Poor ol Glenn. He's thinking "is this PBS pete just a nutter who's taking a bloody long time to build this thing"?
Well me, myself and I would probably agree, after long discussions with myself.
Oh, and btw, if ever you use champix to give up smoking, get ready for the dreams!

Keep it coming Pete. You come a long way already.

I don't know that I would have the courage to start with what you did. I can see the words " No way , tooo hard ", flashing before my eyes.

What's your final colour scheme / theme intentions ?


Anything I say , may or may not have any truth or relevance , this is the internet after all.

Hi red, final won't be original, bike was too far gone for that and my pocket. It will be what we all did to them, make em handle, make em sound and perform,.
So braced, ikons, 4 into 2, frame is the deepest blue you could get, everything else satin black and grey or silver. A la the tank. Super bike bars. Or ace bars. Fork brace. Pods, because the bracing has excluded the air box and anyway Glenn has that now.
It's a long build for me, slowly and hopefully surely. Thanks for the interest.

That is certainly a project.... I remember knocking back a project with a frame break where yours was... Down the LH Side cradle tube,
I also remember strengthening the frame under the tank and forgot that is where the coils have to be mounted!
Also, a bar across the front... That is where the the exhaust pipes come out of the frame! Then leaving the cam chain out of the engine, then forgetting the kick-starter gear when I buttoned up the split engine.
Keep up the good work.
