Re-Birth

It's not finished, but it is re-born. Last night I got the front brakes bled and working and mounted the speedo sensor. This morning the second, perfect, incarnation of the seat arrived. The suspension needs setting up (which I need to save some moolah for), oil strainer crush washer needs re-seating/re-placing to stop oil drip, speedo needs calibrating. Top yoke will need re-powder coating (again). But.....at last this is a complete bike.

Sneaky very short ashphalt christening tomorrow. As far as I concerned my deadline will have been met. I couldn't be happier.

To this:









Rescued from neglect, pushed through a house, re-born in a shed, raised by chickens....

  3. Hi Mr Cutter
    Things you note now the Beast is whole, back together in posh togs and in the sun.
    The tank with the glint of the green stripe -  makes you drool.
    The bars are so low love that cafe racer look. love the black frame, and that front mud guard is ace and hugs the wheel so tight, the flashes of color, the blue, gold, and red setting it all off, the seat was worth the change its perfect.
    It just oozes sex appeal, love your work, can I get on the waiting list for one.

    Good luck with the tarmac blast, please post a video.
