    Not too sure why the last two pics appeared ^^, I'll drink the same wine tonight and see if I can remember....:dunno
    Some proper pics though...
    Stuff in the post and an expansion tank in production which will clip on to the right side or radiator.
    There is a suspicion that the pick up coil is throwing the odd wobbly so bought a new one.

    Love your work, and your ability to function after excessive wine intake too!

    Very interested in the rfid ignition, I have a Husqy 250 project that needs something like that, so please don’t skimp on the detail when you fit it

    Thanks for the links. So you decided against implanting the chip in hand.

    Thanks!!! The sun hits my garage doors and makes it like an oven ready for me to cook when I get back from work, I'm in there til 10 every night at the moment doing lots of finishing jobs that seem to make no difference. I feel closer tonight with a pretty short to do list really.
    Can't even get a cold beer til next week as on call with work....:2cry

    Been snagging loads of stuff but tried to make it interesting with some pics below. Main job is the wiring finish which I hope to do soon, aim to be on the road next Wednesday.

    As I fooked up the lock stop positions I had to fettle up a little E shaped spacer to knock in to the loop, quite time consuming but doesn't look too much of a lash up.

    Making up little Ti brackets, this one for the temp gauge. Might as well attack it with the torch to make it pretty even if you can't see it.


    IMG_0766.JPG


    This one holds the cables from the genny down as it was rubbing the clutch cable.


    IMG_0757.JPG


    This lot went for gloss black powder today.


    IMG_0767.JPG


    Addressing the oil leaks, surprising what actually fitting an o ring can do :doh


    IMG_0769.JPG


    Tacho blank I made wasn't up to it so got a blank machined then whittled it in to shape. Much better.


    IMG_0772.JPG

    IMG_0773.JPG

    IMG_0775.JPG


    A couple of nylon spacers now behind front board and while paint dried on tacho plug I pinstriped round the outside, better.


    IMG_0774.JPG


    Fitted a better size clamp on the water pump to fix the weep there and re-filled. That's the temp of the coolant in my garage at 9 tonight......in England !!!!!

    Yep, pretty fucking warm! I've had enough in the garage, managed an hour or so, can't resist a cold one now.
    Got the rear brake pivot stub done, still no powder coating from my new 'next day' service, of course. In a year or so I hope to have a workshop set up so I don't have to rely on these people...
    Lever is from a GSXR 600, I used one for a gear lever on my Metisse. Spotted it and thought, hang on, that will work nicely!


    IMG_0777.JPG


    IMG_0779.JPG


    Lock wired the grips of course....


    IMG_0781.JPG


    Put the #1 on the side boards and realised I should have fitted and drilled them first-one of my specialities :doh


    IMG_0782.JPG


    Beer time.


    IMG_0780.JPG


    H had 150ml of saline sub-cutaneous which he's getting used to followed by a little chilled tuna on the lawn.

    You think you could ship him over and get him to do something about our bloody moles?

    Been giving the Wild Bill IPA from Aldi a pasting over the last couple of days. BiL was to blame, he worked out how to use our bottle opener.

    The devil is in the detailing, Belzebub. Yours looks demonic.

    The current Mrs Wildebeest is about £5K in this year restoring a vintage cat, I bet I wouldn't get medical care like that! I'd be on a one way flight to Dignitas :hack
