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

    Cheers

    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!

    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.

    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

    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

    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.

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

    Ok, so the exhaust.

    At about the same time I bought the bike, I bought a pipe bender from supercheap. Seemed like a good idea at the time.

    Now there are a couple of tricks to this, but I still couldnt get it.

    Fill the pipe full of sand.



    Seal the ends.



    Apply heat while bending (Yep, just a heat gun straight on it. Its all I have, If I had an oxy im sure it would of worked fine)



    And.. Fail #1.



    Second attempt, a little bit slower and a little bit longer with the heat.



    And thats where I gave up and went to the local exhaust shop. He ordered me the bends I needed.



    So for the next coupel weeks I will be slowly putting the exhaust together. Will update when I make some real progress.

    Cleaning bits and pieces getting ready for the exhaust. There seems to be a constant reminder of how bad this bike was neglected before I got it.

    Carbies cleaned and mounted (might soda blast them later) and rubber inlets have been soaked in rejuvinating spray.

    Test fitted the air filter and bracket I made, pretty happy with them So apart from oiling it I think I will leave it how it sits at the moment.
