Land of plenty

Someone I never spoke to, in person or on the phone,I  never saw, never emailed, sent me FREE OF CHARGE these Harris foot pegs because mine where blue and ugly.

It took me a while but they're in.

Thank you once again, Chris!

Finished exhaust

Number board and a trip to Brighton

Went down today to the South Coast and drove past this place between Eastbourne and Newhaven called Beachy Head. Every 500mts you have a "Pay and Display"car park. I wonder if the cattle gets to graze for free...

Today's work

I came up with this idea for a headlight some months ago. I thought to myself, "this will look really nice and so far I've never seen it on a bike". Well I've started today fabricating the bracket that will hold the headlight and I managed to finish it.  I used left over bits from the exhaust system I'm making, including a piece of pipe, two inches of the original exhaust mount to the frame an angle grinder and a tig inverter.
Somehow the enemy managed to get hold of my blueprints for this highly engineered setup for the front light and here it is.

I was quite pissed off because they even chose the same side where I wanted to mount the headlight BUT they had the decency of using an oval number board. This prevents any chances of me suing the offenders, leaving me as the guy who copied the Wrenchmonkees...

Back on to it

Replaced the stock TRX forks with these Thundercat ones keeping the TRX wheel. Straight fit, just 2 spacers needed to be adjusted for the wheel.

Fabrication started on the downpipes.
