67 B44 first ride

Hello all,
Finally got the bike finished and took it for a run round a local track. Front suspension bottoms out very easily. Would like to find out how these forks can be improved as I don't want to fit betor/ ceriani type.

Thanks lads.
The track is in Fife. It is a bit ripped up at parts giving the old BSA suspension a hard time. That part shown on the video is about the best section.
Cheers

Looks and sounds excellent Neil.
From your riding position ..... maybe a taller set of bars would help. I have been struggling to find anything taller than 6"1/2
To make my CCM right, a set about 7"1/2 - 8" would be perfect. Just like the originals.
All we need is someone to make some.
