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 @370steve has kindly recommended to me.

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

Credit to DB Customs for the above image

I think it's just the lighting settings on his camera, when I last saw them just painted in white it was a white but in the images it looks more of a cream colour. Only time will tell next weekend when I pick them up.

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


The headlight and the 50mm headlight bracket adapters came.
I'm liking the little led ring on here.


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


I'm undecided what I should go for on the rear cowl.
Cusomfighters, skullyknucks, both or nothing

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.
