Despite a very busy Easter long weekend, I still managed to find some time to spend in the shed!
With the replacement mirrors for Sylvie having not yet arrived, I found I had time to reorganise a bit in the shed.
Despite tidying the spare parts up from the floor, I still had a pile of tools on the right side of the shed near the door.
The blackboard was woefully outdated, apart from updating Erica’s name.
I decided it was time for a fresh start, so I cleared it and wrote new headings.
The next day, I decided I didn’t like the spacing i’d left on the right, so I planned the layout on paper and started again.
I also realised I still had some sorting to do and needed a bit more room to work on that seized engine.
I reorganised the left bench space a bit and picked up the stray tools on the bench in the process.
After another day spent mostly with family, I started sorting the loose sockets.
Having been motivated to get the Fizzer ready to start again by the possibility of a swap for a ZXR250, I put the battery on to charge.
While the swap fell through, I figure it’s time to see if I can finish another project, so I’ll be ordering both the A and B kits from litetek.co when my budget allows for it.
I also spent a fair bit of time time bagging and tagging the spare parts left over from the CB250RS parts transplant.
I stacked them neatly in the parts boxes and put heavier parts too large to bag on top to hold them down.
The smallest parts box went back on the shelf with an old soft rag on top before being tucked away under Erica’s final tank.
Despite it being a public holiday Monday, I finally got around to getting some copies of the keys cut for Scarlet, Erica and Sylvie, so I’m less worried about losing my one and only key for each of them now!
Over the next week I’ll try getting the Oxford heated grips off Rosie and installing them on Sylvie, as it’s getting quite cold in the mornings as autumn draws to a close.
Hopefully the mirrors will turn up too and both Sylvie and Erica can get a little closer to their respective original styles!
