PS, you can shove all the leccy bits in the hollow behind the headstock. Takes a bit of buggering around but its possible, check my build thread for details :smile:

JUst had a look at ya thread, nice bike you started with there mate. For now i'm keeping my wheels, swingarm and rear end. Originally i had planned on swapping them all but budget and the fact i'd like to use the bike this year have delayed those mods. For now i'll be happy just cleaning up and fixing whats there and making a few subtle changes for now.

Exhaust studs havent stressed me out yet coz i've not even thought about them, i'm just hoping a local mechanic will say 'yeah i can get them out easy'.

I did notice that empty area behind the headstock, looks like it was just made to have all the wires etc shoved in there.

Been a few problems so far but hey i definately didnt expect things to go smoothly.

Ok so as a few of you know by my posts this week i've had the odd problem but hey its all part of the fun. I've stripped the bike down much further than ever intended but i'm hoping it will all be worth it in the end.

Over the next week i hope to clean the engine up a bit along with all the parts which i've taken off. Also this week the intension is to send the wheels, rear spring, side stand, fork lowers and possibly a few other bits to be powder coated.

Most of the bodywork is now undercoated and depending on time i might try and get some of that topcoated but its not a major priority.

Anyway here's a couple of pics of where i'm at





Really not so sure i'm gonna have a clue on how it all goes back together.

Slight bit of progress today as i had a couple of hours to spare. Removed the part of the top yoke where the ignition barrel fits, gave it a bit of a polish then fitted risers and bars. Bottom yoke is painted black, ideally would like to polish it up to match the top one but I hate polishing stuff now.

Cheers guys, I Dont think thee wil be any other parts which will be getting polished up but it depends on the condition of things as i clean them.

Rybes i did buy a manual on a disc of fleabay but it was crap so might get myself a proper one tonight, i know i'm gonna need it when it comes to rebuilding the bike. It would be nice to have it on the road by the end of the month and i see no reason why it shouldnt be as long as there are no major problems
