Thanks Paul, Yup was black, Yup racing it this weekend!
Busy spraying bodywork and sorting the motor.
Will probably just be plain white with my roadie tank in the stock patina'd original paint.
Won't have time to decal it, time is short.

Anyway, back to the garage I go!

Bead blasted aluminium, the plan was to polish it. Just don't have the time before the weekend.
This will be a "trial" build. Will strip and polish soon, have to, if you just look at it with greasy hands it gets dirty  :-\.

You are one determined SOB!

Thanks, I think.........  ;D
I have been meaning to get the track bike sorted for months, this weekend just created a reason with a deadline.
Probably would have only pulled finger when it warmed up in a couple of months if this hadn't come up.

Buttoned up the motor last night, will hang it in the frame tonight, clean carbs and connect everything.
Everything is on track, fairings sprayed white (unpolished), brakes done, brackets made, tyres fitted.

Had a tough time with the wiring harness, some PO really butchered it so the only possible problems will be wiring related.

Cant wait, getting excited now!!!!!!

Motor in the frame, all auxiliaries fitted and attached.
I was really worried about the butchered loom but happy to say that I connected a battery and the PV servo did its cleaning cycle !!  :)
Forgot to check for spark but I am using the coils and motor from my road bike so sure it wont be a problem.
Also, when removing the key ignition all that needs to be done is the plug in the plastic wiring connector holder next to the thermostat needs to be bridged.

Need to pick up some exhaust springs today and I will fire her up tonight.
Still have a problem with sprockets, any advise on removing the front sprocket, mine is welded onto the shaft with 20yrs worth of crud, grease and grime, couldn't get the nut to budge.

Had the same issue (2 guys and a long breaker bar, the nut just laughed at us) and eventually had to take it to a bike shop so they could rattle it off with a pneumatic impact driver. Even then I could hear him struggle to get it off!

Impact gun is the way. Thanks to china booming there nice and cheap. Got me first one a few months ago and have used it a lot and saved on stripped nuts and knuckle skin.

Off to Wayne's (Zoomzoom) dyno later this morning to dial in some jetting.
Std clocks still on, didn't have time to make brackets, next time!
