You'd do well to recoup your money on it i'd say. How much was the respray?

Still, looks nice fella

I do really well on the paint. :xmas-wink: £30! And it does look as good up close.

Nearly there. There's still a bit to do so still thrown together but I get excited about what it'll look like.

Excuse me :) I cross posted being lazy from Pistonheads the car forum.

I meant like you would see under a race cars bonnet. Generally all the fittings for hoses are braided with anodised red and blue snap lock fittings made by companies like Earl's or Aeroquip.

I'm a diehard petrolhead so I love the idea of a bike that takes those styling cues.

HTH

As an update I would have had this finished by now but the chain tensioner I bought form Germany was awful.

Just waiting on a conventional chain tensioner and set the chainline.

All the other jobs are done. I'd like to get it sold before Christmas but it's a little late now.
