That particular beer brand has a place close to my heart, it is called Norrlands Guld as a celebration to the neglected and generally despised part of Sweden that in weather reports is referred to as Norrland and consists of the upper half of the country.

In the TV commercials we are pictured as something best described as canadian loggers with their tounges cut out, the main attempt of vocal communication being the sound from quickly inhaling air through an almost closed mouth around your front teeths. We use as a sign of aprovement so we don´t actually have to say something. smiley

Neil: Yup. ( or should I say schuuu) grin

After a day with unusually cranky kids it was pure pleasure to spend a couple of hours in the workshop with Motörhead on full volume. smiley



My first job was to fit the fairings but I ran into trouble when I realised that the brake line I ordered for the front wheel was so short that the brake lever hit the fairings when turning, to avoid cutting away more of the fairings I decided to get a new and slightly longer brake line made.


 
With the fairings finally in place I could make a couple of mounts for the T2 and P4 gauges, I am glad that I won´t have to fit much else in there because it is pretty filled up now. smiley



Since there was no way I could fit the tachometer so the Gopro camera mounted between the handlebars would see it I fixed it in place on top of the air box where at least I can see it myself. Later I will figure out a way to use a similar dashboard gauge like for the T2 so I can fit it right beside the rest of the gauges.



Cheers!

Thanks Scottie, it sure has come a long way since I began the project five years ago.  smiley

Hopefully I won´t have to fit much more stuff to the dashboard. grin

Ha ha, I hope it won´t come to that... smiley

My friend Olov toasted his leg when we burned a hole in the jet kick afterburner, another friend very cleverly named the damage "Jet Leg".  grin

To avoid suffering the same fate as Olov I had to make a proper heat shield around the freepower housing.



There is a distinct smell from cutting plastic coated stainless sheet with an angle grinder so I got a bit nostalgic thinking about the pulsejet building days. smiley



Making a couple of sturdy fixing points for the heat shield.



I might have to dull the heat shield a bit to avoid blinding the speaker at Speed Weekend. rolleyes



I have also managed to get a longer brake hose made so now the grip won´t touch the fairings when I steer the bike.



Cheers!

Your levers will need 1/2-inch or larger balls on their ends to run at the Salt Flats...................Its a safety thing........no hole-punch devices are allowed to protect the rider in the case of a 'tumble' on the course. Some riders prefer the short levers for increased fairing clearance.

The plan was to buy a pair of those stubby china grips but I forgot all about it, thanks for reminding me.

Will the round end of those get me through tech inspection?

Anders, is your front fender mounted to pre-existing tabs on the sliders or did you make something up? I'm not wild about using only clamps to mount my fender and it's not an area I want to weld on.

I´ll take some pictures of how I did it after the holidays when I get back home.
