Most motorcycle problems are caused by the nut that connects the handlebars to the saddle.

Back home for 2 days.
Yesterday I went to my dads and changed the battery for a motorbatt one. Bike now won't start due to the plugs fouling up due to the bike not been run properly.

So today I managed to get 3 hours while I've been at home to work on a few odd bits. Spent all my time on the swingarm hub.
A massive circlip was holding everything tight, managed to remove that with the new pliers, I managed to prize everything else part using the hammer as it was pretty seized up. Reassembled it with lm2 grease for now, just need to get the bearings ordered for the rear hub once I next get paid. Then the trumpet rear axle will fit.

I've sadly also come to the conclusion that I won't be getting this bike finished in time for the build off. As it'll be hard to explain to someone else (my mum) to talk to a machine shop about what work I need doing. I hope to get home soon between jobs to get it all sorted out as then things will quickly come together I hope.

Small ish update, rebuilt the rear hub and got the axle now compatible with the hub, thanks to Cookie and his thread for the info on what bearing I needed. I've since acquired a rear caliper that needs to be ultrasonically cleaned, stirpped, painted and rebuilt (got the seals at least). Replaced the battery with a motobatt as it's the only battery I can find that isn't a maintenance one. Got the correct spacers for the front calipers. Need to replace the spark plugs as they fowled up.

Dropped off the stem and yokes at my local machine shop this morning and was quoted £50, I was expecting to pay about £45 so I'm fairly pleased. So they should be done in a few days.... in which I'll be working away again. dam.

Payday next week so I'll be ordering the fully adjustable clip ons, some bolts to hold on the front mudguard and a few other bits to atleast get the front end sorted out. I know I won't get this finished by the end of the build off but damm once I've got the machine work done things will progress quickly.

Well with the build off over can I request this to be moved to the member project's section of the site.

Other updates, after I dropped off the yokes with an estimated turn around time of 3 days... 5 weeks later they're still sat in the office so I found another local machine shop and took them there, I've taken the swingarm there.

The guy at the machine shop I'm now using has 3 custom built bikes which are beautiful. They have quoted me much better for the work than the other place too

The clipons I ordered have gotten lost so they're reshipping those.

Oh and I finally got the bike home.

Moved the bike into the garden not sure how that happened as I'm under mothers ruling not to ride/push/move any of my bikes.. Embarassed
But what she doesn't know can't harm her 👍

Damm I'm in love already :rock:

Test fitted the fiberglass panels that are getting painted for fitment - need to cut out the hold for the rear light.

Managed to trace, mask and transfer the cutout I need for the rear light on the fiberglass rear cowling... it's surprisingly hard doing it one handed but I managed to get it within 1mm of difference. The fiberglass is no where near to the oem panel either so I'm pleased.

Well got my pot removed today, so dropped off the tank, sidepanels, rear cowl, rear subframe and rear caliper dropped off at the paint shop.

I've been rethinking about the rear shock setup, since the dogbone triangles stuff not making sense in my head I came across 370steve's hornet thread where he got a bracket welded to the swingarm and running a conventional suspension setup without honda's "pro arm" BS... definitely food for thought

My mum only started work at 11am and the machine shop opens at 8:30, don't need to explain that any further.

Very cool.

That bike (with the bit of wood in the middle and no engine) looks like a really cool version of one of those kids balance bikes... Wink

Glad to see it's starting to come together.

Well I went to pick up the body work today, since it's been there for - well since the middle of June.
Only thing which has been completed is the rear subframe. The other panels and the tank have only had 1 colour (white) applied out of the 3. He's had 4 weeks of advance notice that I was coming to collect them today.
Not happy as I've had to call in two favours in order to travel up there today. On a plus note he's done a good job of masking the threads on the subframe, overall pretty gutted and disappointed.

Paint job done.. 18 and a half weeks later after I dropped them off... but really disappointed with the decal placement on the tank. I'll admit the size of the decal is wrong by my own doing but it's nothing like the images I sent.
Thankfully I have another 2 spare tanks at home so I'll get them resprayed at either one of the paint shops that [MENTION=20223]370steve[/MENTION] has kindly recommended to me.

This is one of the images I sent to him to copy from.

Paint done and collected. Still not 100% happy but I didn't want to wait any longer so happy to have it back.

Doesn't stick out too far either which is nice. Should look much more at home once there is a set of clocks ontop there.

As I said before I needed to pass my full licence (I'm currently on a restricted 46.6bhp licence) Well I bought another bike to do my tests on Saturday.
I've been lucky with the availability as they're usually booked up for months. Today is Tuesday and I've passed the first part of my unrestricted licence. Hopefully I pass the second part tomorrow morning.

I've finally got the copper shim shorted out for the adjustable clipons, Nothing a little bit of Cookie's "persuasion engineering" with a bit of wood couldn't sort out Wink

Wow so it's been a year to the day since I started this thread.. definitely not done for the build off.

Other news, I've now got a proper licence passed my mod2 yesterday- none of this restricted horsepower shit anymore.

For those who don't understand the **modern** E.U system
category A1 licence is for people aged 17-19. This restricts you to a 125cc bike
category A2 licence is for people aged 19-23. This restricts you to 47bhp
category A licence is for people aged 24+ or to A2 licence holders who have held their licence for more than 2 years (me).

Each one of these tests has 2 parts, mod1 and mod2. Mod1 is slow maneuvers, mod 2 is on the road. I've had to do both these modules for my A2 and then repeat the exact same tests again but on a bigger bike.

Very little I can do now myself really. So decided to test fit the rear cowling cutout worked for the rear light - works well. Which meant moving the bike off the lift, though about 9 months of shite from outside the shed door (took a couple of hours alone) just to get the bike out!!

I'm happy with the front end - so much so that the fork clamps are almost identical and the bars are about 25mm/1 inch lower than the stock. Over research on picking the length of forks paid off nicely.

So my current list is from the front;

Correct size wheel spacers
swap the front wheel round so it's facing the correct direction
custom fork stops maybe cnc bolt over the standard ones? £££
2nd set of 50mm fork clamps for the headlight
Clocks and custom bracket
Drill holes for switch gear(s)
De-rust tank and re-seal
Offset front sprocket + chain and sprocket kit
internal spacer for the swingarm
Rear shock linkage
Custom seat cover??
swap over the rear mastercylinder
measure a brake hose long enough for running through the swingarm
re-rust the rear axle + nut and buy socket to fit the damd thing

Test ride

Strip back to frame and rebuild
custom exhaust system

Short test ride and there is something affecting the steering, probably too much tension on the bearings, though i'm loving the stance!

Got some metal plate from Steve and started work on my lockstops.

Found that I can use the old fairing mounting points for the stops. :winning:

Then suddenly I sneezed.

Ordered the spacer I need for the swingarm then the swingarm will be going in, then it's the headache of the shock linkage.

Attempted the molasses derusting method and one tank leaked all the fluid all over. One tank holding strong.
Onwards to Glasgow and back home..

One of the lock stops have being made as close as can be for now.

The bearing spacer I ordered came and pressed that into the SSS bearing, so now I can be on with fitting that.

Managed to get the standard swingarm out. 14mm and 12mm internal hex plugs WTF.

Bollocks! Bollocks!! Bollocks!!!

The swingarm I had machined to fit in my spare frame doesn't fit in my actual bike. Managed to trim down the spacers enough with the angle grinder to get it to fit but it's very tight.

As I were tightening one of the swingarm pins in place it suddenly felt a bit tight but thought it was just some dirt in the thread, one entire rotation later I decided to back it out and sure enough it's cross threaded.. piss and boloooockkkksss.
