Real progress today, she’s starting to resemble something that might become a motorbike
First shot is of the headstock put on; you can see how shiny the one the ignition came off is; it’s still got it’s original Zadi plastic tag on it…
And here we’ve got a shot from the back… Mudguard, suspension all assembled. Just needs electronics, seat, lights and and air filter.
And from the front. Attaching the engine again is just four bolts; the big problem is the front forks – which I can’t get off the donor bike. I’ve been beating hell out of them – and getting less than no-where. Even with Onne’s help, I still couldn’t get the damn fork nuts to shift at all. Impact driver, 2lb lump hammer directed against a t-bar… still won’t come apart. Bloody things. I will have to get the wiring out the way and apply heat. Grr.
