Love those pipes and that polished fork brace! Did you line that sweet glass tank, I don't remember.

Thanx for the kind words, the pipes turned out exactly as I envisaged them in my head ! Just need to get the 2 welds filled, dressed and polished [ stainless ].

After 2 false starts my local machine shop guy did the deed on the fork brace. Just waiting for my tame polisher to do the final polish on the fork clamps.

"Tank" is a bit of a cheat !!! It's a dummy Manx 5 gallon mould.

The actual "tank" [ fuel cell ] resides in the belly fairing. It's a bespoke alloy unit made by Uncle Rob - very talented builder and fabricator - here in the UK. A Facet fuel pump delivers the gas to the Weber and a second pump to the NOS system.

We're just finishing up the surfacing on the GRP belly pan. It was all over the place - nothing symetrical .... unlike Uncle Rob's fuel cell - which was ! We've also mocked up the fuel filler system. The fuel cap is in the hump of the 7R seat and feeds down via alloy tubes to the cell. BTW - the belly fairing is situated about 3" rearwards from the pic.

Coast to Coast
The garage is starting to get to where I can work on things without tripping and killing myself.
XS650 on the lift waiting to be wired, XL75 waiting on a piston, and the XL185 waiting on brake shoes and time. Not in the garage the XS tracker(needs big bore, failed wrist pin circlip on dyno), tiger 800xc (daily rider) and a pair of SL90s(1 needs assembly, other needs complete engine.)

Yes I have too many projects. The 185 is being fixed up for a family members christmas present, the XS will probably be sold in the spring, and someday I'll do something with the SL90s.

The is the derelict that has taken most of my time. Kids...don't store your motorcycle near pool chemicals! Surprisingly, the motor turns over with good compression.

Made a start on next years project. Doesn't look as if much has been done, but the frame has been widened one and half inches, swingarm pivot increased to 20mm, engine mounts moved and the frame braced, though still more bracing is to be added..

Here's how it sits at the moment and how it's going to stay for the next four months. I wish I could take it with me!
