Fabricated the headlight ear/blinker bracket, and installed headlight shell. The front blinkers have an integrated white light, to compliment the integrated brake lights on the rear. So far I'm pretty happy with them.
I am not entirely sure I like the headlight where it is. The ears seem too narrow, and the headlight seems to project forward too much. Next I will fabricate a dash mount.

Impressive build...just came across your thread and have spent half the morning reading the whole thing!
Particularly interested as I had a similar idea a few years back.....classic styled big single ....and have now made several of them...

nice work. I recently picked up a 2015 690 enduro. I'm so impressed by the engineering and characteristics of these engines.

Thanks guys! Unclerob I really like how those turned out. Do they have a build thread?

Just a list of things to do on the bike.

  • Tank, including mounting, fuel lines, petcock, fuel tank vent, fuel level switch
  • Dash mount
  • Radiator fan mount
  • Sidestand switch mount
  • Exhaust mount
  • Rear brake master and pedal
  • Two more seat mounts
  • Steering stop and lock
That's about it, really. Then it should be a runner, and ready for the MOT.
