Next on the list was basically refurbing with lots of new bits - brakes, bearings, motor rebuild and paint etc etc.
The exhaust was made by a guy in the states called jon easton(jemco exhaust ltd), his workshop turns out flattrack performance pipes for allsorts of bikes and was a reasonable £300 incl delivery! Only downside was i had to wait four months for it as he is very busy.
It makes an awesome deep growling sound and was the look i was after.
The tank came from an old cg125, the seat was home made out of fiberglass as was the piece behind it.
The headlight came from trail tech u.s. as did the speedo unit which has very handy oil temp guage facility.
I painted everything myself in my shed and hey presto! 6 months later it lives:sunny:
Goes like stink handles ok and brakes well too due to the weight loss.
