Had this dropped off today.  In 16 weeks, it has to be prepped and race ready for the Manx Grand Prix.   It was a spares bike for the black / yellow bike in the second picture, which I painted for last year, but now it's going to be a fresh bike for 2017.

I think I'll start a thread / blog for that one and update it at the Isle of Man

Righty ho. I'll wait till we get started and post updates over the coming weeks.  The bike is a low mileage ZX6-R and not so bad as the engineless state it's currently in would suggest.

Lots going on in my shed too! Just got back the wheels from being built....and again thanks for the Grimeca TJ! Will be starting on that bike properly soon and, like Mark, will probably start a seperate thread.....

I'll be starting it in a week or so TJ but am also making more frames and putting a Triton together as well so it'll be a bit sporadic!
If I had the time for it though I'd be buying this....

And then building a frame for it like this....would make a lovely bike!

I saw that one too....same importer as the red one. I'm sorely tempted to buy it but have too much on really....badly want to make a frame like the one in the pic and even went so far as to try a piece of tube to see if my bender could manage the bend above the cylinder head....which it can!!
