OK, my plans forma ZX6R radiator have fallen by the way side.  In the Box O' Shite (tm) I found the radiator.  It was actually pretty straight and in good order.  Better still, there was a nice stainless shield in there.  A good clean up, repaint the rad, and on it went.

Instruments mounted.  Made the bracket myself and painted it.  It looks a bit prominent up there in the breeze, but fear not as I have a plan.

Big up to my mate "Old Man" Mac who supplied the alloy plate.  He's a top bloke, even if he does smell of piss and cabbage.  He's a biker himself and is the father of the Yamaharley.  Here's his website...

And I've refitted the clutch and starter gear covers.  I'm particularly pleased with the finish on these.

Nice. SS allen bolts look good against black. Is that finish in clutch cover etc tin can paint? If so, do you know how it hold up ??
Run out of zip ties? Dental floss is an excellent alternative.

Its a fine spray bed liner from a can.  It's extremely tough.  The photos don't really domit justice - viewed directly it looks very similar to the Harley black crinkle finish, but a third the price and many times more durable.

Wasn't too happy with the clocks.  Too big and bulky.  A rummage through my Box O' Shite  (tm) revealed a small flyscreen, but that was still to small to hide the carbuncle that was the instruments.

So, had to put my hand in my pocket and get a mini speedo.  The idiot lights will be mounted either side, and you can see the mounting holes I've already drilled for those.

Thin thinking a Stack temp gauge can be mounted flush in the tank, but I will probably forego a tacho.

All work has come to a halt.  Its -8C in the workshop, and I'm a soft southerner.

 Thanks Bro.  I've not got the engineering talent equipment or budget of some guys in here, but I've done my best to keep it on target.
