Thanks for the info, appreciate it. I actually asked for a slightly lighter color blue, but i think this would work alright too. Im getting everything besides the tank back tonight, so looking forward to start putting some of it together.
 
 
 
I'm just catching this build Mr. I like that color blue, but it can be tough to pull it off on the frame. So I wanna see you do it!


As far as the tires go, you will be limited by the width of the wheels. Avon's are a really good choice but here's a little chart to point you in the right direction for sizes: http://www.dropbears.com/u/utilities/tyrerim.htm

Seems to be a problem area then. Hows your paint work coming along? Im getting all the little bits back tonight, and finalizing the stripes on the seat. And the tank is still getting repaired. So hopefully wont be too long before i get everything back for assembly. Are you kepping the origional wiring harness?
 
 
Same damn thing happened to me with the kickstart. I had it installed turned 180 degrees so it would never disengage. 'Twas frustrating since I found out after the engine was already in the frame. The good thing is that you can access the kickstart without disassembling the head. Saved a bunch of time.

The paint is going pretty slow at this point. The painter was pretty backlogged and is just starting it now. Latest reports point to being totally done in about two weeks. I can't wait to get it back. I'll post tons of pics when it's back.


I replaced the coils and the condenser, got a modern solid state rectifier and made my own wiring harness. I took a lot of the electrics off like the electric starter and the turn signals, so I didn't need a lot of the original harness. My wiring is really simplified, and it still turned out relatively complicated. I'm happy with how it turned out though. I like the simplicity of it. If something goes wrong, I can pretty much fix it right away which is awesome.


Are you painting the seat yourself?

Yeah im planning on doing my own harness aswell. I had the seat painted as well, he asked me to come by to confirm the stripe. I got it (and a bunch of other bits) back today, so really excited  ;D  Will post pics

So last minute i decided against the silver and went with a pearl white, and i think it was a good decision. Still just waiting for the tank and fork covers.

In the meantime ive been working on upholstering my seat. First i grinded the edges off the seat for the look i want. I used a steel grade epoxy to keep the flange nuts in place. I decided the nuts would be better on the top part rather than the bolts because it would be easier to get the vinyl wrapped underneath. Ive already covered the seat with polyurethane foam, and just waiting for the glue to dry.

The blue and white is just like my Gladius :) , the blue is awesome. Is it rattle can? If so, what colour? I may need some for a project I'm working on for the Gladius and it looks like a good match.

Thanks, I like the GT40 scheme you've got going. I was actually thinking about those colours as an option.

Thanks. No i had it painted. I tried rattle canning it myself, but the paint just chipped too easily, even with epoxy enamel. Funny, i actually asked for a lighter blue, but i like this more  ;D
