Headlight came a lot quicker than I had expected, had to get some smaller brackets...seems big compared to the original but I don't think it's too big for the frame/bike...might take a while to get used to. It's 6.5" led, can't wait till it gets dark 😀
May shorten the bracket a few cm's down the road

Has to be more useful than the original!

Had a bit of nice weather so done the oil and clearances and FINALLY managed to get on with the seat, still not finished the upholstery part...going to glue foam onto a piece of left over plywood, upholster that and then velcro it to the seat pan. Made the cafe racer hump into a bit of storage so I can carry around some tools

Been a while, fitted some new rear shocks from aliexpress, they were pretty big so hsd to cut down the chain guard a bit, they are much stiffer/better than stock
And new front levers, put a braided front brake line and decided to convert her to hydrolic clutch too, I like the symmetry...
Still gotta get the front forks sorted, the side panels done, seat finished, new carb to go on once the manifold arrives and got some dear sets I'm going to try and put on but will involve welding so putting that off for now
Been a bit quiet in here of late, hope you're all enjoying your aces...ride safe

Side panels mocked up...need to rivet some tags and final shaping and sanding. Might do some sort of cut out? With mesh behind or something...maybe too much aluminium...I've still got 1m2 of the stuff left too

Hi Paul,

I think you might be correct... it does look like too much plain aluminium.

Excuse the crappy mock-ups, but triangular cutouts with black mesh behind or a heap of small 'speed holes' would make the side panels look smaller.
Regards,

Phil.

Yeah, like the lots of holes one better...cheers for the input I'll do something probably big holes at the front end getting gradually smaller towards the back...the idea was to try and make them look like fighter jet

No worries😀 If you are going for a fighter jet look, what about adding some mesh to the inside of the curved opening at the front and pulling the rearmost ends further inboard to accentuate their look as intake scoops. ?
