None to date, not really necessary as I don't anticipate using it for rough dirt work.

Pommie John; maybe you should tell us about the airhead racer that you have listed on your profile.

I think Ray is doing some subframe reinforcing on my bike, but nothng major. We only need to look at the pounding Stagehand`s bike has taken to know how strong those things are.

The frame, subframe, battery box and fork sliders are off being powder coated by a bloke that "Bulldust" discovered; he`s not cheap, but I believe his work is excellent. Blue frame, subframe, crash bars and sliders, with white guard(s), R80GSPD tank and Britannia Composites fairing.

Gearbox has been rebuilt, as has the drive shaft, heads have been sitting on the shelf for some time.

Final engine specs have been decided: Siebenrock 1000cc barrels and pistons, 800cc twin plugged heads, with 32mm carbies. Ray remembered he has an engine out of an R100RT stashed away, with a good crank and near new timing chain, so looks like we`ll be using that block to attach the Siebenrock stuff to.

It will also have some of the good stuff that "Bulldust" has on his bike.

Ray just has to chase up a front rim, get it laced up, then he can assemble a rolling chassis and it`s game on.

Things come to those who wait (or something like that), I`m happy to wait.

Sure you don't want to go with a worked R65 motor? 853?

It will be, but it won`t look it. Ray`s bikes usually look pretty ordinary until a closer look is taken; heaps of little stuff and great attention to detail.

No, she`ll be right; I think Ray thought I was nuts suggesting that.

Picking up your frame from the Powder Coaters on Friday, will drop it out to Ray's place Saturday morning.

Thanks for that, Mike, I certainly did get a surprise when I saw the pics here. As can be seen, the build has finally begun; many hours or work getting the fairing set up, with the instruments and idiot lights having to be put into a custom made surround to get the correct angle.

The Britannia composites fairing is a bit of a disappointment considering how much it cost. If you look at the front-on pic you will see that the left side sticks out further than the right, so consequently there is a gap between the dash and the fairing if looked at from the riders side. The fairing and dash also wobble badly, so Ray will have to tether them together and make other adjustments to get a good solid fit. He excels at attention to detail stuff like this, but it is time that could be better used elsewhere. There will be a bank of daytime running lights mounted crossways under the front of the fairing.

Front guard will be a genuine low mount R100GS, painted white. We have a second hand rear guard bought for a good price winging its way from the UK. If it is injection moulded black and in good nick it will be going on as is. If it needs painting it will be done in white.

I was originally going to fit a 32 litre R80 GSPD tank, which IMO opinion looks much nicer than the R100GSPD tank, but I wanted as much capacity as I could get. I can always change things around later if I don`t like the look of the finished product.

If anyone has any questions..........
