Made a start on the engine. Cylinders would not come off the crankcases , a common problem with the GT 750. A home made lifter plate made short work of the problem. Crank going for a rebuild this week. We will blast and refinish the crankcases over the next couple of days.

This is how she looks now, running and back on the road. Needs a good clean and polish though. Will have a good shakedown run then back to her owner Trevor.
