    Update, frame back from the painters, engine and gearbox (put new bearings in the G back together.








    Hopefully get the side brackets and the bottom triple clamp back for the weekend and then the front and back end can all go back on.

    Every time I see that red hoist with the yellow sticker on the side, I keep thinking you went out and a Ferrari badge magicked into your pocket then onto your hoist

    The hoist doesn't break down enough to be a Ferrari

    Seat unit slowly getting there. I'm in the process of making some stays for the subframe plates to bolt to the footrest plates, should have that done tonight.\
    At the back of the plates, i have a light that bolts on. One that all fits, i'll machine out some seat plate with some funky grooves and then anodise them.
    Then I guess I'll use a ducati 1098 type of seat and make some brackets to fit up. After that a seat hump over the back. I am trying to get All the electronics under the tank one some brackets against the frame. Only electrics in the subframe will be for the stop light and indicators. This will make changing back to the original subframe and seat pretty easy.

    Looks mean. That tank shape really lends itself to the more aggressive geometry.

    Exciting to see the machine coming together... i get to live a custom builders life vicariously through your work
    The seat angle looks very steep towards the tank unit - you might become numb nuts by more than name!

    Hey mate, yeah it looks steep, but let me draw your attention to the bodgy drawing showing the extra depth of padding around the crotch area to cushion said testicles....

    very rough drawing...

    Haven't been doing much on the bike, been too busy at work
    One thing that has been holding up progress is how to buy or make velocity stacks.
    There were some plastic ones that are 3D printed but i just couldn't.
    I like machined parts. Which us of course why i went to the trouble of getting a lathe and mill to make bits.
    So ive been searching machining forums to see how to make the inside radius curve on the billet and still after a month of looking i can't find anyone who is as silly as me to want to do it.
    There is no off the shelf tool so i had to design and make it myself.
    Two parts to this. Firstly i want pod filters and secondly i want proper stacks.

    Anyway... heres how they turned up.
