Engine running...

Woo-hoo, got the engine running :-)
That is the first time it has run in years!

It ran a bit rough to start with, mainly due to the amount of oil I put down the bores, so the plugs oiled up and had to be cleaned a couple of times. It also blew some rust out of the exhaust system covering everything in its path.
So now going to change the oil and filter again as I initially run it with flushing oil, then run it some more.

Clean carbs...

The carburettors have now been re-built and mounted back on the bike. That's a major step forward to getting the engine running which I hope to do soon.
Here is a picture showing the before and after pictures of the carbs...
