I was fixated on the size of the headlight & the spotless "Shop".

Didn't even notice the bars were missing.  :-[

Got rid of all the paint on the tank


I don't know for sure what color I'm going to paint the tank. I might keep it without paint. Maybe some pinstriping.

Its been some weeks but I've been primarily busy with the wiring loom. That did pay off though as all the lights work, the starter system works and I have a strong spark!




Next step is to get the chain alignment correct. I took some of the rear wheel parts to my friendly neighborhood metal worker and had him turn a couple of mil from the sprocket holder and mil of some more from the brake caliper bracket. Should be in line now!

The new rear brake looks pretty nice on the underside of the swingarm.

Quite some time ago that I've posted something but I'm still working on it!
I've painted the edge of the tank and the part of the tank where the saddle used to rest upon.

I've moved house again which means the bike is not in my living room anymore but in my own little storage/workspace on the ground floor
I've ordered a lot of stuff: new tires (to be fitted), chain and sprockets, material for the brake caliper spacers and much more small bits.
Also refurbished the exhaust

Unfortunately it turns out the exhaust studs are too short while I thought I ordered the longer ones. Have to try and source some new ones of the correct size.
The bike itself now looks like this



The to do list is getting shorter and shorter!!

Is it just my computer, or have your pictures disappeared?  :-\

@J6G1Z. Somehow the links to all my old pictures don't work anymore. I haven't found out what went wrong but hope to get em back up soon.

The picture host changed all their links for some reason. So after going through all my posts and changing all links the pictures work again

Oh good!

You have some great progress pictures.

Is the forum picture feature difficult to use or need some type of modification?

Thanks

I also have a topic on a Dutch motorcycle forum. I usually copy the posts I make there and translate them. On that forum I can't upload pictures very easily so that's why I have to link to external image hosting website anyway. Therefore I've never used the picture feature here.

The bike is looking fine,can't wait to see it finished. Nice wheels, I remember the old Akront and Borrani valence wall rims from the 60"s and 70's, very nostalgic.

Your burn victim is likely to be done before this one though Donny.
When finished we should definitely do an ascot custom ride ;)
