Shaun says he can maybe pick it up this week. We can sort out the money after you get the tank.

Got a new number plate for it today and mounted it. I would have finished the motor tomorrow but I have to fly to Melbourne for work. Wasn't that why I left the last job? Something wrong here :roll
Also finished a new headlight mount for the SR and stuck the W60 headlight on it for a bit of a change. At least everything is moving forward slowly.
I'll have to pick up a new camera in duty free and sort out some new pics next weekend.

Just in case you thought I'd forgotten about this one here's some progress.

Painted and up on its wheels

Engine back together apart from breaking the valve spring keepers on one of teh exhaust valves. New ones on their way.

im lovin that ironhead. really like the different colour scheme. the 'you can have any colour u like as long as it's black' is gettin boring these days
sr looks mint - that seat is perfection - like the white gauges too

Just reacting to some middle aged piss head telling me I was gay cause my W650 wasn't black like every other bike (all Harleys) in the carpark at the Riverhead pub.

when i was there the harleys i saw looked way boring & outdated in the wrong way, (not in a vintage way)
think 't bars & gunfighter seats' etc

I went in to visit it in Deus this afternoon. If I'd left the bloody thying at home I'd have finished it by now. I'm going to go in and see if I can get it finished on Sunday.

That's what I like to here. I'm sure Sara would look better than you on that SR too. Laughing

Engine sorted and back in. So, the question is, should I shorten the pipe like a sensible person, or......do I leave it hanging out the back like a Mexican Lowrider? Suggestions?

Now I need a hand to get the Panhead back home so I can put that springer on it. All change again.
