Hi all, been doing some more upgrades to the Bim. The seal in the the clutch master cylinder has given up the ghost, the lever has been been loosing the amount of useful travel for some time. Meaning that I had become rather adept at selecting neutral whilst still rolling along. I had tried to get a seal for the Brembo cylinder cylinder without much success. Therefore I upgraded the old coffin pot style master cylinders to Accossato radial master cylinders. Just finished the job this afternoon, the bike has always had very strong brakes, this has only been improved with the light wheels and other improvements I have made, when I last weighed the bike it weighed in at around 155kg with a gallon of fuel onboard. Not exactly convinced of the weight as was using bathroom scales under the front and back wheels. However I digress the braking is awesome whilst I have no problems with the bike poping its nose in the air, I am not a great advocate of the "stoppie". These can be achieved with relative ease using two fingers I can lift the rear end quite easily. If you are thinking of a something similar here are some pics.

Thanks for the compliment. If you are ever in the UK or when I am abroad we can meet and you can have a ride on it, I think it is as pretty as a picture and it handles superbly. Made a number of modifications hopefully for the better. Pleased that you like it.

Regards Glen
