As a minimum you should have photos of both sides of the bike, the Engine Number, and the Frame Number. If you have any original Bills of Sale or Service documents then this will make the job much easier. In fact, any dated information you can supply on your machine will make your case that much stronger.

Now I have it back, but it is still not good enough. The base line of the seat that I had worked so hard to get right still appeared uneven!

How could that happen? You can see here the uneven line has reappeared. Here is one cause where there is some brown material under the seat cover serving no purpose.

There are photos below of the seat on the bike. After I had fitted it I tried to start it with no success for a long time. After some thought I realised that I had fitted the float bowls on the wrong way around. This means that it will not start if the right float bowl above is on the left carb because it does not have the drilling for the fuel to enter the choke circuit as can be seen below.

Right side of completed bike. Left side of completed bike. I gave the bike a test ride for a few miles and it seemed to run OK except that the front braked squealed. I took the brake plate out and saw that the brake cam was not flat against the brake shoe as you can see here. Martyn Whittington also suggested that I roughen the friction surface of the brake shoes.

Here you can see the treated surface and the untreated surface. Right that should sort out the squeaking. Brake plate on and front wheel in and off down the road again. Not a blind bit of difference! I will see if it gets better with a few more miles. The left headlight bracket was very close to the tank on full left lock as you can see. On the right there was about 2mm clearance. I used extra rubber spacers where the tank locates on the frame rubbers to solve this problem. Sorry no photo of this.

Some are snags are easier to sort than others! It will be more interesting than it seems right now!
