On the graphics, is that a template/die line you made yourself?

I'd like to design my own down the road and a vector file of the die line would be grand. I'd be willing to pay a bit for it as well.

Graphics are from Crispy. The vector is proprietary

He does custom and doesn't charge much. The vinyl he uses is nice and thick. Highly recommend using his services

Those are interesting up close. Lots and lots of parts moved from the production bike- oil and battery up high and back, way bigger radiators, etc.

A favorite detail of mine is the fuel pickup from the "water tank" in the skidplate.

Slight differences but too many. I hadn't noticed a fuel pickup from the water tank...hmmm



Bike started today

Took a bit of lovin, the motor had sat inverted (full of oil) for a few months. A bit of spewing fluids from here and there, and a dead battery but she runs. After a few cycles of warming up the bike the "leaks" seem to have sorted themselves out and the bike has settled back into it's rattely old self again.

New front rubber showing up tomorrow and new brake line. Did a leak down test with the rear tanks and everything seems to be good.

Just for old times sake (well i forgot) I took the right front fuel tank off without turning the petcocks off, had a good laugh as my garage filled up with fumes and the floor got a cleaning. How many times I've done this I cannot even count anymore. Someday I'll remember

Hope to go riding this weekend, damn was that a long winter....stoked

A few centimeters higher off the front wheel though, correct if I'm wrong Pete. Mid-late summer if memory serves.

Not much to tell about the bike today, just collecting parts for the final build this weekend.
Identical to that - yes it'll be higher by approx 30mm. No rear stays so looks much neater.

I guess it's worth !
Life is more difficult when you are under the sun with bikes all around you instead of being at home, under the snow

True, watching and being surrounded by rally porn just makes the itch to ride even worse (not complaining ).
