I can't wait to see this little belter! The colour choice is inspired- I'm all in favour of original flat colours! What wheel/tyre combo you gonna run? Arches? Brakes? This one's got me salivating, it should be an animal. If you need any help- even if it's just another pair of hands to hold a spanner- you know where to come....

the pic attached is the gsxr750 inlet rubbers (s/h off ebay) so i can mount the TB's on to the weber manifold. i went to my local bike shop to ask about these inlet rubbers - £160 for 4inc clips and vat

i've left the upper bulkhead unprepped as i'm not sure how much room i've got for the bike Tb's on the weber manifold. once i know the clearance, all the unecessary bulkhead holes will be welded up and smoothed to an external finish.

today the other new front wheel bearing arrived so finished off the front hub build so get it back on its wheels - new bearings . ball joints, vented discs and allspeed CV's.
couldn't resist bolting up the fat rims and taping on the sportspack arches as my final thought :'( :'( :'( :'(
you can see that there will be a bit of arch trimming needed!

The offer of help (especially if you need anything strenuous doing post op') is still there- just shout. I'd quite like a scar on the right hand side to match the one I have on the left anyway!
Bit of a difficult one to answer this I know, but when are you aiming for completion?
All the best.

next big job (hehe) will be getting the block in and doing ancillary fitment. just bought an Omex 100 ecu and loom s/h , so hopefully will be able to get it rough running at least on a base map.
a tricky job soon will be modifying the mini pedal box to take a vauxhall clutch cable and an under-dash master cylinder (Tb's will sit where the mini master cylinder usually is). i could buy one from allspeed or the 16v shop but are a bit pricey
