  1. Transalp
    Started to change the output shaft on my 700 XL. All the bolts holding the chrome heat shields and the painted heat shields were sized in so that took me around 4 hours to do, I’m a slow worker, drill out re-tap the holes and order new bolts. The rest went as I expected it to no real drama...

    After years of waiting (and converting my Transalp to as close to a RD04 as possible) I've finally got an RD03 here in the States. It's an early one with 0000996 serial number and looks to have come from Germany through the hands of my friend and collector/restorer, screen name "Ujeni"...
