Does she look like Emma Peel, to match your Steed look?

She does indeed, Sir, but sexier ;)

Then did a bit of housekeeping, tidied up the workshop to keep Mrs Limey happy, even though she never goes out there

If she knows where 'there' is, she knows too much!

I know a man with 10 OW01s, he also has a couple of YZF750 SPs and 3 R7s.
YZF750Rs were available from most Yamaha dealers from 93 onwards, not a big seller though thanks to the Fireblade.

If he taxed them he'd almost double the road legal examples in the UK.

Thinking about the build while laying in bed (it kinda takes over your life!)... why don't manufacturers fit grease nipples to suspension knuckles?

Had a few other things on today, so couldn't get up to much. Finished tidying the workshop, and hung up some shelves to give me storage for finished components awaiting refitting.

I then pained the back plates for the rear wheel adjusters.  I was going to polish them, but I got this can of Stainless Appliance Rustoleum that seems to be bottomless, so why not?

Today I rubber down the rear suspension dogbones.  I'm undecided whether to paint them silver or black.  In will sleep on it.

Also started cleaning up and rubbing down the frame.

And after much angst and deliberation I did the suspension dogbones in silver.  Decided the mechanical fittings will be silver, the main structure of the frame, forks etc black.

Prep has started on the frame.  Very little rust, and that's been rubbed back and rust treated.  Some more rubbing to do, then it'll be ready for pain.  On the plus side, most of the mounting tabs on the rear subframe for stuff like starter solenoid, indicator relay etc will be hidden by the seat unit I have planned, so minimal grinding and filing required.  Happy days.

Once the frame is fully prepped it'll be picture time again.
