i would love to say i've been busy riding... or even racing for that matter. unfortunately i've been working at a computer since we got back from daytona. the time i've had in the shop has been mostly customer stuff and when i did have a little guzzi time i didn't bother. too tired. a little angry at it... blah blah blah.

here we are at the end of march almost. since i last posted not much has been done. little odds and ends. a bit of buying pieces really. here she sits today



what's new? i tried a bunch of different bars to see what i liked best. i'm going for a hooligan type machine so old-skule clipons just wont work. i settled on a set of pro tapers with a 25mm rise off the clamps to fit the honda fork tubes.

tires! i got a set of avon 110-80-18 roadriders. everyone i spoke to about tires either said this was their next tire or loved them. at $110 each it's a no brainer. and my dealer in north van had a set!



a bunch of other odds and ends came about also. all my oil line components which took forever due to weird metric fittings... coils from dynapac to work with the crank trigger ignition and integral voltage reg. i even bought a gauge because i though it was cool.



my list of short term projects to complete
- bar stop
- coil mount
- crank case breather box
- make oil lines

fingers crossed... i may have some time to fiddle with her before i have to move to a new place. possession date is july 1.

Ahhhh, thank goodness. Loaded is back at it again. The planet will keep spinning and we won't slam into the moon.

I was beginning to wonder if all had been lost.

Glad to see the latest post!

Keep up the great work.

See Loaded ...

You not only have a responsibility to finish this build for your own purposes, there are millions of inmates spread over the entire planet waiting with baited breath for each and every update you post.

Get to it lad ...

I swapped to the roadriders last week from BT45's.

What a difference, I thought the BT's were good, they are nothing to the roadriders.

Right away it felt totally different smoother, soaked up small bumps etc without any fuss, stable to well into 3 figure speeds. Excellent tyres.

best thing I have done to the bike (CBX 750 FE).

Only downside, I bust my hand the other day can't ride the bike now
