Newbie from a strangely sunny Scotland
« on: 21 July 2021, 12:28:12 pm »
How's everyone doing?
Got myself a boxeye as a first bike, enjoyed it before this lockdown crap. An essential worker so nowt really different for me!
Had the bike off the road for about 6 months doing the things the previous owner neglected, basically the full bike. Hopefully back up and running soon. Wasn't very mechanically minded, but with the help of the old Haynes manual and the Yamaha service manual, I'm getting better. Also added painting and bodywork repair to my repertoire.
Finding all the posts helpful, some of them are inspiring me to do other stuff but done and spent enough getting it where it is. Plenty to do in the future!
