Perfect for a cafe racer......   :-)


I suspect autocorrect changed Koni into Kona .
Hahaha.  I didn't even notice that.

Got the tunnel and all the patch panels welded in today, also tacked the front mounts in place. Still need to weld in the fuel tap spigot and the balance pipes, but I've run out of Argon so that will have to wait until next week.

It's pretty much sitting where I want it so the next thing is make the rear loop and then the seat mounts. When that's finished I can make the rear tank mount, which I will use in conjunction with a standard old Yamaha DT/MX rubber grommet. I will need to make a master list of all the different bits and pieces I have used to facilitate replacement in the future, should the need arise.

Back home from work again and finally finished the rear loop. I have to make up the rear taillight mounts, the rear blinker mounts and the shock mounts and it will all be good. I then need to manufacture the battery box and mount it in place and then get on with the main footrests.

Have to say this is a fantastic looking build. If I had half the skills (and equipment for that matter!) that you have I'd be a very happy bloke.
Keep at it.

Thanks Paddy.
Unfortunately I work overseas, which is why it takes so long, but looking forward to getting it finished and on the road.

Whoo-hoo, got my Kona (Koni, haha) shocks today, and they look great. Going away for work but they'll be waiting for when I get back...

Haha.  I'm drinking some right now.
