Hi all I enjoyed my las build of this so much I've decided to do it again, only this time with a difference.
Once the tank and the panels are on you cant see all the detail you've done so, I decide to do it in a workshop with the engine on the bench and the panels and tank being given a respray.

Hi all here is an update on this. My first of several problems I can forsee coming up The carb inlet openings are blanked off as they normally wouldn't normally be seen, as they are inside the airbox, os I've had to open them also since the cable are not connected I have to show the inner cables and the nipples on the ends of those, think I've opened a can of worms here, we will have to see what else crops up.

Hi all here is the latest update on this kit, I had a couple of errors pointed out to me, one of them blindingly obvious the rear sprocket should be on the rear wheel so I've sorted that and of course the tank filler hole should be taped up to hide the bit you are supposed to attatch it to the bike with(not there on the real bike)





























now I know the qverall size of the bike I am going to try and build one of those bike ramps you see in workshops nowadays.

Hi here is a small update on this

obviously these exhaust flanges would not have the lge locating flange on the back they would be a sliding fit over the down pipes and would pull the downpipes up by the flange on the downpipe, so they needed drilling out.









Made a rack for the exhausts

Hi all on the last leg with this one, the bike itself is nearly finished, I am attempting to scratch a compressor, which of course would then involve trying to scratch a 1/6 spraygun, still trying to make convincing socket set(you may notice I've made the socket wrench) definitley on the last leg though (may have to make some shelving for the stuff that's laying around on the floor, it looks a very messy workshop which would fail any health and hygiene inspection.
