So this is where Iím at bit behind but plodding along.

Parts are off to powder. New swing arm bushes and dust covers have also showed up which is great news. All steam ahead so far.

Ok updates so far.
-we have a beautiful powder coated frame and bits and pieces.
-we have new bushes and swing arm bits.
-we have a seat getting finished off.
-we have a burning desire to get stuck in to the re build.


Before powder



After powdered stooooked
Bad shots sorry but it came out a treat


Seat prepped

And that's it so far. Next is a massive dime city order for headlight, shocks, fuel lines, new cafe racer DVD as aus sux and we can't get it here and a few more little odds and ends. And a order from cmsnl for fuel petcock and fuel cap.

Hopefully the updates will come along more often now.
