Simple bolts on things i would suggest would be, extractors and exhaust, electronic ignition, weber carby, and a thermo. All are fairly simple mods and can be done one at a time when you have the money to do so.

Cheers Tom

Toms ideas are all very good and the cheapest and essayist to do add to that get a yella terra head with the bigger valves ..

a 202 dose have more get up and go standed , but are not as long lasting a 186 is alot more reliable and handles more revs better..
