Hi, get the fairing back on!!! Not often you find one with as good lines as the one you have. I think you should go with your original colour scheme on the jacket, it would look similair to the one in that perfume advert? You know the chanel' one with Keira Knightly, think it's a Guzzi though..
By the way I think I am just over the bridge from you.  :)

It's a Ducati SS Bevel !
But the manufacturing land was right ;)

And I dig wab's opinion !
Your fairing is badass, keep it on and do a vintage racer style it definitly will look superb !
But it's just my opinion, as long as you enjoy building and riding everything will be fine ;)

Looks pretty sweet with the fairing on there, man. I'd keep it for sure :)

That's the direction I want to go with my CB175, full vintage racer setup. Did you weld up your own mounts for the fairing or manage to bolt it on somehow?

Yeah, I saw that and started looking at a beige/cream theme, then found the jacket. I'm gonna spray it grey to start seeing as I already have the paint, and if it doesn't look right i'm definitely going to go for the scheme on the jacket  8). Ah yes you are just over the bridge, not too many active UK members on here let alone local haha.

The mounts are bolted. on. The rear mounts connect to the base of the battery box and front is clamped and bolted to the downtube.

i agree with most, keep that fairing and build a true racer looking 250.

Not much to report at the minute. For some reason its just lost spark so no starting her up for the minute. Between a slight cross-threaded head and a clusterfuck of dodgy wires and connections, this is gonna take some time  >:( haha.

a-ha! (As Mr. Alan Partridge would say). The lack of spark issue may have been solved. Could of diagnosed the problem quicker if I could find my multi-meter, but it seems to be the left side coil. So another one is on its way.

Apart from that, I replaced most of the bolts I could undo (Most are extremely rounded and an absolute b*****d to undo) with stainless allen head bolts, and Ive primed the carb tops.

Also wheeled the bike out into the sunshine to get a better picture as it currently sits :).

Ok, Im not great with bikes so i'm gonna need a bit of help here.

Sorted out the wiring and coils so now she starts and idles. The idle is pretty inconsistent as it seems to occasionally rev itself and then slow down. Once the throttle is twisted, the bike dies. But this is only for the left carb (when I use move the throttle arm on the right carb it revs fine, but on the left, it dies)...Is this just a sync or timing issue...maybe throwing too much fuel in from the left side?
