    • Tan green for the tank I reckon. And a word to pay homage to the bikes past

      • Now I always had the idea to put wrap on the exhaust. Originally I was just going to do black, but having a look around there are heaps of colours to choose from. Might end up going with a tan or grey just to.. spice it up a bit.

        • So very slow, but progress has been made. Welding with an Arc welder was extremely painful but I got there in the end.









          The pipes curve in around the footpegs to hopefully alleviate some of the heat on the legs. Might need another layer of Wrap but we will see how we go

              • Small update, been trying to glass up a rear fender.

                I used the OLD tyre, wrapped it in alfoil, greased it up with diesel oil and layed on the glass.

                gave it a quick trim and then did a quick test fit.



                Since then (2 weeks ago) I have been constantly sanding and filling until I get it fairly well flat & smooth.
                Its going to have a different kind of finish on it anyway, but I wanted a decent base to start with.



                Hopefully should be ready for paint by the end of next week

                • Got a bit eager and chucked a coat of paint on, just to see how it was all going ( I still need to mount the rear brake light / number plate bracket )

                  Its good to see where I need to work on it, as the paint highlights some parts that I couldn't see without it.



                  Hopefully by the end of next week I will finish the bits and pieces that I need to do before I put the finishing coat on.

                  • How's progress mate?

                    • So I decided to dust this thing off and keep going, after a gap year (or 5).

                      Finally got it kicked over and running, and discovered very quickly that the top end gaskets needed to be replaced. So that’s what I did!






                      You can see how brittle the gaskets were....



                      And that’s what I’m currently up to, hopefully more updates to come more regularly than 5 years apart!

                          Thanks Para, I was wondering why they didn’t show up.

                          Cheers
