Okay Charlie, I've got to ask.
Just how many original K bikes do you think have contributed parts to this labour of love? Not just the big bits; I mean right down to the rubber grommets and bracketry.

It's weird to think that they all left the factory at different times, in different directions, on different bikes, and did different things for a few decades before being tossed aside and, then....

Or is that just me?

took a trip over to Inverell today looking for some bits, and called into the spares place for some stainless screws - washers etc

Bill had mentioned interest in the braided brake lines,  and I found the range of colours for the ferules that fit into the glands at both ends of the cables



heres a pic of the ferules but missing the black - available but not pictured at this moment

blue
aluminium
purple
green
yellow - gold
red
black


reminder of what mine looked like after being made

reworked a couple of right hand switch mechanisms last night

declared the one I had to hand as fritzed , with a melt event on the main beam cable termination - contact point ..(plastic mounting distorted and no - poor plastic behind it ....) will keep for parts .....but reworked another I had on hand
fixed start button (broken off ) kill mechanism , and reworked some of the internals , swapped button plastics  from parts to make a working unit

now cleaned, tested and lubricated , with some position spring action on the main light slider switch

rejected one

reminder to all ,
disassemble inside a plastic bag ...those tiny spring leap for freedom at the first chance ....giggle

I have restored a few in my time but not to these very high standards. Most interesting.
