Rex W builds some great bikes.  Those fins can be built up with weld. You cann't stick the broken bits back on but the stubs can be built up and ground back to stock shape.  Look for a good welder in your area.  Ask around.  Brad's Bikes down in Moorabin (?) may be able to point you to someone who can do it.

we used to use a guy called aviation welding in burwood.  not sure if he's still there or not.

maybe ask someone like the head stud development company.

Iím actually wondering if there would be a hydro blasting mob open between now and the time I fly out to blast the barrels.

Phil Pilgrim used to have a hydroblast set up when he had his shop.  He may still be in business in Ivanhoe.

Email sent, hopefully heís still operating and keen to take on a last minute job. Otherwise the engine reassembling may get put on hold.

So yesterday I separated the forks and removed the lower triple and gave it a polish.

I had originally wanted to have the top and bottom triple black but after looking at it I believe having the top and bottom polished frames the headlight better.

The old man is due home from interstate in a few days so we can have a discussion about the top triple that heís going to mill out. Iím excited to see how it comes out.

I contacted Phil about hydro- blasting and he returns to work Jan 2nd so Iíll hold out until then to piece the motor back together.

I may take this opportunity to refurb the rear brake caliper and polish up the engine side covers.

I was speaking to my old man about the paint and he reckons perhaps I didnít shake the can enough. So Iíll go shake the hell out of it and see if the colour comes out any better. 🤞

I shook the hell out of the gold caliper paint still no joy.

So Iíve decided to rebuild the caliper as is, new seals and pistons, then back on the bike.

Iíve taken two photos one with the original guard on and one without. Iím wondering if I should throw back to the original or leave it without

dunno about the plastic bit, but what if you paint the not rubbed areas of the disc black.  might not look so monsterous then.
