The bike is almost finished.

Have to do some tuning and consider to buy a new set of Mikuni carbs. As the old ones are giving me a headache.

That is coming along beautifully! That swing arm is an inspiration. Well done, sir; my hat goes off to you!
Can't wait for the video of it running!

I have to ask though: is that your living room, or do you just have a sweet set of furniture in your shop?

Sweet set of furniture in the garage where I mess with my bike.

Finally was able to finish the engine nicely with fresh paint and polishing.

Blood, sweat, tears and grease to finish the build. But man what a stunner in the end!

Really nice colors on this one:


And a nice one with artsy sunset, shippingcranes and the Amsterdam flag:

Scrolling through this page I was kinda thinking "that engine could use some freshening up"....a little scrolling later it's taken care of. Love how you carried the orange through the subframe and swing arm...and that swing arm is a beaut! ;D
