Yeah, me too! I'm hoping I'll get the wiring finalised in the next week or so... then it's time to try and kick it over!

first cafe build was an incomplete learning experience, more of a test run for the real thing FRANKENHONDA II

Thanks folks, awfully kind of you! Not sure it'll be to everyone's tastes though... I'm not entirely sure how I feel about it anymore...

But, final wiring is almost done... and we have lights (again)! Hopefully this week it's getting it all into the battery box and hooked up to the m-unit and we (should) be away! Also been playing with tarnishing all the brass and copper bits as it was kind of looking like a Christmas tree with them all shiny...

Ok. I have to ask, how the heck have you paid attention to so many details and missed rebuilding the carbs?

Or was this a accident as a result of your tarnishing things?

Haha! Nah, I rebuilt the carbs a while ago but obviously it was cracked and I missed it. Started to screw in a new main jet and it cracked right through.
