    I wouldn't expect anything less from someone who'd take a grinder to front brake discs

    Ohh, how very grandiose

    You can make cucumber sandwiches at the race track on the other side.

    I managed to make some time to kick the old girl over.

    Took quite a bit to get her started - always does if she has been sitting.

    Best yet, the clutch freed up once the oil was warm.

    Thanks to all for their advice and encouragement.

    Good stuff. Fuel can go stale over time. If I leave my bike for a while the first thing I do is drain the carbs and open the fuel tap and let it drain for 15 seconds or so before even trying to start the bike. The concrete wall trick for freeing up stuck clutches if it's been sitting a long time works a treat I've found in the past. If you have't got a file or sandpaper handy a moderately rough congrete surface will help tidy them up. A mable cutting board on the other hand just looks pretty. On second thought it could be used a baddock plate.

    Did you boil them to expand them pretty sure they used to do that also after they were fitted?
    Although that might have been as they used to use the ones from the Vino
