It still needs a bit of snagging but thanks.
After all you had a part in it Mark, doing the inner timing cover work for the oil filter conversion plus supplying various parts.

Found that I had some cracking round the inlet pipe for the black box silencer, so I have had to improvise until I get it repaired, I will be substituting the bit of steel and metal cable tie for a welded stainless bracket later on at work. :)

I built up an 8" conical front wheel earlier in the week, from a hub aquired at Stafford in April and a stainless rim and spokes delivered from Central Wheel.

My mate picked up a tatty chrome front mudguard up for £2 from the Newark jumble last weekend.It will be ok with a rub down and a coat of paint.
Today after I got up after my last night shift, I had a shopping trip to TMS for the bits to swap the bike from T to SS spec, as always spent more than anticipated, 18/47 sprockets, oil seal, felt washer, tab washer, front brake cable, return spring and fittings to go in cam arms,front mudguard rubbers rim tape and some balance weights if needed. I quite like popping into TMS, I have been using them since 1983 ish, if there isnt a queue I usually end up chatting with Martin.

I will be fetching it off in the morning and it can have a coat of satin black instead.

Chris..


In the past I've a habit of creating a wrinkle paintjob out of normal paint. But I got some schooling as to what not to do, and what should been done. Still, this job was with crinklepaint and it has very high/coarse wrinkles. I think more than an original paintjob.
Of course I no longer own a backing plate with original paint for reference...

Up date on the front brake plate. I thought I would fetch the paint off this morning so I decied to slop a bit of thinners on it to soften it up and wipe it off. Result instant crinkle finish, its a bit glossy but it will have to do as I need to get the bike swapped to road spec ready for my track session at the Beezumph Rally.

I didn't realize it had over 2 years since I had last used the B50, but as I needed it for the single cyl rally that my mate runs this weekend, I had to "shunt the shed to get it out and take it for an MoT.
