Built this little table os I could get the Hornet at a workable height as I intend to do all the little jobs i've been meaning to do over the last year....

* full service
* balance carbs
* clean and repaint engine (satin black)
* replace missing stud for exhaust
* remove exhaust, clean, and polish
* replace horn with new twin horns setup....

....and anything else i find along the way!!

That is a cool setup!! Will you be doing the carb balancing yourself? I'd be pretty interested to see some steps, pics ect on how this should be done ;)

Yup.... no problem.... I have bought the CarbTune Pro kit and will be doing this at some point over the next couple of weeks.... I will set up the Go Pro and put some video and pics up of the process.... :)

Great work, that Hornet is a real credit to you.

It's nice to see original Hornet's in such good condition, especially as our bikes are now heading into (well deserved) classic territory. :clap
