My crank is ready to collect, so its engine week next week.... Front end is ready to go back together and the chroming is due back a week on monday. Plenty of pics to come!

Does anyone know where I can get the chrome trim that goes around fixing point for the tank, don't want the strips just the centre part?

Yes Minety my thoughts to :shock: :shock: what you see on the outside will be the same on the inside big enough pieces to block oil galleries <209 I'm not being critical of your expertise but just be careful less is best :thumb you don't need much if the cases are faced with find wet dry sand paper. Otherwise looking great :thumb

Thanks Chris, it's really quite odd how it grabs the throat. I've looked at that bike magazine article for the last 25 years and dreamed of owning the bike. This for sure is damn near the closest I'll get to it!!

Thank Barry, it's really coming along now and I almost have everything in house to finish her up. For the goo-gate conspiracy gents will be happy to know the inner case had to come off due to a foul condition with the cam drive gear tab washer, now fixed and refitted.

Just managed to get a tail light after much searching, just need to get it to the platers...

Nor me pal... No based on previous experience a little baffling is beneficial for low end torque, but I have one of terry Weedys down pipes and waiting for my silencer can to come from him then I'll design a baffle to sit deep in so it'll look open.

Can't wait!!

More garage time this evening, did a swap with my old man for top yoke as in my heathen teenage years I naffed a couple of the bar clamp threads, of course which I will never live down.

So I kindly donated my perfect original yoke for his highly polished knackered thread version on which I'll rectify my 11 year old mistake. That's this evening planned out, I've placed my order for swing arm rebuild bits and my front sprocket so I can continue with the rest of the build.

Also ordered my wiring components last night to complete my new harness.

Does look very lovely indeed Joe, I was wondering what you were going to do about putting BSA badges on a Triumph, but of course it's CCM.
Careful with those fork stations, they are genuine BSA MX.
Whilst I am on the subject, as you all know, pattern stations are a few thou to thin, so I sent mine back to Kideminster motorcycles who claimed they never heard of such a thing, but kindly replaced them with new ones after I suggested they get Harris to give them a few more thou of hard chrome, so, if buying stations anyone, tell them the thickness you demand.

Absolutely Pete, it's going together nicely now. Few niggles here and there but nothing to write home about.

Waiting on the tail light to come back from the chromers. And the rear shock covers to turn up.

1.361" is the original o/d dimension for the stanchions, me and a friend sent ours away to a well known hard chrome fork specialist which took 3 attempts for them to get right. I took this path as the pattern stanchions I found were well down on the o/d and oversize on the I/d meaning the damper valve 'o' ring was not in proper contact, the joy of pattern parts eh?

Not All.
There are undersize ones in circulation, however 1.361" ones are available if you want them.
