I used some aluminium stock to create some small arms to tie the two gauges together and connect them to the underside of the machined triple clamp. I will stick with these for now, likely redesign in the future.
Thought i would put a few parts on and take some photos in the sun.

Welded up a quick stand to get the motor up where i could clean it, following a serious degrease and clean i then sprayed the cases. and began polishing parts

Decided rather than buying new rear shocks that i would have a go at rejuvenating the originals, removed the rust with coke and 00 steel wool, sprayed the springs with Killrust epoxy enamel and polished the struts.

Shocks are looking nice and tidy, as is the motor!

Don't see many 250's around, mainly the 350's.

Keep up the good work.

Things have progressed dramatically since I last posted a long.... time ago.

Got the motor covers all fitted up with new gaskets


Decided to reduce the size of the front guard


My dad then helped me with mounting the tank and seat to the frame

Decided it was then time to take a shot at mounting the rear light, plate and indicators

Stripped the frame of all paint at his point.

Then sprayed it with black epoxy enamel.
