It took me a couple of hours to get it out, had 6bikes outside @one point Shocked But it did give me a chance to sweep the floor a bit Laughing
Managed to squeeze an extra bike into my other shed too Shocked Very Happy

Well made a little progress today, got the frame stripped completely out
It was really dirty



After a bit of time with the degreaser and hose pipe its looking a bit better



Cleaned a few more bits and bolted them on, need to paint a few parts before i fit them and most things need cleaning up as they are filthy but this is not intended to be a concours rebuild, i just want to have it looking clean and tidy
This is as far as i got with it today

Thanx Smile
I bought this off a friend about 2 1/2 years ago, its been sitting at the back of my shed waiting to get cleaned up, i did rob a load of bits off it to put on another RGV that i sold a while ago Confused
I have noticed that people are valueing there Strokers higher recently, nearly every AD you see says "rare" and the prices are bumped up Confused

Lovely bike! I also prefer the 21 to the 22. If i were ever to buy a suzuki i reckon i'd go for a 21 as there is no way i can afford a 23 lol.

Keep up the good work!

Dan
