Yet more Gold Star fettling

A spot more fettling on the Gold Star of late. It's nearly there, didn't make the deadline of getting it sorted in time to ride to Dijon though. That was probably a Bullet dodged - I'd forgotten just how far Dijon is away and four days' ride on a 350cc cafe racer wouldn't have been a lot of fun. The bike seems good now, the only problem left is that the Newby belt drive conversion has upped the primary gearing. With the standard final drive sprockets in place I'm geared for Bonneville. I can hit 70mph in first but barely pull fourth. At least it's an easy fix.
