    Not got a lot done since the last update got the engine mounts made IMG_20210110_221825_971.jpg 20210110_220734.jpg

    And started polishing the rear hub and engine a long way off mirror finish but it already look like it's not been in a bog

    Not sure if I'm pissing in the wind still updating this thread but even if nobody's following it give me a good place to track the build
    Not been a lot of activity as I'm still waiting for the 2.50 x 19 rim for the rear so I can get it all spoked up and do the mudgaurd and that but I did manage to get a foot "peg" concept mocked up I suppose you'd call them "high mid micro rocker boards" but anyway the plan is to have them on a bit of 16mm bar and sprung loaded so when you too your foot forward it pulls the brake/clutch these are only a rough mock up the real ones will be made of stainless and be stretched to the frame with a bolt on l bracket that sits between the carbs.

    I'm all over it. Keep it going!
    I get the same feeling on mine. Although, I am doing it for myself as much as anyone on here, I want to document my progress as well and maybe look back on it someday down the road when I'm on my 20th build and reflecting on what I may have done different.
