This weekend has been a bit up & down. I started Saturday off a little fed up as the more I looked at stuff the more I saw was crap! Both sets of forks are fubared, a lot of the parts are in poor condition, & I was starting to think 'what the hell have I bought!!'
Best have a cuppa & get on with it then!!
Firstly mounted the mini speedo I picked up from the 'bay of fools' for less than a tenner! although I'm going move it to the center which means relocating the ignition switch.
(Yes that bloody awful headlamp will be going!)
Mr Angle-Grinder & I had an afternoon appointment & we whooped the front mudguard into rough shape, starting to feel much better now!
Today (Sunday) I set about sorting how to hide the electrics & mounting the battery. The CDI unit, fuses, & little regulator will all sit on a plate under the seat,
The main regulator is going to be mounted on the frame backbone, under the tank, There is a big gap & it should get plenty of airflow.
The starter solenoid & indicator relay will be mounted on the top engine mounting plates.
I mocked up the battery support out of some copper pipe, to get the rough shape & position that I want & fabbed up a bracket to mount the battery strap.
