Been working way too hard on the study lately, so I decided to 'take a day off' for a change. It was drizzling all day but I found some stuff I could do on the bike inside. I replaced the left handle bar controls, polished both controls (I did a very rough polish, I want the bike to be a little rough). Also replaced the brake pump by the one I bought at the Veteranen Treffen in Woerden. It's a lot smaller and it has a build in brake light switch, so now I'm able to drop the headlight a bit further. A lot of work and not very much to show for:

How could I not?
Please don't tell my girlfriend ;)
I went to the Veteranen Treffen in the city of Woerden. Never been to that meeting before, but I will most definitely be there again! The weather was sunny with some rain, but the rain didn't spoil teh event at all. I have never, ever before seen so many cool bikes in one day. Urals, Panthers, Ariels, Vincents, Benneli's (sei!), Nortons, BSA's, Nimbus's (Nimbi?), Velocette etc... etc... Most of them didn't even come on a trailer! Admission to the event was low and it was obviously meant for everybody, not just motorfanatics. It was a sight to behold, not to be photographed. My photos really don't do the event justice.

Sorry for the poor quality, I really was too busy looking at the bike and didn't take the time needed to take pictures with an analogue lens.
There was a small market section as well. Found a nice brake pump with sensor and 4 exhaust clamps for the CB.

and made a headlight bracket. After getting used to it for a few minutes I decided it looks really cool. Would have been nice if the headlight would have been just a little bigger, but it isn't. The photo doesn't really do the headlight justice though.
I'll have to find a new master brake cylinder with an integrated brake light switch, than I'll be able to lower the light a bit further.
That's it for now, back to the study....
