Going through the bike getting him ready for this years fun. Needs the following:

New headrace bearings set
New brake discs (just checked them and down to 3mm -- s/be 3.5mm minimum)
Tax
MOT

Not quite so desparate but will like to do these also :

Front and rear wheel bearings set
replace all coolant hoses (i think theyre possibly original -- 20yrs old ???)

would like to get some alluminium panniers ........................

Then be able to afford to buy petrol to ride the bike :(

Anybody want to buy a kidney ? :toothy10:

how much for the kidney? ;)

power 2 you...will surely cost a bunch

parts are typically more expensive in your island for industrial parts. Did you note if the prices for standard honda parts translate on purchsing power parity? Meaning EUR/GBP?

havent looked into the full costs yet - scared i may have a heart attack , but have a rough idea.

Dont think there will be that big a difference between £ and eur for the bits i need. Plus i prefer to buy consumable parts from uk if any problems or need to send anything back.
