3d printed a tiny tail to take the tail lights and frame the highback of the seat. 

Tried hard to emulate the lines of the tank and pretty happy with the overall look and feel, the 3d print saves a lot of shaping time but still needs replicating in fiberglass... that's...

It might have been a hammer to crack a nut but better that than smashing all the teeth off with a screwdriver!

I've created an ugly tool that does a great job, I'll make these up for anyone who needs to do the same :)

A couple of significant bits are turning up...

I can't strip both engines until my water cut tool arrives. It's a 35 tooth spanner and the chances of it working are less than slim, but it's exciting nonetheless!!!! There's also the backstop for the subframe and the tail...

Having to build a custom tool to release the middle gear, drawn that up and getting it water cut. Once back I'll weld it together add a handle on and hopefully it'll be easy!

Other than that, I've recited a few exciting parts from the guys at cognitomoto so I'll get whe...

Still no joy with opening up the middle gear housing.... 

Anyone with any information will be highly respected!

Turns out mostly handlebars... today felt like the day to get to grips with a custom subframe, except it's Sunday, I've yet to find a steel stockist locally and all I had was the high bars off the XVs and some scraps...

Turns out, that was just enough. 

I know a bad work...

Two things I've learned and both you can bank on if you're planning an xv project; One cylinder will not come off!

Both engines are pretty much stripped and ready for blasting, but it wasn't fun and there's still the middle drive gear to release.. anyone????

It's a nice...

Cafe or bobber... can't decide I think it's going to end up a bobber racer! 

Set the bike up in its existing forks and a new rear shock. Lifted the rear to approximate the axle height of the new rim and dropped the forks through the triple clamp to get the nose down. No...

It's all gone well, nothing scary happening inside. Should get it completely stripped and bearings pulled ready for vapour blasting next week. In fact I'm going to try and strip both. 

There's a bevel drive off the gearbox towards the drive shaft. Haven't worked that ou...

Stud pattern on the machining was fractionally out but I think I managed to salvage it. I'll amend the cad files for future production. The kit feels like it'll work well. Still waiting on the rear wheel parts to refit and road test but anything has to be better than t...
