Hello from beautiful Indiana. Sydney would be on my list of places to see, but since I don't fly I guess that won't happen. Pretty motorcycle.

Thanks a lot for the welcome gents, I really appreciate it.

Here's her original ad, https://m.facebook.com/story.php?story_fbid=1874116159530134&id=1493937544214666&_rdr

Progress to date,
- 30 year old tank clean (Evapo-Rust, tank in bike). Done, used 120 ping-pong balls to displace the Evapo-Rust which costs like $85 a 1.5 gallons. I needed 3 containers. Was more varnish & crud than rust... but still impressed with the Evapo-Rust impact.
- belts done (they were originals with cracking all around - so thank God they are out),
- Rear master cylinder, was actually rear brake pivot pin needing a good moly grease & clean. Done.
- air cut-off valves were "gummy". Done. No holes but they were perishing. Did this patiently with the carbs still assembled using 90deg #2 Phillips. I can only hope that the stuttering on accelerations was from shyte fuel & contamination. New fuel filters coming. New fuel line & clamps ready to go. Stabil added to full fresh tank of fuel.

Still To do,
- Tyres, dated them as '92 & '95 - could that be right for Elite II's?
- Speedo cable (I have it already)
