Had minor accident last weekend (not bike related) and can’t ride at the moment so consoled myself fitting engine bars, hand guards and relocating the horn and my Drift Ghost XL camera over the weekend.

Restoration almost complete. but
Still waiting for the Cardellino petrol tank to be returned from the Painter.
Itching to get the bike running.
So I thought I would rig up a temporary petrol supply, so how about this one–is this the first Cardellino using fuel injection!!!



Yes the bike started and ran well–just a slight mechanical carb adjustment required. No need for the laptop to be plugged in!!!

Wishing you a swift recovery - hope your not in too much pain.
Crash bars did their job okay?

Thanks for the good wishes - fortunately it was not a bike related accident so the V100 is unscathed! Just me that suffered but much cheaper to fix with a few stitches and plasters :grinning:

Finally got the centre stand from Hepco & Becker fitted today - excellent quality.

Hi paulc911
Its on my list of additions for my V7 850. What was it like to fit?
Cheers
Jim

@jc59 It was very straight forward to do. The instructions could have been a little clearer so I did have to email Motobins for some technical advice which was swiftly replied to. In essence on the V100 you fit two plates (one on each side) behind the foot-peg hangers and then the main stand bolts directly to these with metal bushes (remember to grease these). The most challenging bit is attaching the two springs - I put the bike up on the centre stand to keep it solidly in place and hooked the springs on to the plates and then used a screwdriver to level the other end down on to the lug on the stand. Probably half an hour / forty minutes in total. Be quicker the second time round. Really pleased with the quality and feel of the stand and the bike feels really solid on it. :+1:

Hi Phil, The Nook is a really nice cafe. The other really good cafe in Alston is Hickins, otherwise known as the Crossings cafe, down by the old railway station in Alston. I’m hoping to ride up for a longer day out from York to Alston and Hexham this week….or next if the weather remains a bit grim as it’s the views make that ride special.

Still cold down here in sunny Leicestershire. This was at the Rose & Crown in Zouch, on a recent rare dry evening. What an awful Spring it’s been for riding, and it’s midsummer day soon !
