Thanks, but the motor is dirty and can't come out to play until it has had a bath.

Cheers Milky, hope your build is going well.  My new petrol cap arrived today, I tried cleaning the old one up, but it was just too pitted with rust.  The new one is even better than the original as it is made of stainless.  $27.30 from ebay - V happy.

Cut my front mudguard down today and primed it ready for paint:  Didn't realise until I saw this picture that it looks like the Alien.  I wasn't going to have a front mudguard on this bike, but If I'm going to be riding it to work over the winter, I'm going to need it.  Do you think it spoils the look of the bike?  I've drilled new mounting holes and lowered it since this picture was taken.  Also I've just ordered this cracking old-style centre mounted tax disc holder, stainless back with chromed brass front.

paint it black and you will hardly notice it.  stiffens the forks as well as keeping water off.
