Is that a Bandit/Fury frame?
Where's the A65 motor going?

Cheers

Hi Ian
The frame is an actual fury/bandit one suppose I should call it a bandit as its having a t100 engine in it.
The A65 is a 66 spitfire which I am slowly trying to get back to standard.

Typical "stir crazy" tasks. Example- cleaned out trash under the workbench for the first time since building this house 45 years ago. I discovered stuff I didn't even remember having.

Some of us have been working, and life carries on as normal. I wouldn't mind being sent home, I don't care for the illness bit, but assuming I was fit, I would be able to finish my bike shed......

My 72 A65 had a plain white tank which had a couple of noticeable dents.

Thought i'd try a bit of filling and aerosol (rattle can) spraying.

Still need to flat back and polish the clear coat lacquer, but definitely an improvement...
