I just noticed you have the bike on KZr too and got the same response. So never mind me...

I've had luck drilling a deeper hole into the stripped screw and hammering a Roberts bit into it.

So its going slow, work got busy again (yay 60hr Weeks).
A thought i'm having now is; when I clip down the frame, should I seal it with a 'cafe' loop, or leave it open. what I don't know is if there will be sufficient strength leaving it open.  There is already a brace about 6" from my desired chop point. Any errors if wisdom will be appreciated.
I'm waiting for my passport before I can take a state trip to get paint so in the mean time I'll continue prepping everything.

Def Chop it to desired length and re-weld the hoop back ....Before Welding Get a piece of steel pipe that slides into the holes snugly..... that will not only strengthen it, it will also hold the piece straight while you weld it back ..... Crazy that you need a passport to get paint, never heard that one before....

Well I don't 'need' a passport, however the Canadian market for paint is pretty slim and about two thirds more expensive. $10+ for a rattle can of anything... I'll get on finding a welder, or someone to do it for me.

EDIT:

Just placed my order at DCC. Heading my way soon is: 33mm black clip ons, bar end mirrors, grips

New here, and very interested on this build! How about an update? I want to try and convert my 305 but the step up frame, and wheels are a big challenge to a first time cafe builder. would love to know how you dealt with it...
