Very nice. That's the sort of bike I'd like to build next if I can ever get round to finishing off some other projects first. Looking forward to seeing it with the motor in. What sort of pipes is it going to have?

im still tryn to get hold of the old owner to see if they have them
I think they re just being difficult so i have to register as a new bike and pay more for rego costs

I like the skinny rear tyre & your rear fender fits it very snugly

Oh by the way re the indicators - if you havent already got the issue sorted - I just found out you dont need them for pre 1978.
Your bike is well inside that date.
Apparently not many inspectors know this but the rule say something like " pre 1978 MAY have indicators post 1978 MUST have indicators.

PM me and I will send you back the web link for the motorcycle lighting rules - Im a new member so can not post external web addresses for some period.
(as I have been trying to do for the last 5 minutes hahaha)

No indicators for sure - keeps the lines nice and clean and saves time and hassles when you get to the wiring. Very Happy
It probably also the reason god gave us arms - so we can point which way we're going Very Happy Very Happy Very Happy Very Happy

Very nice. I'll have to put a build thread up on mine. Is it a bolt on hard tail?
