Owners Bikes, Dene Gorfin, bike 3, part 2

Here is the latest restoration update from Dene Gorfin:

"I have decided to make a start with the build even though still after some bits and some parts which turned up were wrong and have been sent back.
The forks and brakes on the bike are temporary while I wait for parts on the UK spec brakes/forks (twin caliper/discs) rather than the European single disc set up.
Rather a slow start as when I started to fit steering bearings noticed the lock stop on the frame had taken a hit so this had to be welded and then coated again.
While checking the engine i noticed the kick shaft was a bit thicker and wouldn't accept the kick start so that's another job to do.
Apart from that its starting to take shape, more soon!"
