Test ride went fantastic! What a difference. Before it was a realy boring bike. But now itís fun! Seat is comfy enough. 1,5 hour of riding is no probs.  Carb jets are #42 pilot and #120 mains and itís almost spot on. Think main could step down one number and pilot up one to be perfekt... but who cares. I had a blast

The build never stop... Made a tacho plug today.

Had some great fun on the roads today! Soon Iíll take my drivers test, but first...


This summer has been very hot in sweden and this is not a good combo with balance training and an air cooled engine. So much sweat

Got my license today! A 38 year old cafe racer gets some attention when all other bikes are MT/FZ07-kind of bikes. Did notice some things. Got a lot of skeptical comments about riding a really old bike for the license test, but proved them all wrong 8) Low clipons are not ideal for really slow precision driving. Original mini disc brakes are not the best you can get when 90-0 (km/h) braking. Takes some hand strength. Pod filters are very loud.. when trying to hear the examiners instructions via radio  ;D

Might have some riding to do this weekend!

Got my hands on a rear hub. Now itís time to do some cleaning and alot of polishing. I have not yet decided on what front hub to use. But will somehow put on bigger brakes. So if it will be a SM hub or CB hub with adapted VFR750 (or similar) disc is not decided.
