thanks for the kick up my rump guys. i've finally got some time to get through all the batles of moving and setting up a new home shop. i could cry about how much work it is, but i'll show some photos instead. a picture is a bazillion words, eh?

yeah... it's too bad to show. i took pics from a few different angles and nothing looks great. i finished wiring the kitchen today. the framing is complete, except for the wall shared with the shop, which the drywall has to come through tomorrow. once the drywall is in the kitchen i get to the radiant (hot water) floor heating in the shop... then concrete hopefully next week or the week after. the hoist is coming first week of december, which i need to get the audi ready for the alcan 5000 rally in february... and there's daytona at the end of january... getting the idea updates may be few and far between? ... i also have 3 kids under 10!

excuses aside! as soon as there's heat and power in there i promise a minimum of 8 hours a week on the bike! until then lets see some guzzi porn!

Ha ha! I'm too shy to show mine off, besides I've taken mine all the way down again because I'm shopping for a painter right now. Colin, while you were away I managed to get my 600RR forks and brake rotors mounted to my stock spoked rims... nothing that a $100 chunk of billet aluminum and 5 hours at the lathe/mill couldn't solve! Maybe by the time Colin gets an update photo for us, I will have some of my bike back together and I will have something worth sharing.

I am stalking this thread by the way

Ok... we're getting closer. The powder coat is done, once my new fork seals are here I will send B-Rod a photo and maybe he will post it for us. I love this part of the build, bolting on clean, painted / refinished parts is pretty rewarding after months of deconstruction and reconstructing.

Well, in lieu of us waiting for Loaded to toss a few crumbs to his patient followers... here's a photo of my previously mentioned project. Paint is scheduled for the 1st week of April so I have very little time to figure out what I'm doing with my fenders. I thought I might like the CBR600RR front fender on this bike, but it just doesn't jive with the spokes. I sort of like the old Kawasaki fender (red) but I need to find a similar style one for the rear to make it work. Any suggestions are appreciated!

chad! your bike looks awesome! good choice on welders too. same as mine as for fender i'm not sure the best way to do it either. i think a nice stainless hugger and a couple sheetmetal brackets may be the cool/simple option.

as for my bike... it's still there and i drool on her when she lets me. there are a few changes (the tank shop tank and seat are going away, for example)... but she's still sleeping in a nice warm room in my basement.

not like i'm sleeping all day. i just got back from the alcan5000. third time at it and i finally made the cover of autoweek! ok... maybe that's not a good thing

AAAAAHAHAHAHAHAHHAhhhh!

I saw the start date of July 30 2010 and thought yes that one will be finished by now, I can do a start to finish read of a project. What happened? The thoughtless project manager lets work family and moving house get in the way.

Now it's racing season again and it won't get finished until the end of the year. I don't even know what year

Great work so far Loaded.

Looking good Chad. Not only did you actually break out a real camera for a picture, but you actually figured out how to post one.

Can't wait to buy it off you Only wish I had some say in the colour. Never liked the looks of the 1000S, and prefer the red/ black of the 750S

Thanks guys! Colin, there is a cut down stainless fender on ebay for a Suzuki Tempter that I have been looking at for a bit too. It has almost enough spread between the stanchions, and the mounting holes are almost wide enough (75mm) to get around those fat fork legs. The other upside is that I do have a rather sweet rear fender that would work with that style fender too. I think if one of us spent a little time, we could come up with a clever intermediary bracket between the fork and the fender stay, that would solve the "almost" part of the fender equation.

B-Rod, if it's any consolation, nobody had any say in the colour of this bike, since 1991 it has been destined to John Deere green! When you're ready to take on stewardship of this rig, I will help you change out the colours!

Oh nostalgia, it's not the first time it's bitten you.
