Thanks everyone. Its been a long hard slog and still heaps to go but at least I feel like I'm finally getting somewhere. Ive been sick for the past year and a half so haven't been able to do as much in the shed as Id like. I still need to make engine mounts and have yet to source front and rear master cylinders but so far this beastie has only set me back just under $7k by scrounging parts where I could. So building on the cheap is possible if youre patient. ( there are a heap of parts on the bench that you cant see in the pics that still need to be fitted).

Hey Bacca. Ive got the original Magneto for it. It drives off the back end of the camshaft. Im not running any electricals apart from a generator for the lights. So shes kick only. :)

The S/V look a lot like an Indian, very cool engine to use.
Rest looks great too! :D
