time to say goodbye to the pigeon and also get an x7 done at the same time, painters got 3 in front of me so patience is key now, with Dave out of action it’s going to be a long couple of months waiting, but as the weathers turning it’s time to get the others ridden.
Very slight update, it’s now alive. Going to collect on Friday so hopefully bang a video up. Looking like 77rwbhp and 48lbsft torque. All the power coming in low with the triple low port barrels, max rpm 8200. Think that should be lively through the gears. Engine run in and a few tweaks and 80bhp should be achievable. Given the budget and it being different, I’m extremely happy with those numbers. It will still be on 1 side for the moment as building a new burgervan for the mrs, I’ll kick the paintman up the arse and maybe bang a day a week in on it!

Had a couple of hours today making 2 bad sets of clocks into 1 good set. Zero’d genuine uk speedo, new faces and needles. They won’t be staying together as they aren’t staying black. Thanks to Dave Mac for the clocks.
It’s meant to be as bling as he could make it, I told him go overboard if you can. Need to get the decals made now. It’s been on the bench waiting for too long. I’ve done all the jobs her indoors wanted doing so now it’s my time to get this done.
Was on holiday when video came through, checked again and he’s painted the wrong front mudguard, luckily as the rear still needs painting all is not lost for him, shame he’s got to paint the one he’s done another colour though.
