Supercheap have the Rislone Head Gasket Fix in their current catalogue too, about $55,
as well as that Radiator Fix you posted the link for
Not very favourable reviews for that head gasket fix apparently its the exact same as the copper one they make in a different bottle for twice the price....

Yeah my old man has almost the exact same one. Been around as long as I can remember.

Damn that engine came up sweet.

Do you have a whole panel beating workshop out the back of your place? lol.

thanks,
yeah i can picture it bobbed out.

i might make up another base gasket for the barrel, it will open up the exhaust port another mm.
possibly do a bit of port work too if my new rotary tool arrives...
i need to buy more sand too.

i just finished connecting up the wiring on the PY, so that's another job out of the way.

Wow, that bike looks almost like new, I can't believe the progress it's made from that crusty old bike! Well done, wish I was this talented!

thanks,
but i've had plenty of practice restoring all sorts of things.
the worst thing doing it from home, is my shed doesn't have to power to run a decent compressor.
so most of the sanding and painting is done by hand, and pressure pack paints.
