https://i.ibb.co/Drs5vrP/IMG-20201010-120509.jpg So err, got the fairing fitted finally. Looks like the problem was caused by the fairing having been off the bike for 20 plus years, or more specifically, the fairing not being on the bike when it went for the MOT. Funny how the brain belatedly remem...

I would love to report that i am making great progress with my vehicles but... After my wife encouraged me that I should finally get round to restoring the Lada - she then said "if you are going to spend time and money on the Lada, I want chickens". So i'm not really allowed to work on it till I've ...
