Someone will be happy now we have boots on starter relay. All the wiring being set up to be easily removed for racing. One plug and one M6 bolt and the tail light and plate is off.







Certainly getting closer...



There's also still one piece of wiring in one of those photos that I did. Too good to replace.

Thanks Shaun - Tom Eatman says he's got some - they were certainly more popular in mainland Europe than the UK. - Regards - Phil

A while back I rebuilt a pair of 38mm Ceriani forks and sold them to Maurice. He now has them on a bike and says they work really well. He reckons they're much better than an identical pair of forks on one of his other bikes. They had nothing fancy like emulators in them, just the basic old Ceriani damper rods. The only "custom" thing I did was to polish the insides of the fork stanchions and machine up new pistons for them with only a couple of thou clearance. I only did that because the old cast alloy pistons had expanded and were tight. I could have just turned them down to size but one of them I had to drive out with a hammer and drift, and it was fucked by the time it came out.  I figured if I was making one piston, I may as well make two. There was a slight difference in bore diameter of each fork leg. It was only a few thou, but I made the piston clearances so close that larger piston wouldn't fit in the smaller bore.

Anyway, perhaps the secret to getting Cerianis to work well is to set them up with polished piston bores and nice billet pistons with minimal clearance. 

BTW, the internal polishing was done by spinning the stanchion in the lathe chuck while shoving a broom handle in and out about a million times with various types of polishing contraptions on the end of it. Starting with emery paper, then steel wool, kitchen scouring pad and finally a soft mop with polishing soap.  Kept it up until the insides were nice and shiny (they were a bit dull and rough looking to start with). Seems it may have been worth the effort.
And quite right is Cam these forks are fantastic they are progressive and compliant and perfect for what they are I would never try and transform a pair of 1970s forks into a modern equivalent.
You would be better off buying a monster like Terry has done Vince.
