    Just modded the Zee derailleur with an old One Industries Rad Cage.
    That should let it handle the 40t cog nicely.

    Chain arrived today and once I get the forks back from having the brake mounts faced, it should be rideable...

    Helmet time is the best kind of time.

    The best tyre ever.
    Amazing where you can get to with them.

    Shimano 685 11 speed brake/shifters, Wolftooth Tanpan SH11 so I can use an MTB 10 speed clutch mech, One Industries Rad Cage on the Zee mech to clear the cogs.
    It's a bit dodgy on the 40t, so I think I'll be using it as a 10 speed 11-35 cassette with a 40t spoke protector.
    May even go from the 36t front to a 34t which will let me move the chainline in a couple of mm.
    I don't do high speed stuff , so top end isn't so important.

    It rides quite well.
    Now to test it out on gravel and fine tune the bar/shifter position/height and find my 42mm tyres. They're in the Emporium somewhere

    It's going to a good home where it can be around other Gilera's and reminisce about the old days of dyno runs, drag racing, Rainbow, Takaka Hill, MX tracks, Moutere Hills off roading, Maungatapu...

    And one day, it'll get the nads thrashed off it again

    Got the fork seals done on the FransAlp today.
    Apparently that was the blackest, dodgyest oil he'd ever seen come out of a pair of forks
    It's his old boss's old bike...

    Oh well, about time I had another. It's been a few years.
