take your time and do it properly. If you find something and you just feel you should fix it, you better do. Don't be lazy and neglect and ignore it. Otherwise you're going pay a price for it later. Nothing is more disappointing than to take a freshly restored bike apart again to sort out a "known" bug. The target should be a reliably functioning machine. Looking forward to see your baby on the road early next year.
As far as the fork is concerned and as far as I can see this is a real piece of art. I strongly believe it is related to the top-condition of the UK-roads. Full-suspension is not required there, isn't it? You ought to think about saving a lot of money by NOT repairing the rear shocks.
All the best
Agree with your sentiments; everything is being stripped and fully assessed. Parts are only being re-used if they will give good service.
The front and rear suspension have been rebuilt with new damper units and I have fitted sidecar springs to the rear, taking advice from this forum.
Al bearings and seals are being replaced, including the crank bearings. I have also made a lot of stainless steel parts (they salt the roads here in the UK)
Main problems I had:
1 The front forks on the bike as I bought it were from a twin and it took me a long time to get hold of a set for a single at an affordable price.
2 Sourcing the correct headlight, now I have one.
3 Sorting out the generator from a box of bits I had, a very nice job done by Rolf.
4 Keeping the costs under control.
