Hi again.

I'm getting just that little bit closer to finishing. 4 and a half years on, here's where I'm at.....

I hope they work and are not too big.

I've just had the exhaust chromed, still got to sort the forward controls, 2 x carby's and levers, cables etc.

Not too far off now.

Hope you enjoy!

Cheers all for the positive feedback.

I am still a little ways off but it is definately taking shape.

The time factor isn't too much of an issue although I am now 4 and a half years older than when I started. =(

It's the money side of things that really hurts. But what do you expect?

Thanks again!!!!

Hi again.

I've since wrapped the pipes and mounted them.

I'm extremely happy although my triumph man described them in one word, 'ugly'. =(

Oh well, different courses for different horses I guess.

I hope you enjoy......

This is how I bought it. Still looks sharp in it's own right but needed a major overhaul.

Pretty well everything has been pulled apart and either rebuilt, rechromed and/or repainted.

It was a productive weekend for me!!!

Well done mate, I just love the clean, uncluttered look. Pure class.

How will I go with the rego?

Good question. From what I understand, the only real issue is the fact that my rake is technically 150mm over requirements. I have faith that when it comes to crunch time, I'll get it through. I'm working on the theory that if I rocked up to get a rwc and then rego, i'll probably struggle. If i get it done through an establishment that registers bikes in bulk, then there's a good chance it'll slip through with the rest of them

Time will tell.

Cheers Fluffer.

That's what i'm trying to achieve, the 'uncluttered' look.

The long front end and noise would be the major sticking points for reg I would think.

looks great though!

The other bike in the background is a mates BSA M20.
Another long term project. And I do mean 'long'........
As for noise levels, I have a set of silencers that bolt on in place of the straight pipes. I'll put them on for the RWC.
