The Convert build is about done. Had it out for a longer, faster ride the other day and there is a small leak coming from the crank ventilation, so have to fix that.
However, a few months ago I had the opportunity to buy a Le Mans II for a fair price. Tarozzi rear sets, lower clip-ons, no fairing. The PO bought it as a non-runner and went through the engine and gearbox, put new seals and a new clutch in it. He also went through the brakes and started to clean up the butchered electric system but lost momentum. The bike have just sat for maybe 4-5 years now. It seems to be in fair mechanical condition, with a somewhat rough exterior.
I’ve decided to just get it on the road, I’ve already put original foot pegs and clip-ons back on. The Convert got a Motogadget m-unit and I was really impressed with the simplicity and functionality so I ordered that and some universal switch gear.
I also had a 850 Le Mans fairing laying around and I just can’t resist putting that on (I always wanted a 850 Le Mans, as everyone else…)
So, a quick and dirty on this one, hopefully not too many bad surprises.
Check/new fluids including brakes
Clean up carburettors and change throttle handle
New wiring (m-unit) including switch gear
Le Mans I fairing
