Did you get those reverse brake/clutch levers or just set them up yourself?

Nah, they're an off-the-shelf item.. well, off-the-eBay item (which I can no longer seem to find)... I had to modify them for the 22mm bars though.

Hmm I think I've looked for those before, but just didn't have any luck. Thanks for the info, I'll just keep my eye out.

Looking good, Noddy. I'm still in love with Isabel. :)

Thought you might be interested, but we're currently working on some retro/steampunk inspired speedometers.

Working on proof of concept right now.

That is awesome! How are they going?

So, some more progress (OK, not much, but SOME)... I did have to spend 2 months travelling around Europe though, life's tough...

New HD Studs (and scracthed-up paint):


One of these things is not like the other, probably accounts for all the rubber I found in the bottom case...


Mmm, shiny new big pistons:

Very well, thanks. Should have something together for an initial test in the next couple of weeks.

I'm working with Mike from Nestcraft Studio (http://www.nestcraftstudio.com/) to have some hand-made wooden speedometer enclosures made up. We're going high end on this one.

This project is great! The work on this (and what little I can see of Isobel) is phenomenal, you've got a real eye for detail. I have to break it to you though, but 90% of the pics on the Isobel don't work any more.

Well done learning to weld - it looks really neat too! Are you going to learn leading sometime too?

Yeah, I know. I've been meaning to get them all updated again... put that on the list...

Yep, going to get into some brazing for the oil tank... read on...

So... plans have been approved for the extension, so bike will be slowing down even more, if that's possible. But did manage to get a few things done in the meantime:










But I think I'll have to put it all away now until the renos are done... vaguely attempting to get the oil tank done before then though, but I might be being a bit hopeful...



I mean, this probably didn't have anyone's ashes in it at any stage.. right?
