Cool colours Mark. Would be very nice. I'm questioning myself regarding colour schemes as well. Trouble is, there's loads of really good one's and I want them all. You been on a jolly today then ? I've been busy grinding again and a spot of polishing to finish up. more of the same tomorrow. What about you ?. Gaz

well headers turned up and they are complete garbage, rotten in 3-4 places so they are going back!this week have been working on my seat/tail section and front mudguard.cut down the sides of the seat so it matches the bottom line of the tank and rubbed the cone down to bare fibreglass and gave it a coat of primer, still needs lots more work yet.chopped the sides off the front mudguard and took off id say 12-14 layers of paint, right back to original fibreglass, this took about 7 hours of sanding off and on so doesnt look like much work but hands are sore now lol.still needs chopping to size still a bit long.parts arrived from the netherlands , new fork drain screws to go in my polished legs, and new bottom fork bolts.here is what the whole lot together looks likestill need to fill with oil and am waiting for some stainless fork caps to be made from a chap in scotland.once i get my refund from my crap headers i can buy a new front tyre and mount the front wheel.
looks well good love it
Excellent work mate loving it

well tonight's episodue looks at the wiring loom.x2 looms came with the bike 1 very good and 1 that looked like it had been attacked with a chain saw.so i started stripping the old tired loom tape off and retaping so the loom kept its original shapehave only found x2 repairs in the whole loom so looking good.here is the pile of old stuff i took off.and found some nice woven stuff to go over the straight bits.next thing to do is put it on the bike and work out which bits need extending, battery terminals for one etc.
Impressive work and progress so far Keep reading across waiting for the progress pics. Keep at it

nice one keep the pics comeing
had a few things from bitzforbikes good company
thats what we like to hear dick, some of the parts are very cheap just wish i had the money to buy the headers lol.
so not much to show for the last week, still working on the wiring loom, fitted a new fusebox as the old one was well past its best.got my refund from my crap exhaust so 2nite i bought the front tyre, which means i can put the front wheel in. Dismantled my fuel taps at the weekend and cleaned them out using the ultrasonic, need to do a well known mod on them as they dont have an off position so leak fuel as they get older.dont think i will be using the front mudguard now (after all that work!) seen this one which i like better.http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/270829157570?ssPageName=STRK:MEWAX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1423.l2649#ht_500wt_1202I won the outer valve springs on ebay for a bargain price , and have started to dismantle the engine, took the sump off and cleaned that out along with the oil pump strainer.
pleased you got refunded,that mudguard looks good too
yes thats a very good mod on the fuel taps ,
cheers folks!another small update, fork leg caps turned up today from Yantosh.fitted a treat which is always nice, wanted stainless but they look ok in alloy, certainly weigh alot less.and bolts for caliper carriers as well. and finished cleaning out the sump , god i hate old gaskets, they just take forever to remove....oh this is the front tyre i ordered, still need to buy the rear but that will have to wait.http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/350496241480?ssPageName=STRK:MEWNX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1439.l2649#ht_6576wt_952
top job caps look good
spot on mark,yantosh is good and his prices are
well yesterday i spent an hour putting the front tyre on hoping to bolt it to the front end, didnt want to mark the wheel so took my time, only to blow it up and the bloody inner tube has a hole in it typical!, new one ordered and on the way.really should be taking the engine apart, but feel like shite.never mind onwards and upwards.....
Never mind Mark, at least you're making progress. Mine is on hold now. Put the house on the market this week and flat out completing stuff for the photo's (next Tuesday). Don't see me doing anything to it before I get a new home now either, work has gone mental as well, I need about 40 hours in a day and ten days in a week at the moment. Keep up the good work, I haven't posted anything but I am still following yours mate, I really must see it in the flesh when you finish it. Gaz
good luck with the move gaz!after a liberal dose of alcohol last night, i woke up this morning feeling great.so took the cams out, cut the cam chain with my dremel and took the head and barrels off the engine.all looking good so far, very dirty in there but will clean up well.think its been bored in the past? as it has these numbers on the sleeves, will have to measure the pistons with my vernier guage
front inner tube turned up today so can now put that in, and new rear brake line from hel turned up, have a chap in america making me some black stainless braided hoses to get rid of the splitter as i cant find any that run direct from the master cylinder to the calipers.have this chap designing and building me a new cam chain tensioner as the old one is well past its best.http://www.kriegercamchaintensioners.comthats about it folks, waiting to get paid on the 25th then i can order some more parts!
Excellent mark looking forward to more updates

shame about the wheels mate
im afraid im a perfectionist and they looked great but it was only satin spray paint it seems and wouldn't have lasted long, better to do it right.
know what you mean best to do it properly
