Another Fleabay aquisition, and I am looking forward to turning this in to a cafe racer! :)

I am in the process of sourcing used 35mm Ceriani forks (current ones stanchions are on the weedy side) and possibly a ventilated front drum from the states. I can source tank, seat, bars, rear-sets replica Ala doro items in the uk.

Pics as the bike is now....

This will help you with sourcing the seat unit and fairing if you need one, he is currently making the mould for the seat now spoke to Spike last week as I need one for a future project. Get yer order in may spur him on to get it finished.

Remember VAT to be added and with being a race seat it may be thin, you could always beef up with a layer or two of glass fiber and resin if there is not too much happening on the other side due to having the padding fitted already. Ragged edge will layer it up when making one for you.

Thanks Sam. You could be, and probably are right. Do you know how much Ragged Edge would be for the complete covered shebang?

It is coming along 'butifully'. It should be ready for a pre-1930 vintage gathering for me to ride on in September........:)

Progress can be monitored here........click on the OEC Blackburne Story.

Have you looked inside the motor yet? I don't see a magneto on it, nor a carburettor, nor brakes! Your going to have a lot of fun ;) :)

If you are looking for a better brake the cb 250/350 K2 180mm dia twin leading shoe works ok with decent linings fitted. This guy fitted the whole drum and plate I am going to machine the plate to fit the Ducati drum. Should get one for around 40 on fleabay.

Motors a runner....magneto and carb in the house and ready to go on, brake rubbers being re-lined/ replaced with something from a Kwacker (wont be seen) so that it does stop!!! Cabling to be made up, levers/grips to fit on, mudguards to silver solder a few cracks, exhaust to fit to head and mount to frame, fork springs to bolt on........just a few things to do.....a few weeks work only Derek...;) :D
