KK thanx for the welcome [ and others ].
I’m certain that with the specialised knowledge hereabouts that I will be able to get my Flat Tracker project finished early next year.
I will certainly need help with the wiring – the loom on the bike was scrap !
I keep looking at the frame and swing arm – and wonder if I wouldn’t be better off starting with a frame in reasonable condition – Mine has quite bad surface rust, and of course the chopped frame rails have to be replaced.However, that’s a relatively small point as a good shotblasting will no doubt sort that out !
In reality the only major outlay left is the stainless high level exhaust and the welding up of the Weber intake – I have pretty well most of the other parts needed.
BTW – due to the particularly violent shade of Yellow I intend to use, I’m naming the bike “Not so Mellow Yellow”. It follows on from my Porsche 356 California Speedster [ replica ] of the same name.
