    A little update, not a great lot done, but busy with another project, needed the body work back to carry on with this one, was painted by Tony Graham parks in Sheffield, the paint work is perfect, I cannot fault any of it, the bottom of the tank is as good as the top, just a shame it isn't sunny here, its a pearlescent paint so needs natural light to see it, has a hint of purple in the house, all the body work is fitted, the tank mudguard and seat unit is only loosely fitted, was desperate to see what it looked like.

    Oh and that's the color it's going, blue grape pearlescent, all blue apart from silver GIA decals on the tank.

    Not a great lot to update on this, work covid etc has slowed it a little, I,ve actually worked more cos of bloody covid, wiring is 99%done, basically brake/clutch lines to do and few bits and pieces, please ignore the exhaust its only fitted for sva purposes. Still trying to find a company who can do a billet cam cover. Body work is off to Sheffield today to a well known painter, the whole lot needs stripped and restarted, as the previous painter totally messesd it up and didn't finish it, never trust a Fred in a shed who can only quote lines from YouTube, an expensive lesson learnt.

    Not a great lot to really update on here, most of the wiring has been done, but waiting on a headlight turning up along with casings from redsix, look qaulity stuff but their fooking slow. Picked up my rebuilt engine from rooster racing, the man's a genius and promises it will be a proper arm puller of a lump Decided I can't live with the gold on the ohlins forks, so their getting polished, i can live with a gold sprocket/chain but thats it, the forks look tacky in my eyes. Few pics, I'm sure most will not like the engine colour, I do and thats what matters. Exhaust is temp

    Cam covers

    Are the cam/rocker covers swappable between 11s 12s etc, or is there a difference?

    Well no real work done to this, been out the country for a couple of month with work, only been home a few days but started wireing loom, bit of a mare, motogadget speedo cables are fooking tiny, Duke seat unit has little space for everything, started on an exhaust, its going for an sva so needs to be all legal etc, this won't be the final exhaust, its just for sva. Rooster racing has nearly built my engine, his work is amazing, the head work is porn, once i have the lump ill paint it and fit it, undecided on a colour scheme, but i do have a nice pearlescent blue which I,d like to use with ano

    Made a start on it today, got the engine out, was only empty lump, wasn't sure where to actually start so thought I'd start on electrics, needed a mount for the motogadget speedo, I did have a set of bars that held the speedo, but looked like they came out of halfords, bit fun with the grinder and drill and one speedo holder fitted, needs sanded off etc but its a start

    Finally picked it up today, totally exhausted, months of worry stress etc gone, feels like massive load off my shoulders, now to form a plan and get stuck in, but for next couple days I would just like some private time with the new bitch in my life
