How waterproof was it?
I saw it floating out the estuary last weekend. should be good till the tyres start losing air
More rainy days now so starting again. made a stand to get it up to a decent height, ordered some parts from Germany and done way too much internetting to get ideas.
How do you cure scope creep?
Cool pic of a benelli granp prix 250cc singles timing gears. Did they not have chains back then? Upside down for some reason.
is that like underhead cam?
Fcuked if I can spin the pic around. Just hold your screen upside down.
Made up some new seat mounts for the café seat, and am attempting to recover the seat, maybe. Got some new s/hand headlight mounts from Germany and will start polishing them up soon. Trying to figure out how and where to mount battery and taillight assembly. basically just mocking things up at the moment before pulling apart and repainting the frame as I am over the red frame at this time. Might fire it up this weekend to see if it still runs.
And I thought it was some cool up side down motor like in aeroplanes...
hows the wheel re-spokeing going....
Will do it soon enough, but its all the little shit that is getting my attention at the moment. Just enjoying pottering around in the shed now its organised and tidy.
The bike has become more of a restoration than a café build now. Still won't be standard, but not far off it.
Finally made my rear set mounts and a gear lever this arvo. Some finishing to do with a buffer, but I haven't got one and tool budget has taken a hit with a new washing machine, house insurance and other shite like that.
Decided on right foot gear change 1 down/4 up. Wanted 1 up/4 down but their is too much shit in the way for the linkages to work properly.
Will try to take pics with my phone later as cameras succumbed to water and dust.
Crappy pics, friggen photo uploading debacle.
Not a benelli, but way coooooool
Quite mesmerising really.
6 cyl bikes - noise to give you wood man

Progress. Lots of polishing painting,sourcing and head scratching.
Apologies again for crappy cellphone pics, still haven't got a new camera
Thats starting to look pretty kool now...
Nice vid, no Benellis
First tornado I've seen on Tme for a lonng time.
Pity abut the paint scheme.
Yeah Na there is another one on autotrader? too for a similar price.
Got some new flanged alloy rims from the States cheap the other week and after getting them back from the wheel guy, fitted new tyres and put the wheels on the bike. Looked good, then I took it off the work bench, stood back and couldn't stop grinning like a fool and laughing at the wee thing. Is that normal ? who cares, I am happy
The usual crappy cell phone pics.
