Bad News i'm Afraid

Whilst putting oil in the gearbox yesterday a major leak was found from the mainshaft , further investigation found other faults with the Gearbox so i'm now waiting on the box to be delivered to my local specalist mechanic so it can be tore down and the price of all the replacement parts costed up 

At this current time however as i hadn't thought this problem would occour i havn't got the required funds so for the time being at least things will have to go on a backburner whilst i get the funds to have the Box rebuilt 

all being well i'm hoping now that the bloody bike will now be on the road sometime towards the end of September as this is the earliest i feel i will have the money to pay for everything required to finish it off 

kinda learnt a hard lesson here when buying secondhand parts on ebay don't trust anyone 

yer i'm pissed off and feeling a bit down but i'll bounce back up and the fucking bike will be done this year its just gonna cost a bit more and take a bit longer

Sorry to hear about the problems Pug. Sometimes the speedbumps are there for a reason. Good Luck.
