Bearing that in mind, I decided to see my friend Hughie and seek his advice over the misaligned stop plate on my D1 Bantam. He took one look at the mounting lugs and remarked about the 'crap' way they'd been welded by someone!
I've left the frame with him and he's going grind the old welds from around the mounting lugs, tack them in the correct place, make sure it all works before completing the welding.
He also spotted the centre stand was 'centred' and will put that right at the same time. I'm only going to have it down once, so why not get it right? OK, I know it will coast me, but it'll be money well spent! We also looked at the colour, which is totally wrong, so I'll be redoing that as well.
