Another big lump done. Exactly what I had in mind and a perfect match to the rattle can I used for the tank, etc.

Thanx guys, yes powder coating.

I've used these peeps [ Redditch Shotblasting ] for 40 years - always get a top job. The 2 wheels and bars - £100.

Although the RAL powder is classified as "dull" finish, it does have a slight sheen due to the final oven firing.

Dilema ....... do I just leave the painted finishes as a true matt, or chance a satin clear lacquer coat ????? Or am I being a bit anal ?

I'll spray up a random piece with the Light Ivory and give it a whirl with satin clear.

Through no fault of his own - my frame goes to the welder in the next 7-10 days.

Coming to the end of the major spending now, just the parts that need bright passivating - maybe £ 60 - £100 ?

This is the icing on the cake !!!

These are the prototype plates, but the smaller one will read Engine # , not chassis #.

These guys produce OEM style plates, but are quite happy to do one offs. Highly recommended.

Another year dawns ...... and I pick up my project [ s ] pretty well where they left off in November !!

Pal who was going to weld my frame and press in wheel bearings suffered a double whammy of Covid and a close family member death.

He is just about getting himself back to normal and hopefully I will see my frame and wheel soon.

It's YEARS since I last fitted a tyre [ 45 ? ] and I don't trust myself NOT to damage my newly powder coated rims, even with my plastic rim fitting protectors. I have another pal who races with his son nearly every weekend in the season [ motocross ] and fitting tyres is second nature to him. he's volunteered to do the fitting as soon as my front wheel comes back with new bearings fitted.

I should be finished with the bike ramp soon [ for the Boardtracker ] so the Glemseck KZ750 Cafe Racer can go back on.
