I agree. Tank was made for it waytogo. That looks roadster good.

Pic of the other seat?

Today I made up some cables for the FCR’s.  as they are split I have used a cable junction box, and made up the cables from scratch, including the brass nipples which I have soldered on.

here is a link to a video to see the action...  waytogo

Nice manifolds too.

thanks! waytogo

Lockdown is good for progress!  I have finished the frame modifications to clear the carbs, and finished the fabrication on the rear subframe so it's off to the powder coaters tomorrow.

I have also stripped the rear shocker so I can change the colour on the spring...  not sure what to yet, but definitely not yellow!  had to make a clamp as these are strong springs and I have the utmost respect when working with them under this much tension, hence the beefy plate and studs!

And here is the engine...

Really like those manifolds. They appear to have more volume than stock carb manifolds which is good for the intake port to cylinder volume ratio. 👍

yes, they are 41mm inside diameter so quite a bit bigger than standard 900 ones...

One of the things I have always struggled to get done is plating... I have had some terrible jobs done in the past, and lost critical small parts to the bottom of someone's plating vat!

so about 4 years ago I bought a plating kit to do zinc... Have to say it's VERY good and I have used it time and time again! its a bit time consuming, but time is something I have, particularly at the moment...

Here are the results for my latest build. the kit can do clear and yellow passivation, you can see the difference.

Nice result.
Something I haven't tried with a few local platers nearby. You had control of the process and volume, so any issues to consider DIY?

How do you clean them before?

Follow up:
did you have a clear unoccupied table for this purpose? That's not normal....
