    the clutch is very very light totaly diferent to modern day ones no slip and gear select was smooth . brakes a little dry as to say but better after a bit of usage . just before laid up i had a set of areoquip steel hoses fitted and new front suspension rebuild so these parts were like new if not just wanting to be woken up . tyres were also new when parked up . what was amazing they were not flat or below pressure .
    shes just looking old and needs a clean but no rust and all solid

    I drove next to a chap with a 70,000 Mile 900 Cornetto slipping the recalcitrant clutch as we approached a junction. Rattle bang snatch rattle it's amazing how these bikes will still work even when quite worn out and he being a professional bike mechanic and all!
