New and Green...Brit!


Due to a burst of na´ve enthusiasm, I have just become the owner of 2 KLR650s (both 1989), 3 engines, 1 engine in bits and box loads of spares. I've always ridden and tinkered with bikes (currently have a nice Yammy Fazer 1000) and thought I'd like a project...I suspect I've bitten off more than I can chew. However, I have nothing to loose other than space in my shed, skin on my knuckles and many hours.

I suspect I'll be seeking your advice!

Thanks in anticipation


PS - I'm a brit!
