Oh boy ........... one very happy Beachcomber here !
Twin plug head is completed and awaiting my collection [ with the rest of the '81 engine ].
The good news is that the guy who did the deed for me borrowed the relevant jigs from the instigator - and was then given permission to duplicate the jigs for his own use.
He won't be creating a production line anytime soon - but has the wherewithall if anyone's interested ? The only problem is that he no longer has access to his machine tools etc. as he's changed jobs. However, he is getting a quote from a local friendly machine shop to see if it's viable to get the conversions done.
I have decided on the Norvil 1/2 fairing.

Progress looking good CC ! I recently went through the caliper / brake refurb game - only to ditch it all with the swap to the Grimeca and XS650 drum rear . I'm following your rearset installation with interest as my bike is [ has ! ] morphed into that 60's Cafe Racer now rather than a Flat Tracker. Keep those pix coming - inspirational !!

"yep, nostalgia ain't what it used to be"

Looks great BC.   Those pics answer a few questions I had about the dual plug heads.   Now for the ignition questions.....      :)
