Thundercat freshen up

Post  Radar on Fri Sep 02 2011, 00:23

My trusty Thundercat is now 13 years old and the time has come to treat the old girl to a bit of a tidy up over the coming winter. I will plan to do the following:

Rear suspension:

Remove, clean an regrease. I might get the shock rebuilt too...I know a man who can.

Front Suspension:

New fork oil, regrease and adjust steering head bearings

Brakes:

Braided lines and new fluid

Carbs:

Remove, clean. Balance

Exhaust:

Clean and re-paint the down pipes

Consumables:

Oil/filter and a new back tyre

Hopefully this should freshen the old girl up noticably, especially the cornering and handling.

I will post a few updates and pics as I progress through.

First job though is to make some room in the garage to do the jobs!

Looks like you've got your work cut out there!

Hopefully the winter will be mild and you won't be too cold working out there.

Last 2 winters have been freezing & the reason I have not got round to the strip down and paint. Maybe this winter. Hope all goes well with the work & keep us posted on the progress.
