    I had a visit from Dove on here ( my ex sidecar passenger) to give me a hand taking up slack on the jibs of the mill ( I watched) so we decided to give the mill a test run and machine the cylinder heads to straighten out the inlet track and make stubs to suit the Dellorto carbs. Don't fret the carb is 180 deg out!

    I headed down to Darlington yesterday to pick my outfit up from the fibreglass works, here is one reason why not to use a propane heater in your workshop, the chassis is covered in rust. Just as well he did a good job altering the seat and arch.

    You should have given it a coat of primer first I wouldn't think that propane heaters and fibreglass resin fumes would be a good mixture either - a potential to go BOOM

    Old enough to know better, young enough not to care

    The chassis shall be blasted and powder coated after a complete dry build so hopefully all the rust maggets shall be removed. No time spent on the bike over the holidays due to being in Ireland at the outlaws, I managed a couple of hours this afternoon though. Inlet track machined and new stub to take a Dellorto carb welded in place, having to use a short bell moth as the right hand cylinder sits further to the rear.
