Painting and tank stickers are done - spending faster than I am earning but got to keep the economy going!



Tank doesnt have the badges yet - I will put them on when I can put the tank on the frame to make sure the badges are aligned.



Next.... I think the heads (dual plugging has been done)

powdercoating finished










Heads are also done - besides doing the valves etc the heads have been dual plugged, the inlet port flowed and the combustion chambers had the volumes equalised? Picture later
Im currently working on the gearbox - new 1st+ and 5th+ gears, bearings and seals.

nearly there

Well its been a few years since I started this (May 2012 - April 2014). There been a few delays along the way and life has a habit of interfering with your dreams but now its all but finished. Mainly a couple of finishing touches to be done - I had to make a few compromises along the way but they are mainly cosmetic and I can fix them up as the money and time comes along. Now its time to ride and explore...see ya.
