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

Tuesday, 17 January 2012

 the project seem's to have stalled a little this week as we are waiting for paint and parts, there is alway's something to do though so i set too with a couple of little tidying-up jobs, the fairing mounting bracket bolted to the two weld bushes on the front of the headstock got a good kicking on the miller and shaped up with a couple of rad's top and bottom, [don't worry, i've cut the two grub-screws down a bit too], the end of the truncated subframe looked unfinished with two holes just left so dangerous turned up a couple of top-hat blanking plugs while i drilled and tapped the rear spindle to take a couple of paddock stand bobbin's, i know i'll have to find another way of supporting the bike when i'm changing tyres but with the shaftdrive and swinging arm tubing being different diameters there isn't really an easy way of getting the bike up onto the paddock stand otherwise...........
