Padmei thanks for the encouragement - she certainly does not look beautiful at the moment but I reckon she will do by the end of the project. I have got to say I am getting excited myself when I start to see little bits coming together. Once finished and powder coated she will look champion.

Here is a snapshot of the quad colin is building at the other end of the workshop, he is currently spray painting the bodywork. He has made almost every component on this from the chassis, to the footpegs, billet plate, various special fittings, front suspension tubes,Hub carriers steering geometry and linkages, cable and brake line carriers along with the very complex bodywork all from scratch Many of the parts are being re finished and painted but the brake levers are a work of art and you got to see the bodywork its so well made, sculptured and crafted - the mudguards are amazing. The paintwork he is doing at the moment on the sculptured bodywork is superb. I will photo the body work this week when he has finished painting and fitting it.

I'm always looking for a way to mount the dual Dynas out of the way but still run the wires. I came up with this setup which might give you some room on yours.

Hi Greg that is a really nice bracket for the Dynas very nice indeed, I think however on mine it may still hit the bottom edge of the tank with the HPN 43 litre tank fitted, And I have now made the bracket I it fits well (page 4 photos) sits under the front right side of the tank - I will photo the coils in place next time I am down at the workshop. But thanks for the photo and info - I do like your set up. I wont be at the workshop till next week due to work and stuff.

Cheers.

quick picture of the coils in place and the wiring loom is now 70% complete another day and the loom should be ready to put to one side till the chassis is ready for a test run. The drawings are done for the swing arm and Colin is preparing a one off jig to make extended swing arms.

I have spoke to klaus at HPN at last - we again got along fine so that is a relief - he is a really nice and helpful bloke, I bought a paintable 43 litre tank for the project and a paris dakar mudguard, he also gave me some advice on exhaust set up. Rob my welder has made a reverse action cam lever for the back brake - so now the brake arm goes up over rather than down and has been modifying the fairing frame so it fits correctly for the HPN fairing - he is trying to work out a good solution for a side stand and do the centre stand at the same time - he is now back at college so time is not as easy to get off him.I hope to finish the wiring harness next time I am down so should be able to photo that all done before I take it off and put that to one side. The Jig for the rear swing arm is also under way and may be ready when I next get down - anyone wanting swing arms made up - single or twin shock ? I am sure once you see the pictures and finished job - Rob and colin will be happy to make up extra swing arms for a reasonable price.

the bike progressed a bit the front end is all done fairing, headlamp and mudguard mounts in place the wiring harness finished, still waiting for the swing arm to be done, and I have received a very nice 2 into 2 sports exhaust from Keihan exhausts. A new paintable tank from HPN arrived along with the rear Paris Dakar mudguard, Photos to follow this week.
