Congratulations!

You will need a bearing puller for that one bearing in the gearbox that is only accessable from the one side however.

I'm guesing the crank bearings feel kinda crappy? :cry:

I think I have located a puller that will do the job

Yes crappy bearings indeed. I'm thinking about having the cases vapour blasted as I'm not making much headway cleaning manually with the generator side crankcase.
I took the cylinder to the rebore man and we wait for a new piston ; 69.5 ; to arrive.

As for the rest of the bike; Well I did find a pair of skinny tyres, city demons from a bloke nearby who is restoring a Zundapp and still racess classic bikes at 78 y/o. I fitted the rear but still waiting for wheel bearings, brake parts, sprocket and cush drive.

Otherwise the frame sits sadly in the corner as my first priority is to get a functioning engine
