It has been a while since my last update.

Here is instalment 4 of my project. In it I take a brief look at the Cosworth SCA engine for inspiration.

Very slow progress recently on the build, mainly due to moving house.

The garage currently looks like this...

...so turning it into a usable workshop is going to be a project in itself.

I did manage to take the bike out to a local Vintage Motorcycle Club day at a nearby stately home earlier in the summer though.

I have finally got round to making some progress. I have managed to sort the garage out and turn it into a usable workshop.

Another update on the workshop project. I have always wanted a lathe and this is the first time I have had enough space to squeeze one in!

A lathe is so useful I don't know how I would do without one.  Your Velo is looking great.

That lathe is great.  It is nice to see you back on the forum.

Thanks Koncretekid and wobblywalrus.

I seem to be short on space, time and money. But I am expecting the lathe to be worth its weight in gold when it comes to usefulness. Up until now I have had to try and rush small jobs on a lathe at work in my lunch break, so any job longer than 30 minutes wasn't possible.

I hope everybody is keeping well during these very strange times.

Being on lockdown has allowed me to start thinking about the engine in my MAC.
