PS draining the last bit of petrol out took some tubing and a suck.  I had nearly forgotten how awful fuel tasts. That memory is fresh again :-)

Dutchy, 

When you drain the tank, instead of a suck, how about getting some paper towels? I have never had to taste gas, but when it gets low, I put on gloves and grab a few paper towels to soak in the rest of it. The last thing I wanna do is put gas fumes in my lungs, or gas in my mouth. 

That being said, it looks like you are doing a great job at making that old girl a new (virgin) again! Will be a great bike to ride I'm sure!! And a looker too!! Well done!!!
