A little more test fitting today. Still waiting for the last couple of items to arrive before I start the actual build.

No major updates as I’m waiting for a few bits to arrive before I can properly start the build.

I’ve got the bike stripped back ready to build up, but have been test fitting the cockpit to see if it looks right...personally I’m loving the raw titanium and black parts.

Image

Got the barends all finished now and a got some of the finer details added/sorted. Will fit the Porcipaw grips at the weekend using the original hairspray method from back in the day and will add the Onza bar end plugs.

Loved those bar ends when I had a pair... almost iconic.

I’d only had the cro-mo versions prior to these...wow these look amazing in the flesh. This set needed a bit of restoration, but they’re looking awesome now and really seem to suite the build.

A bit more progress today, but still waiting for some key parts to arrive in order to actually be able to finish the build.

Onza Porcipaw grips fitted using the retro hairspray method

The cockpit is pretty much all finished and will be finer tuned once all the parts are fitted and it’s up and running

Also got a few more black titanium bolts fitted
