    Other than a Santa Ride this weekend, mine will be washed and put away in preparation for my hip replacement!

    Please keep me up to date with all your comings and goings over the winter - I will be jealous as hell.

    I want a bit more get up and go from the engine department. I'm going to fit a big bore kit with ported and polished heads, Gear driven cams and all the malarky involved in fitting them. I've just about got all the things I need start.

    i wish i had never fucking started this project, powder coated stuff came back, i asked them to bung all threaded bits, did they shite, so had to tap out all threads.
    then its been freezing where we live there are no brick garages so my timber one gets every bit of draft
    more updates and photos to follow when i thaw out

    Re: What have you done / or doing to your bike this winter.

    I had some mag wheels powdercoated once Bob and like you they never bunged off the threads for the discs or the surfaces the discs sat agin! It took me ages to sort out using some industrial acid (no longer available) and tap set - i then used a garden furniture powdercoating company in Peterborough who were so good i carried on using them for years with no problems. Rule of thumb is however long you think its gonna take, double it.................and then add in the fuck up factor

    Just had my parts delivered yesterday.......some 8wks after telling me it would be just 10 days .

    Turns out they lost a part and eventually found it in another customer order

    Opened the box to find a very nice factory like finish, but then noticed some scollops in the end can I specifically agreed with them to have masked off are now ceramic coated instead of bare Aluminium

    In summary, the finish is very good and looks like a factory finish, but the service is nothing short of shocking.

    I would use them again as the finish is good, but would ensure all agreements are in triplicate so they can't possibly screw it up a second time.

    Hope my learnings help others.

    Nothing yet. Still trying to source a black front cylinder head. Might look at removing the heat shields and putting a black wrap on.
