Started cutting the frame I'm wanting the seat to look like its attached to the tank so I have tiged wee tags on to the frame to bolt the rose joint to and gota fill in the holes where the original frame was welded.

Got the engine back in before I go off to sea, I managed to press the old stems outa gsxr and bandit yokes the diameter of the bandit on it a ball hair smaller than t he gsxr so I'm getting a local engineering firm to handle that while I'm away so hopefully I can get it on when I get home doubt I will be getting it on the road this year, found a k6 wheel on ebay no sure what like it is until I'm home thou.

Managed to get this tail section looking a bit better i used car body filler no sur if it will crack and fall apart so if any one has any idea I'd participate a heads up before I get to painting it. I was also thinking along the lines of making a mould and redoing the thing so that it fits and is once piece rather than what I have here, kinda wishing I hadn't of bought this from ebay its taken me more time than any other part of the bike and I still have to figure out how to make an under tray for it. I'm goin to use stainless I have in the shed and polish it up but want it looking clean so might have to attach it to the sub frame or something, any help with that appreciated too.

This has fuck all to do with my build! But what the fucks going on with the streetfighter mag? it was hard enough to get where I live in Scotland after checking heaps of shops and getting no real answer I seen bsh mag with a pull out of streetfighters in it!:panzer:. If you ask me this is total shite why aint the streetfighter mag got a pull out of bsh and why has this happened? Bsh is crap I know they bum it up a wee bit in streetfighters but I have been getting this mag since I was a bairn and ripping about on crossers and ain't interested all that shit in bsh mag. But my main question is,if any one knows the answer is there going to be a feature of streetfighters in bsh every month or what?
