    I don't have one but can make you a CAD file to have one laser/water cut if you like. It's just stainless steel plate. Or it could be made pretty quick by hand for that matter. Can send you/post a drawing if you like too.
    Running a bit short on time to make you one right now. Maybe over the xmas new year break though.

    I'm not in a hurry and it's doesn't have to be a perfect replica, just functional.

    Am prepared to pay if you could whip one up sometime.

    The loom is complete and, so far, all the basic circuits (lights, horn, indicators, crank) appear to be functional. I'm yet to check for spark and charge.

    The loom now needs to be taped and the heat shrink shrunk.

    This has been the biggest learning curve for me, and so far it looks pretty rewarding - but I'm not counting my chickens just yet.

    Feels good to see some life in the old girl again. Tomorrow night will hopefully be the big one - I'll give her some fuel and see what happens!

    Yeh it's a good look alright.
    I think my bike is good as far as looks go for now, well until I change my mind again anyway.

    Sorting the carbs at the mo. Actually that's an exageration. Lifes getting in the way a bit. But I'll be back on it in the near future. But you know this already Guz.

    I have riden the bike, and it went pretty well, considering the fact that I'd not addressed the jetting and it ran like a bucket of puss. Then it broke a carb needle and I ran out of time to sort it because other projects were forced up the priority list. So it sits and taunts me every time I walk past it.

    More photos and ride reports coming soon, I hope.
    I'm planning to do the capital coast adventure ride on it so I need to get it sorted!

    clearly they shoehorned everything onto a r90 bike. Very professional job for northland.

    Ohh so tempting...

    I've been thinking about getting a trail only bike and that could/would be a hoot.

    OK, B.O - I've just caught a glimpse of your machine on the CCA ride report over at KB. Let's see some pics of it in the dirt!

    Anyone here pick up that r90s?

    Sadly I forgot to take my camera on the CCA. But thankfully a mate brought his and took some snaps. Sorry there's no action shots, but here's proof it works.

    The day went brilliantly and so did the bike.

    For the event I fitted hand guards and refitted the Bings (ran out of time to tune the Mikunis).
