    Step aside Moto Guzzi...........Yamaha SR250 coming through :-)

    whilst I was looking at that picture above I want happy with the position of the headlight so I decided to drop it down about 15mm.........that 15mm was a few hours work !

    .....mounted the front mudguard onto the new brackets, but wasn't quite happy with the heads of the screws sticking out so made a small tool to form an indentation on the surface to sink them in a bit.

    next up, some mounting brackets for the front mudguard. bit of cutting, filing and drilling then bending in my home made folder.

    when I was down the front end I had to make some adjustments to the front brake shoe carrier to tweak the centralisation of the hub. quick skim off 2mm in the lathe and all good.

    whilst messing about with the mudguards I decided to replace the new tyres with some other new tyres!..............slightly more aggressive pattern, nothing to do with performance and handling, purely aesthetic.

    Set about cutting up the alloy mudguards, and rolling over the edges to give the paint some chance. I then tried in various places on the bike and settled for a lower mounted position.

    Happy new year! Ordered up some "classic" scrambler bend bars to try for size before going ahead and making a small bracket for the speedo.

    Onto that random twin leading shoe brake drum hub I got. I needed to make a torque arm for it and attach it to the fork. I started out making one from stainless, but that went south as I forgot to tighten the vice up on the mill, so ended up making an alloy one instead. After the sweat of...

    Again, jumping around a bit. The rear mudguard arrived in sorry state having been crushed by the courier, anyway I set about cutting and straightening it, and fitting it, the refitting it, then refitting it again !!........... and made up a number plate holder. The mudguard turned into another...

    Just a "simple" task of joining one end to the other........which was harder then it looks. For a simple single cylinder system, trying to get it under the pedal was a headache!. Ive done simpler 4 into 1 systems !

    Still waiting on the plumbing for the exhaust, I made myself busy repairing the damaged threads in the head and made a new flange. The plumbing turned up mid machining. Finished it off with some go faster holes.

    jumping around a bit here.....................back to the battery box whilst I waited for the exhaust plumbing to arrive. Got that welded up.. While there I took care of some of the "low spots" in the frame tubes. Welded up and ground back so they wont be too obvious when painted.

    Onto the exhaust...........first up, cut off the mounting bracket off the silencer, and polish it back. Then make a new bracket, and weld that on with my best instagram weld LOL. Made a new mounting bracket and welded some lugs onto the frame to hold it in place.
