Lookin’ slick @Midnicrow ; — love the white F4 1078RR. I’ve got the black B4 and always dreamed of having that match in the garage!

I can commiserate with the tourist riders. Sun’s out and so are the straightaway showboaters. Just means I have to go deeper into the canyons to get away from them! And remember: natural selection can be sped up by just a little bit of stupid.
Canyon riding must be fun!!

Today, I gave my oldest bike a full clean up and restoration. This bike is 30 year old, and the engine is even older... Tyres, brakes, cosmetic, bearings... All set now to be able to reuse it... This is about bike, right? 🙃 :)

I had a Zeus in my younger years. Same type of simple tension derailleur levers!! I’ll post my “Bike” that I ride soon!! Don’t we have a bicycle thread?

Replaced Yuasa battery very impressed for a novice and great guidance on what to do and not todo from from the forum. Took it for a 2 hour ride to ensure it is running and charging properly. Back home quick wipe down and tucked in.

Enjoy the great weather when you can.

While the front derailleur is simple tension lever, the rear one is already indexed: you hear the click distinctly when moving the tension lever...

Broke 130 MPH on a downhill out of the mountains this evening. Probably no big thing for you track guys, but there’s not a lot of triple-digit-worthy stretches in the canyons.

Been tracking my rides on a Garmin watch. Fun to see how well spikes in speed map to equal spikes in heart rate :D

Finally got parts back from the powder coater. I think this is how it should have come from the factory. Debating taking apart the rear brake lever and the shifter lever to do as well. Time will tell.
The pegs got coated in Anthracite, close match to the bodywork. Hard to tell from the pic but it makes them much more muted and blend into the bike as opposed to the bright silver they were. Exhaust cover looks slick.

Another day, another canyon. Gotta love summer weather, although the animals love it too. Found a deer and her fawn coming out of a switchback. 50’ closer to the exit and that would have been rough.

As an aside, starting to put orders in for some new vinyl. Excited to get the classic Meccanica Verghera logo onto the bike, and I backed it with the championship stars for a bit of added depth. Planning to put it on the carbon fiber passenger seat cover, so the silver and red should POP. Will share the final product once done.

Almost finished...
My B4 aluminum radiator shrouds always bothered me. They are factory stamped pieces with poor specs. NOW they are hand finished with adjusted lines, fine-tuned curves, and edge treatment. They actually line up. Who will notice? Me. Maybe you, no certainly you. I have a couple more details to finish. Pics will follow.

Ordered a billet Moto Corse stand in silver (standard one freaks me out it lists over so much!!) and some CPC metal fuel connectors.

Mine's a bit temperamental on stone cold starts so I can anticipate some remedying will be required. I'll be trying a different battery and putting fresh fuel in. 8 miles ago in October 2018, the bike was sent to Xbikes for poor starting issues and had contaminated fuel removed and a new fuel filter/hose etc fitted in tank (and fresh fuel added which will now be over a year and a half old) so I'm hoping I don't really need to go internal. Will check the air filter and check/change plugs too while it's apart. The rear brake feels like it needs bleeding as it feels quite dull.

I haven't ridden it outside of the drive, MOT on Saturday!
