having just read through the whole thread, i dont know whether to give up now, or pray that in many years time, i may be able to build something thats allowed in the same carpark.

respect, and then some Smile

I don’t want to thread-jack so sorry mig
Beekeeper I’ve also been building for years and started with zero mechanical or fabrication knowledge long before the convenience of the internet ,I started with just bolt on and off parts and self taught myself to taking on complete builds including making my own frames let me tell you I aint always got it right in fact I’ve built some out and out frankinstiens but loved every minute of it so get cracked on mate its only metal what’s done can be undone if we build or create something half as good as migs 750 build we would have decent bike
Joining this forum and soaking up some of the knowledge these guys have got as given me a far better insight into cafe racers

Right. Back to the build, I have had a major issue with the BCR tank. The tank cap would not seal due to the filler neck being badly made.
So I have made a new filler neck to fit over the old one and works a treat.
Tank is sealed and of to the paint shop in five days. Front alloy mudguard has been fitted.
Looking forward to getting some miles on it. And the weather is starting to warm up.

I bought a set of early GSX-R 750 Mikuni 33mm Flatslides from eBay
With the intention of fitting them to the CB. What a pile of crap. Float bowls are corroded through.
Bodies are ok. But you can't get replacement bowls.
I will clean up the bodies and put them back on EBay.
Expensive lesson.

Seat and tank painted. Just waiting on the tank decals then several coats of clear. Booked the mot for next week. Fitted some db killers to the zaust just to be on the safe side.
I will post some video when done.

Got a few teething problems. Carbs are bogging out at 5k rpm. So fitted the stock air box and filter. The seat is as comfortable as sitting on a cheese wire. So new carbs are being located and some comfort mods to be made to the seat.
Thanks to all with their posts of jealousy.

Looks awesome Mig. BTW, I'm with Pud on this, that looks awfully cheap, seen a lot worse on t'bay for far more. Do hope this doesn't mean you're 'effin orft?
