Yes and no.

The project is now 'under wraps', as it nears completion. No more photos until it's done.
The molds (yes, I finally realised that I kept typing 'mould') (but now that I've typed that it still looks wrong ) are progressing. And that will allow Leigh to get into the metal. And that is one of his specialities.

Patience, grass hopper.

Get that 400/4 running proerly, then get back into the Wasp, please.

Progress?

C'mon Ray,

I've been watching this thread eagerly. You're killing me. We demand a progress report with photos!

Please.....

If I have to wait...you do too.

However, a bit of a teaser... I'm off to Adelaide at the end of next week for the 24hr Trial and then a week with LeighSA. I'm taking the second Tiger over, on a trailer. It may be empty on the way home, but it may not be. We'll just have to wait and be patient.

It's not as finished as Clancy's, but










is more so than TD's.

Heck, it's more finished than my next build, which isn't even started. I keep dragging my feet and have not even selected a tug for the project. I'm considering a Tiger but can't seem to pull the trigger on a specimen.

Yeah, and it's probably a fkn train, and knowing Vicrail, it's going to be either late, or cancelled




















Sorry Dave, couldn't help it. 3legs made me do it.

No, TD. I've never heard of the bowels being called 'the station', before. Must've been something you ate!

I did learn a couple of new ones the other day - 'sending the kids to the pool', I thought was better than 'sending the kids to school'. 'Pool' was more appropriate.


(Good to hear there is some work happening)

Had a mature lady in one of the Learner courses earlier this week. She looked really natural on the CB250, very excitable to start with, but really enthusiastic too. Her hubby is busy re-assembling at least one CB400/4 for her to ride. Great little bike, well when they were new. Hopefully hers will work well.

Yeah I think some photo's would be great, coz you have not seen this project in real life yet. Oh boy there has been some hours spent, but I getting to be happy with the forseeable result, Oh bugger I just remembered I have to make another on (this one be Blue!!!!!) at least most of the thinking has been done, measurements taken etc. Only a few little differences, 17" rear wheel (at this stage) slightly different sub-frame and that's about it. Hope the photo's are to the standard!!!!!!!!!!
