Default The Unforgotten

It was probably forgotten about by everyone except me. It's been lurking in A Shed for years, but I picked it up on a 300 mile round trip and it's now in the New Garage.

Hoping that this'll be a (relatively) cheap bike to finish and a (relatively) quick build... Ha! Who am I fooling?...

Astoundingly, as well as looking at the other projects (well, looking at is about as much as I've done) I've also looked at this one.
Took the covers off, realised that it sat too low at the rear end, and sussed that it needs shorter dog bone linkages for the shock...
(and yes, that top pic is bloody rubbish, my phone battery was almost flat and it was copping the hump...)

why shorter dogbones rather than shimming the top?

A steering damper dampens steering oscillations. If it starts to leak, it may become a steering dampener. There's no such thing as a dampner.

Yan and Robbo spotted it - no adjustment left. I want the dogbones of a length so that it sits perfectly at the maximum height available from the adjuster, so then I can slam it right down if I want to play at the drag strip...
