Just cut the back off it now then, when he gets home, tell him it was involved in a serious grinder accident. He'll have to do it then.

tank sorted, nice... bike still needs a few things finishing....







got a little too much drop on the tap but still alot of clearance, so all good!

looking at the bike together the Mrs suggested the raw steel look.... i thinking that too now.... maybe just for a while...

Cool

I might have to use that pic for my screen saver Jon, I'm not much help with the wiring either but I'll give you a tip the plastic coating on the wire holds the smoke in, So make sure you don't make any holes in it or all the smoke will escape. Wink

Definitely - 100% with you on that one, Woody.

I know there's an expression about loud pipes saving lives, but surely there must be one for loud/spangly paint? Laughing

Hi... well i have made a little progress in the last few weeks but nothing complete... wires hanging out all over the place...
Have the tins primed (no Jon it’s not going to be white, that’s just primer) looks heaps better with some colour....
Still a little weld to do here'n there, prob tomorrow, chain guard, lid for electric box etc... Orb the welder... yay.





also made a box to put the bike on, my back is happy now cheers
