Anybody got any suggestions what silver paint I should use on the clutch cover and rocker box cover?
I've got some silver Hammerite in aerosol and paintbrush format but don't know how temp resistant it is.
Has anybody renovated their engine with a good silver Paint??

Well I've done enough to stop the rot and put it on the road, booked an MOT for Weds 31st and if it passes I'll tax it from 1st Nov.
I was going to do a more thorough resto, but due to change in circumstances (Wife wants to move on now the Lad's gone to Uni), I just wanted a rolling bike with MOT rather than have boxes of bits.


As I know you all enjoy a laugh: Last owner had dropped the forks through the yokes by about 50mm, so the last job I did was to drop them back down to about 2mm above the triple clamp (for WyleeCoyotee).

Tightened it all up again and managed to crack the top yoke at the LH side pinchbolts. Bought another yoke off Ebay for £25. no bother I thought, easy swap....
Well Mr Honda has other ideas because the ignition switch is attached to the underside of the yoke with anti-tamper bolts.

About 8 drill bits and 4hrs later I managed to get the bastard ignition switch off after minor physical injuries to myself including a nose cut in 2 places where a drill bit shattered and flew up (was wearing safety specs) and drilling a hole in the top of my middle finger. That injury actually had me pacing up and down the outhouse yesterday afternoon.

Then today it fell over off the section of railway sleeper I had put under the frame rails, but amazingly there was no damage whatsoever other than to a mirror and I had new ones anyway!


I think I should branch out into instructional videos on YouTube. Instructional with regard to English expletives and 1st aid in the home.

Anyway all Ok now.

Cheers Lads, it's actually a result if it passes the MOT and it all seems ok, so should do.
I've only been up the driveway on it and god the front brakes are feeble considering it's a double-disversion. I've been all over it with brake cleaner & fettled the calipers etc. (and, yes I pumped them back up). You'd literally be better off with a parachute.
I'll be after £30 worth of sintered summat.

Probably sticking pistons in the calipers or maybe pads are glazed/contaminated. I take it you’ve cleaned the discs with brake cleaner and some say soapy detergent water to degrease.
