Motor has come up very nicely. NOw you can progressively tidy the bike up by removing excess junk in between ringin it.

coming along nicely allways a bit challenging the first ones but they give you that little bit of appreciation of what you can achieve given a little elbow grease and alot of time in the man cave . The next will come along sooner than later as you will disscover and learn a bit more each time you try something new or original to make your bikes yours . a little advice take it or leave it and i know we are all the boss of the house (WHEN THERE NOT HOME OF CAUSE ) dont be impatient take your time and dont forget your homework unhappy missus = disgruntled lonely bike builders have fun with it Cheers

See if you can get rid of the speedo and tacho and just use a bicycle electronic speedo or mini chrome speedo... wil really transform the front end.

Hey Junior, can you tell me what make and model tank you have.??
Looks like the one I cut up for my CX project, but, I didn't know what it was from. Does it have a small rectangular slot where the fuel tap goes.??

I'm in Brisbane. Mate I might have to take you up on that offer. I'll have to drive at the moment cause I haven't had time to get the rego sorted. Hopefully in the next couple of weeks or so I might.
