I bought this 10 years ago. Done nothing with it. Was sprayed over and bits welded by someone in Spain during its life. Not sure what to do with it.

What are you thinking?

Looks quite solid, get it up and running and run as is?

Series 2 Street Racer - stick a set of drops on it and a kit the engine!
Wide boys look great with race paintwork too!

I started on the strip down. Not sure how to upload to photos to show on here.

Bolt on dampers?

When you add the picture you want to use the 4th option down IMG, left click on it (it will highlight in yellow) then paste (right click on here) that and it will show the picture. If you want to double check hit the preview button,before you hit submit to see what it looks like before you post,to make sure you've got it ;)
I am playing all the right notes, but not necessarily in the right order.

I'm on a hudl tablet.
Am not sure how to do it.
I'm thick.

I have rebuilt my forks.....I have fitted a new lower bearing race/cup. The original was slightly pitted. The new race is loose on the shaft ( story of my life ). When the bearing goes on which I presume is steel frame down the race spins as well as the bearing.
The forks I have are Spanish.
Do I need another bearing race? Are they different sizes?
