    Time to start on the front end. Made brackets and a number plate. Planning to round off the corners of the plate little. Ordered some smaller led indicators to replace these monster old Suzuki dirtbike ones. Also ordered a fork brace that I will use to mount the front guard too. Finally making...

    Jetting changes are proving positive by going richer on the main jet. Ordered the next 2 sizes to keep testing. Sent from my moto g(7) using Tapatalk

    I have not been able to find an oil pump for this model so running pre mix for now. Bolted the exhaust back on and the carb and took it for a ride. Gear changes work well now and overall a big improvement in power through the bottom and mid range. Top end is still lacking though. Will need to...

    How nice is it assembling a clean and painted engine. So much better than working on my dirtbike engine. Sent from my moto g(7) using Tapatalk

    Well I seem to be building the bike from the oddball year. Parts for a 73 or a 75 onwards are much easier to find..... So I had to cut most of my own gaskets Sent from my moto g(7) using Tapatalk

    It's bloody cold in Melbourne right now. I got the fireplace in the man cave hot to get the engine parts up to temp before painting with VHT satin black. Then I baked them for an hour to cure. Sent from my moto g(7) using Tapatalk

    I found the issue with the gear changing pretty quickly, just out of adjustment. Happy! That means no need to split the crank case. Changed the reeds and the cranks seals too. Sent from my moto g(7) using Tapatalk

    I've pretty crap at updates here lately but the bike has been processing along slowly. Everything works and I have proof of concept, but the engine lacked power and would not change down gears properly, so I decided to pull the engine out and strip it down. At a minimum new crank seals, reeds...

    Finally got my arse into gear to make some progress on this build. Been working on the wiring for a while so that I could get the bike finished enough to register. It's now done. So now to get serious and get this thing built the way I want it. Paint, polish, new lighting, guards, etc Can't wait...

    Been a bit slow on this build lately. Found time to get it ready for registration though. Mounted the ignition switch under the oil tank, finished the seat frame and added a heat shield on the exhaust. It's ugly and rough but it should pass the inspection. Then I can start the strip down and...

    This is true! That front fender is for registration purposes only. As soon as I have the bike on the road, fender will be coming off! Sent from my Moto G Play using Tapatalk

    Progress has been a slow lately. Managed to get the seat base finished and the whole seat mounted tonight. It came up pretty well I think. Hinge works well, original lock/latch and will have access to the oil tank. Still need to move the ignition switch and make an exhaust heat shield then I...

    Finally got around to getting the seat upholstered. Came up well. Looks like the seat base will fit well on the base and line up well with the tank. Sent from my Moto G Play using Tapatalk

    I took to old girl out for a quick spin today & it ran surprising well! I forgot how much vibrations these engines put out! A few small tweaks, some new seat hinge pins and try to make it a little quieter and it should be all good. Feels so small compared to the bikes I usually ride. Sent from...

    It's been a while since any real work was done on the DT. Today I started making up a seat frame to work off the original hinges. Will mount the fibreglass seat base to the frame then get a seat pad upholstered. Sent from my Moto G Play using Tapatalk

    Got the rear end reassembled, nice and tight with the new bushes. Ground out the pins for the old foot pegs and mounted the new ones. Also got the new acewell speedo wired up and working, great piece of gear and easy to set up. Now to get the steering stops sorted and the seat mounted. Sent...
