very nice work, the lines of that bike look spot on.  I bet you can't wait to get a motor it place to ride it!  Are you going with a high pipe? It would really suit.

Thanks mate,  the engine will be stripped, cleaned, painted and new gaskets fitted this weekend.  The covers are already polished so I hope to get the engine back in early next week.  I have two weeks off work and should get a big chunk of the build done.

Cheers, I agree that a high pipe would really suit the bike.  Unfortunatley I've bought a new original pipe.... but when the build is finished I think I will get a high pipe.

I'm jealous of your roller. I've been waiting for a month for my new swing arm bushings to arrive before I can get there. Looking really good dude.

Thanks Shamus, I'm looking forward to watching your build progress, if the grips are anything to go by, it's going to be a work of art.  Did you manage to get that Jade?

I did get the Jade, its tougher to work with than I thought, but I have faith I can make it happen. Thank you for the kind words, I hope the bike lives up to your expectations! Haha.
