Hi,
What brand is that "Sahara Black" Powder? Would love to pick some up.

Thanks!
John

Hi John, not sure what the brand is mate, all I know is "Sahara Black"! A quick google looks like it's Jotun brand. http://www.jotun.com/vn/en/b2b/colours/powder-colours/sahara_effects/

OK, so it's been quiet on the update front, but not quiet on the actual doing things front. Been learning to weld for the last few weeks, and thanks to a fellow on the SOHC/4 forums I now have a rust-free frame again!




Next stage is hardtail (not welded on yet):



I've also been polishing and painting various bits and bobs:







I've dropped the front shocks down, now just waiting on new seals for reassembly. All my goodies from Cycle X came through so the engine is off getting bored and honed etc, should get that back in the next few weeks and I can start reassembling the engine. Hopefully in the meantime I'll get the frame fully welded up and will have a rolling chassis together!

Douglas?


Hope that's your name, and not the now defunct motorcycle company?

OK, so there has been much progress in the last few weeks, not least of which is getting all the documentation/forms etc filled in with the transport department to get approval to even begin this project.. long story, but they've recently changed the laws here and you now have to apply to do any mods before you actually do them. "Please sir, can I mod my bike?" Anyway, one 12 page submission (and 4 weeks of bureaucracy) later I've got the official go-ahead (dunno what I was going to do if I didn't!). In the meantime to engine has been with the engine guys getting it bored out, honed and the new valves guides installed etc... that's been gone for 5 weeks... hopefully getting it back this week...

So in the meantime, I've been welding!









I figured it best to repair the entire frame (no more Franks Frame Kit - got one spare if anyone needs one?) in case they engineers didn't like it. Give them as little to complain about as possible I think. Rebuilt forks, lowered with new seals etc, tapered steering stem bearings, new brake piston and seals, a bit of paint... viola! Almost looks like a motorcycle...

Tasmania. But I believe the laws were changed here to bring them in line with the rest of Australia.
