So my so called 2165 turned out to be a pile of junk. Got 5kms out of it and it shit itself.

Ended up with hole in the piston. Took it apart under the watchful eye of Mr Berry and it's now on the shed floor in boxes. Rebuild with all new internals is on the cards when I save the $$$ hopefully get to do some of the rebuild with Matt supervising.

Hey as an aside when Di they swap from the twin rear lights to the single one that ran till late 60's? My 61 has the later lights but unsure if someone has chopped it up and swapped over, sorry don't mean to hijack thread
