Looks really good and I know how much work it is. Of particular interest to me is what size wheels are they and what size tyres, an issue I am trying to sort out with my 79 Cali 1100.

Thanks      Jim

Jim,
       The wheels are 13" and I have 175/70r13 on the front and 195/6013 on the rear. I did have 195s all round but the steering was very heavy.

Oh! The photos make them look a bit bigger. My 79  has 14 inch Sunrasia rims and I thought the right thing to do was ensure I had the same rolling radius as the standard 13 inch, so fitted 185/55-14 tyres.  When bought(as a wreck) it was fitted with 185/70-14, I find now that the speedo is 6/7 klms fast and the revs are 4300 at 100 kph. It pulls top gear very easily, so maybe I need to go back to the 185/70-14, and get a little more ground clearance as a bonus.

Thanks      Jim

Why did you replace the rear mudguard?
I see you've changed the headlights back to original, was there much work in doing that?

Moemoke,
          I replaced the rear driver side wing because it had had a crash and 15mm of bog is not good. It was like that when I bought it and it was annoying me as it was drooping down on the outside by about 25mm so it had to go. I posted that on the 23rd Oct under rear wing replaced. The headlights were just spot lights and I had to get mini headlight bowls and sort out the fixing of them but that was years ago. Not a lot of work, fit them adjust them and away to go.
