Update: 24 total shop hours from a truckload of parts to a rider!

Waiting on a new petcock, but I rode it with a Norton tank bungee'ed in place...



3 days ago, I sold an old Dunstall fairing for almost the cost to buy this bike, so it's like $150 net cost from start of assembly to road-ready. (not including the FREE pair of Cerwin-Vega PD-9 speakers!)

I had it over 60MPH in 3rd on our road, so I KNOW it'll EASILY do the ton in top gear on the open road.
It ain't braggin' if ya done it.

Seeing as I've got no garage, and nowhere to do messy work in the flat, I'm about to push the "buy" button on one of these - a 3x3 mtr sided gazebo:



I'm not allowed to put up a permanent structure here, and there's stripping, painting and polishing I want to do - it comes with brace bars that I can use to hang light parts on for spraying.  This way I can do a day's work on the bike and there'll be no trace I was there (apart from the clean spot where I wash down the flags before, during and after). 
Growing old is mandatory, growing up is optional.  Trust me on this.

GPZ305EX cafe racer (yes, seriously)

A lot of people comment
that they don't like what they see
I tell them to go f*** themselves
because this bike's for ME.

Picked up a rad old fiber glass rd400 tank and a Honda replica seat for the road racer project. Tank may not be street legal, but it only weighs a couple pounds, so the trade of is worth it ;)

Well I'll weigh it then, but it's lighter than a steel one is what I was saying.

Picked this up today, from a medical device manufacturing place. Come out of their engineering department. Ran aluminum prototypes, to the tune of less than 1,000 hours.
