I did alright on the sale, the bike was £400, I spent anouther £500 on it and sold it for £1,900

Trike???!!!Bwah-hahahahahahaha yeah I rekon.

My next project is a hybrid its gonna be a Cafefighter. A Honda VTR1000 engine in a highly modded 1200 Bandit frame.



















I'll be starting another thread when I get a bit more done. I'm doing a few upgrades to my workshop at the moment and its taking all my spair time, but I hope I've managed to wet your appatite. Very Happy

Dude, this is all going very well - but might I suggest a smaller battery?, as it's dictating the size of your rear hump. There are lots of LiFePo options that are not stupid money from the likes of Shorai and RacingBatteries.co.uk.

In fact there are also smaller Gel batteries out there that can mount sideways. My old YB12BBS mounts sideways and is quite slim for a Lead battery with loads of CCA.

Anyway, really loving your detailed pics and this thread. Keep it up.

That's an Allan Key socket, you can buy them in sets or individually from Halfords (other tool stores are available!) The direction of rotation depends on wether it's right or left hand thread, but they should never be so tight as to not be moveable one way or the other.

If you try it with a breaker bar, or failing that a piece of thick pipe that will fit over the handle of your ratchet to give you extra leverage they should come out.

If they are still being stubborn try lying the frame on it's side and flooding the spindle with penetrating fluid such as WD40 and leaving overnight.
