Failed to get bike done for Mods & Rockers so had to take the 'mostly stock' one.
over 130mile round trip, I think I did something nasty to it on way back as it's smoking pretty bad on left cyl.
 Anyway, I was going to post some pics but for some reason I cant?

OK, this is part of the reason bike didn't get finished on time, spent too long making and modifying stuff

11mm bore dirtbike master cyl



Made a banjo bolt from Stainless steel Allen, drilled some cross holes for lockwire and tapered top (and I made braided line)


'New' ignition switch, LED neutral and High beam warning, LED left/right indicator lights


Expensive April! this is 4 of the 5 bikes, didn;t have to do truck as we did a 2 yr tag last year (next year will be VERY expensive)  :o

Fitted LED rear indicator and made 3 different speedo mounts (so far. :o )
 Not happy with any of them so I'm on 4th
here's pic of new mount I made for indicators as I really wasn't happy with the look of nuts and washers  ::) (original for comparison)
 Fitted into original Honda mountings.
 Don't like the look of 8mm head bolts but haven't had chance to get some stainless coach bolts to modify so I'l have low profile dome head


I was speaking with Jason from Dime City on Saturday at Mods & Rockers, going to try and get 2 or 3 bikes out the 'Grand Opening' next month, even as WIP  (work in progress  ;D 8) )

 Coach bolts, carriage bolts, same thing, I bought some 6mm and some 1/4" stainless ones  ;D
Been trying to find a way to mount instruments, going with just a speedo for now, making all sorts of stuff that looks like it's going to work, until I actually fit it   >:(
 I have come up with something that doesn't look too 'shite' will post pic when its done. (different, as far as I know  ;) )
 Eventually going to mount rev counter where it's fully visible, probably central, with speedo offset to right
 Bought four different colour thirty foot lengths of wire to finish off wiring (enough for at least 2 bikes) $15.00 plus tax  :)
 Hopefully I'll be able to take it out by Sunday as a fully functioning runner although I'm already planning different rearsets
Got 2 motors to rebuild now  ::)
I'll have to stop breaking them  :o

Speedo is mounted and working, had to fabricate a multi-piece bracket (amazing how difficult it is to spin wheel more than 10MPH  ;D )
Footrests on, had to make various spacers.
 Made a new brake pedal, don't like it but I'll keep it for now (made a second one, liked it even less  :o )
Cut down original brake pedal, removed foot lever part and kept pivot/operating arm/rod then welded 'pull' piece to bottom.
I was going to make a completely new section but it's taking too long and I want it running.
 still need to make linkage for brake and gearchange.
 Swapped wires on 'dash' LED's for thinner ones
 Doing everybodies 'favorite'  job - wiring it up
 It would be a lot easier if I hadn't fitted LEDs all over the place and didn't want to try to stick close to 'stock' wiring colours (indicators are 'correct', live, switched live, ignition and ground leads, correct colours)
 Cat thinks it's great though, all that stuff to play with  ;)
Shock is off so it's easy to compress suspension and get bolts through passenger footrest mounting holes
 So far,every time I touch anything, I HAVE to modify it   ::)
Almost forgot, I painted a few pieces as well  8)
 Anyway, here's a pic.
 Stuff you need.
 Butane soldering iron, two different crimping pliers, solder, heat shrink tubing, lots of different wires

PJ-  I love following your builds...so many creative and well thought out ideas.  Just wondering if you have had a chance to try running the engine that has the drilled out cam?  Do you plan on running an external oil line to feed through the center of the cam?  If you have any more info. on this modification, I am really interested. 

Thank you!
