It's turning into another long term project, didn't want to keep everyone in suspense until boredom took over.
 Her's another teaser then

Glenn has sent some pics of Brendon working and what I think is a good pic of me/garage



Bottom bearing, almost fully seated Just for the people who think level with edge of frame is OK)


Front assembled (mostly) 90.90 tyre on WM3 rim

Brendon didn't like the modified sprocket cover, too much grease that collects off drive chain was visible so asked if I could come up with some sort of mesh
Had some perforated sheet aluminium from doing rear wheel a while ago so cut it up and made this

 I like it so much, I'm going to do a couple more
 Brendon's bike has progressed to the stage where I allowed it on the bench  ;D
It's not getting paint.
Seat is CB350, fairing by WOK  ;)


All for now

Very nice on that sprocket cover!!!  Lee (Swagger) is doing something similar to the cover on my (ex)550.  Not sure exactly, I'd have to ask the current owner, but it sounds cool!  Neat seeing it.

Actually did something useful on 2 bike's today
I tapped the steering head with 1.8mm thread so I can re-fit the VIN plates.
The original 'rivscrew' things were too difficult to remove without damage so I carefully drilled heads off and punched them through before removing plates




now I have to find some 1.8mm screws
Brass or stainless?  :-\

Brass would resemble the rivets.  Either choice will look good.

Yep, I already found out M1.8 is a real difficult size to find. (unless you buy 3,000+ screws  ;D )
Luckily I bought a die to go with tap, I thought I may have to make brass screws
 I may get some 2mm and run die down them in the meantime

Just for fun, a use for 'ded' piston



Light is a bit 'pink' so the pure white LED bulb is going to need some red tint
