Mark,

Love the style of the blinkers and tail light - looks like you pinched them from an old chevvy..   2smiley

 They are a custom car indicator set. I tinted the reversing lights to match the indicators. I stuffed them into Honda indicator cases.

 I couldn't find anything for bikes I liked.

Really like the colour Mark, very similar to what I've painted my 500T.

Colour is mercedes anthracite # 172. It's a close match for the VHT cast iron used on the frame.

Aaaaand polished out.

 I've still to fit a petcock and do a few other small things and Fran is working on the seat cover.

But, nearly done.

Is this going to be your daily rider Mark or are you going to sell it?

That looks definitely a one-off bike.

There has been a lot of work gone into that Mark.

Can you show a picture of those radiator surrounds - are they held on by custom brackets (look a bit like headlight brackets).

Cheers

Neither Cephas, I've built a toy. It'll only be registered in summer. It is more practical than it looks though.

Ive already started on the thingummy.

 You can see it in October. :)

He's definitely one off. My intention was that it wouldn't fit any of the popular templates for a custom CX - that's why it's the thingy.

The radiator scoops are bolted straight to the radiator using the original shroud mounting points. I'll get a picture.

While I'm going to go back at some point to fabricate an aluminium airbox tray and battery box to replace the steel items currently fitted and take a little weight out of the fork brace I'm calling this one done.

Very nice Mark, a long time in the making but worth the wait.

Thanks fellers.

A few details I didn't see looking back through the thread.

It really is something to see in person.

I would like a much closer look on Thursday, Mate.

Very nice work Mark, the attention to detail is terrific.
But it's a much more subdued colour than bright orange....you must be getting old.  :grandpa:

Thanks MM. Dragonstaff just helped me to weigh this while he was picking up his goldwing carbs.

 Total weight of 197 kg. with a full fuel tank.

Factory figure is 225 kg.

 I was hoping I could get it sub 200 kg.

 I think I can get rid of a leetle more ....

Picky, picky. Isn't 28 kilos enough? That is more than 10% weight loss.

Seriously, this is a very nice bike. The detail is just ridiculous, and it would take days of studying it to find even half of the little things Mark has done.

And I've just found a few interesting things in the motor.

Mechanical seal in 3 pieces. Stripped impeller spline, broken guide and tensioner rails. Cam hacked off BEHIND the seal - much silicon. Might try a welch plug.

 Oil looks like it's been through a diesel.

The wiring is ...... interesting .....  bodgery rules OK?  :tease:

If the spline is stripped, would another cam be the easier/better option?

The cam is OK {at the back anyway} but the impeller is stripped. I'll have one or two here.
