    As I'm fairly happy with the result of my last build this one is going to be a little more 'adventurous' - lol

    I purchased last year a NC24 as a spares bike which needed to be moved into another frame - as the title for that frame was destroyed.
    Now I have got another frame - yippee - I think...
    However I have no idea if the bike runs, so the idea at the moment is to get the bike running first - in the old frame & barely assembled, mainly to see if its worth putting the time in to fix it or scrap it.

    So stage one,
    Pull the carbs, - Ok maybe it was a stretch to think they would be fine - lol...

    However, a soda blast of the externals, a warm bath & clean internally, 1 x rebuild kit later, float heights checked & adjusted & they are almost ready to be installed.

    Hey Squirrel or Pete, what is the fork diameter and the center-to-center measure of the triple clamps?

    Oh and, what size is the front rim? 3.5x17?

    Needs fork seals 4 sure. we've had it running once since it was bought in March, badly at that. my buddy, the collector, doesn't really care if his bikes run or not. Lazy and he rides only about 4 day per season now.
