weeks




and el cheapo thread repair kit arrived , thread fitted , and installed , all tightened up beautifully




think ill make a box out of wood , about the same height at if the engine is sitting on the centre stand = 8.5 inches

and move the assembly out to where I can throw the frame over it, in the garage , once finished enough to run

that way I can install all the driveline ,. and engine running components , all mounted up, in preparation

now to prepare for the KRR down dungog ways this weekend

I like this thread - I keep a snapshot of Charlie's engine in my head, and pretend it's mine when I'm visualizing my latest project.

Agree. If I am not mistaken, possibly illegal.
Serial numbers help identify bikes.

Chanhanging the serial might also create legal issues.
If you referring to the VIN,  it’s definitely illegal to alter.
Just my opinion.

Cheers

the sump is the only thing being changed ...all the rest, original , even within a thousand in the engine serial number (same week , year and engine designation )

Can't see a problem. It's your engine, you can write on it what you want. VINs are different.

In the UK it would only be an issue if you had done it to fiddle the point-scoring system when applying to the ministry to re-use the identity (i.e. the registration number/plate) from a donor vehicle.

I was taught to use the dictum: 'where's the evil?' This always helped in real-world policing.
