That's a great looking bike!

Hopefully, it will be as fast as it looks, and you'll go home a happy man! :cheers:

Very nice build. I had to loose a few pounds last year to fit into borrowed leathers.....best to save the beer until after the ride.

Dyno-tested it last week. First time out (only ridden it 200 yards) and FLAT OUT! I was parping my pants! I had a problem with the gearchange (now fixed) but we got some pretty good figures out of it. It's going back on the dyno tomorrow so I can fine-tune the ignition, but I'll be taking it a bit easier. If all goes well that should see it completely finished, apart from a few blank rear sprockets I need to machine to fit.
I don't know if the other British chaps mentioned it, but we have a new addition to our team, a BBC TV film crew are following us & making a 2-hour documentary. They filmed me on the dyno & nearly jumped out of thier skins when I opened it up.
Don't push me, I'm close to the edge.

Yep looks great and has the perfect stance for a salt ride, plated frame just make a race bike look correct too.

Everyone thinks the frame's plated, but it's a powder coat finish called "Chromex", & comprises about 5 seperate layers, & you have to be inches away to see it's not plated. Brilliant finish!
