Default rebuilt the chop

had an off couple of months ago, some twat walked out in front of me so I threw the bike down the road rather than flattening her (yes, I know I should have used her to stop the bike rather than the road but hey..) end result, couple f dings in tank couple of bent levers few cuts'n'bruises. So, thought it the ideal time for a rebuild and a chance to use the funky twisty Z bars that Jonno picked up for me.... and here it is...

IMHO it would look better if the bars were in line with the forks ..... but always liked the twisty springer front wheel in another postcode look.

yes, interesting is one way to describe the ride, it's a gas, but mini roundabouts are not fun at all
