another perfectly good motorcycle ruined.......

 trying to get all the bits and bobs of fabrication done so we can get them welded on in one hit, i can weld but there's welding and then there's welding, chris w can weld, mad john can paint, ben 'fucking' jones can tattoo, barse can pogo like a banshee at a gallow's gig, dangerous can use the 'c' word like it's going out of fashion, i turned up a couple of spacers and tapped them 8mm to mount on the headstock so we can mount the 'avon' fairing off it, one of the previous 15 owners had 'drilled and tapped' [i use the description lightly, looked like they had attacked it with a spark eroder], the thread in the top mounting hole was shagged so dangerous stuck a helicoil in it while i made the spacers, couple of 8mm bolts to hold them in position while chris uses the 'majik' and we will have a good anchor to mount the fairing bracket, worked out the centres for the seat mountings/bracing for the rear subframe and found out we had no 30mm flat stock so i hacksawed a couple of pieces out of some sheet, dangerous faced them up on the miller and after a quick rub up to remove the teddy's i marked them out on the rear subframe........
