More New Parts (Day 161)

The best thing to do in the winter is to get all your new parts ordered.  This is what arrived today:
I got 4 carb rebuild kits which have 18 pieces to them.  I have yet to discover where they go!  They came from a dealer in California (I am in UK).
And I have 2 new front brake pistons all the way from Canada.  This is certainly not going to be a green (low air miles) motorbike.

Another set of pipes (Day 157)

Purchased another set up pipes which arrived today from a UK supplier.  They are in better shape than my originals.  They have no scratches or road rash.  Very little surface rusting.  One of the silencers has a rattling baffle.  I think I am becoming a collector. (click image to enlarge)

Brake Piston Pitting (Day 156)

Just doing a bit of research on the brake pistons.  These are quite pitted and I need to know if they are salvageable or not. (click on images to enlarge)
