Looking very good matey. Let me know when you're ready for your frame powder coating. Can't wait for us to be churning up some miles. Are you gonna blast your frame or go down the more gentle, but labourious, route of nitromorsing?

Yep, don't know if they've changed the formula but modern day Nitromors won't take the skin of a rice pudding. I wound up stripping my tank with a rotary wire brush on a DeWalt drill, drastic, but I was losing the will to live!

Seat and tank have landed from the states, but a small amount of damage to the tank bracket which i will need to tend too.
It looks the DB's.

Wheel hubs have gone of to Central wheel components today for morad TC rims and stainless spokes.

Got the frame back from powder coating, curtesy of Dazzler (12hr turn around).
But the swing arm showed some serious signs of metal worn after blasting, so a replacement has been ordered from DK Spares.
Been on with the wiring over the weekend.
Anyway here are a few more pictures of whats been happening.

Forgot to mention, trying to find a battery to fit in the seat hump has proved to be very expendsive. With such a small area it was impossible to fit a gel battery, the only option left was a lithium battery from Racing Batteries. Measures an incredible 118 x 86 x 80mm and is rated for road use.
So bear in mind when planning your build, the look you want could be an expensive one.

Hoping the wheels will be arriving in the next week or so, Looking forward to a rolling chassis at last.

Got the forks fitted and all the wiring buttoned up. Just waiting for the wheels to come back, and i can get it of the bench.
Looking forward to fabricating the exhaust system and finally getting the bike up and running.
