Crowie just picked up a nice Pan from Victoria. It has been on club regio in Vic and now needs to be number checked for regio here in SA.

Pipes are straight out and need to baffled down to 100decibels... which should be just possible with out having to go to mufflers. He eventually wants fishtails which I will order in shortly. Primary drive is an open 1½" belt and needs covering. Although it doesn't legally require a rear chain guard we'll put one on to keep the grease off his back. Pre 88 bikes handlebars in SA can be up to 380mm off their mounting point and these apes come well within that if measured from top triple tree. Technically they can be measured from their 'point of attachment' which is actually the risers. Post 88 bars must be with in 380mm of the lowest part of the seat... a pretty stupid rule that does not allow for possible 300mm difference in rider height.

It also needs a few other fixups like a dipper switch, new brake light switch and a horn.

I have a couple of other jobs do finish first and then we'll get on with this and put it through its number check.
