Though Ed and I made the deal on the K1100RS months ago, the pandemic lockdown left me unable to leave greater Sydney to go and pick it up.  Once the new premier extended that lockdown again it made it even worse.

I've been aiming at getting it ready for Marie to take on the Northern Tablelands ride.

Work completed:

-Steering head bearings replaced (new FAG), fork oil at the same time as its easy then.
-Front calipers were sticky, so strip, inspect, clean, reassemble.  My Ultrasonic cleaner from Aldi made this job easy-peasy (Vinegar/water mix)
-New battery (310cca Motobatt (in black))
-There was a 'spare' Feather light clutch cable cable tied alongside the existing cable.  The Feather light has been fitted and clutch adjusted (properly, it had no freeplay at all) with the OEM retained in position as a spare.
-The front master cyl gave me hell.  Bore is good, seals look good, but one seal is too tight causing the piston to not return after depressed.  The sidecar gave up its' MC piston and seals for the project.  All working properly now.
-Rear brake light switch refused to work.  Again the sidecar gave up her working brake light switch.

Now all I need is a Blueslip for rego, just a formality really.  

It would have to be raining, wouldn't it!

Al

ps - pushing the sidecar to the back of the garage soon to await a few bits.

For those that aren't aware of the history, this was formerly Rosskos bike, then bought by Ed after his passing. So quite well known in the Aussie Krew. The bike has been out of use for a few years now.

It was great to see it out on the road last weekend.

Rawdon Ball (WA) was the original owner from our group. Rawdon bought it sight unseen from a guy in Sydney and asked the group here if there was someone who could pick it up and hang on to it till he could get over to collect it. Rossko volunteered of course and immediately started working on it.

Marie must like it.  Received a fast driving certificate(speeding ticket) in the mail!  She got done in the first 10 mins of riding it, less than 3km from our house.  One of the Maquarie Bank camera cars.

Obviously just getting used to the power, LOL.
