    Old Dog: I hadn't taken him into consideration.
    But, I will not yield. Not yet anyway.
    Not a bad write-up in the ADVrider mag.

    There is/was a leak in the front tyre but I replaced the valve today and if its still dodgy I pumped the back up so I can take some out of there. :huh Plan B, noo toob...

    Have stuck on old bark busters, new grips and old red hand buckets on to clash dynamically with the overall cosmetic image :mully

    Hey Pez! Do ya know I could have put this info on three threads!? Yer influence is spreading :bow Gotta be good for Downs (and quality shed time, but that is just a by-product) onya mate!

    Well OldDog came up for a visit and a few Strawberry Daiquiri's :bert

    Anyhow under hs arm he had this old XR600 Tank, so off we went to the back shed, dragged out the old CB frame, engine and stuck 'em together.

    Looks like some half decent lines :evil

    I just picked up some "parts" which have turned out to be a near complete blue 1970 honda sl175 so it's off to the BILs shed for some TLC. I still have to collect another little honda from safekeeping at Old Dogs place.... so we may well have a selection of little honda twins rolling off the (re)production line for SAR#6....

    Pezz,

    I just had a flash..... e-mail me a diagram with dimensions of what you need in the way of a swingarm, I may be able to get one of the spares in the shed cut and shut by my tig welding contractor (I do his computer shit at werk, he does a bit of melting metal for me)

    Send me a few pics Joe and I will host Em for you!! Year of the twins.???

    Gordy, thanks buddy
    I pick up the potential rear wheel in a week or two. Right now I have to get it running for the Tiddlers Rally.
    As there is a case of beer resting on that :)
    I also need to order a TW-40 rear tyre for it. Might have to come from the USA
    The forks are slightly bent so drop them off to Laurie Alderton's
    The taper bearings you put me onto arrived too

    So Gordy
    What carbie do you think I should keep an eye out for?
    I have a spare FCR39 off a DRZ but the might be slightly overkill :D

    Maybe

    28mm or 30mm throttle slide carb on the stock manifold, or a pair of CV's and stubs off a 250T or N model CB

    Well a nice cool and misty rainy day made for a fun shed day :evil

    I got this CB250 in boxes and it was pretty straight forward to start puting it back together. So this is a check fit to see what I have and dont. Still need to make a new subframe for the seat and rack behind the seat.

    Working out the wiring harness was quite simple. Just a few questions to find out what ends where ???

    I have the new steering head bearing from Pyramid Parts off ebay, thanks for the heads up Gordy :thumb

    [​IMG]

    Also looking for a suitable 16" knobbie for the rear . . .

    So far the Bridgestone TW-40 120/90/16 seems to be top of the list . . . I am open to suggestions here . . .

    Any one else been playing . . . . . :ear

    The TW is probably as good as it gets, I run all surfaces on pirelli road tyres but that is just a case of I cant ride for shit so it doesn,t matter that much. :)

    I have 17 inch front off an FZR600, wonder if you could put a sprocket carrier on it and fit a 120 knobby, you'd have to whack a disc rear brake on it (would make for great skids)
