        Feels like forever since I last did anything to the bike so with the kids playing in the street I rolled it out from its hiding spot and cracked on with a few jobs today:
        On the list
        :put new chain and adjuster on. : bar end mirrors. : wrap and fit exhaust. : install gear selector and left foot peg. : oil change. : fit painted starter motor.
        Getting somewhere now.







        Thanks for looking

          Just a quick question...as we live in the nanny state do you have to get stuff certified by an engineer? esp frame mods? I am itching to do a cafe racer on an old Jap bike...around a 500 should do.

          Ps love the gold and black....or should that be black and gold?
          Smoke me a kipper...I'll be home in time for breakfast

            Not really..

            Most people buy currently registered bikes in their stock form, then modify them while paying the rego during the course of the restoration. Since we don't have vehicle inspections and stuff, you'd only run into trouble if you get yellow stickered

              Thanks, the colour has grown on me considerably since I did it. Have enough for my next bike too so we will see.

              As Ryanoceros said register the bike first then modify is the best way to do it, you'll only run into trouble if you heavily modify the frame.

                Black and gold is the JP racing colour scheme from way back.

                  It's been a little while so I thought I'd do some work on the bike. Made a seat base and give it to the trimmer last week and picked it up today.
                  Not exactly how we discussed but I'm still happy with it. So close now to being finished
