Nice!  I'm paying close attention.

Thanks TJ! The first one was built up over 2 or 3 weeks and has a lot of shortcomings as far as fit and finish go....will be trying harder on this new one. Currently working on integrating lights into the bodywork, I'll be doing the tail like this one below but very undecided about the headlight, I have a moulding from an earlier project that would fit and make life easy but really not sure if it suits....can't see the indicators hidden in the air ducts would pass IVA either...

And heres the start up video....

And in case anyone is wondering the bits flying past the camera are the remains of the paper I stuck in the exhaust ports after I rebuilt the engine.....and then totally forgot about when I put the pipes on!!

Time for a bit of an update I think.....!
Finally happy with the frame design in terms of geometry and how it goes together so have made a proper jig, bending templates etc and now making some more frames for the single cylinder motor....though I had always intended making a V twin version using the Transalp engine...but happened to pick up a CB1 the other day and decided using that engine would be more fun!

Fantastic work! 
I like cilp-ons, clubman's and superbike bars depending on the bike.  And rear-sets.

Thanks! Plan is to pick up a swingarm and drum brake rear wheel from something like a CB550/750 and a 4LS drum for the front....when I can afford it!
For now though its going to have to wait as I'm getting 2 more of the 650singles ready for the Custom bike show at Stoneleigh in April and time is running out!! Got wheels sorted today though....

I think my pal still has the second Grimeca front hub / 4LS set up - brand new.

Any interest ?
