Another thing is, the rear seat cowl is a little broken. Its not a big deal, but if they are not that expensive I could buy new one, if you know someone who is selling? Otherwise I might try to fix it, but it won't be that good. Also it looks to be a replacement from another bike. It was red before, but somebody painted it grey and installed it before the paint dried. Now I have not very small patch of grey paint on the rear seat, which needs to be reupholstered.
Aye, build up a smoother and shallower tang in Araldite. Doesn't need to be as clumpy and fragile as the original 3
