    Exhaust

    Picked up the re-chromed exhaust system yesterday. Well happy with the job done and to think it cost me a quarter of the price given by the only other company that I found who would actually undertake the work
    So I suppose a good example of keep shopping around and persevere

    Engine sneek preview

    I'm so excited couldn't resist putting a sneak preview of the engine. It's nearly ready picking up next week. Complete strip and rebuild with new rings and a full clean bill of health. I'll post some more next week

    That looks superb. Good luck with the rest of the build, mate. I think you're going to have a rather splendid motorcycle at the end of it

    Engine

    Picked up the Engine which I am very pleased with. I now have almost everything done, just waiting to get my wheels back, so a little holiday now with the wife and then on my return the rebuild will start. Engine in the frame and then build around that. Quite looking forward to it and fingers crossed we wont come across to many problems. Hopefully I will MOT it in April and ride on those beautiful Summer days now and again to put it back where it belongs. On the road

    That looks great. Kawasaki would have done it like that if they thought we'd pay the price. Looks like you're headed for a better-than-factory finish, not too difficult though if I remember rightly.

    Rebuid Begins

    Well after a sunny break back in the garage and pottering. Engine is back in the frame which went well. Did it the easy way and laid the engine on its side and placed the frame over it. Fitted a couple of the mounting bolts and up on the bench she went to finish the job.
    So I will now just potter away and hopefully she will be a rolling chassis in no time. That's once I get my wheels back from the sprayer who lets just say is beginning to pee me off slightly.

    PLEASE VACUUM those inlet and exhaust ports out and stuff them with rolled up kitchen roll or clean rags or tape them off with moisture resistant masking tape. ASAP

    Its SOOOOOO easy to get dust / dirt / grit in there, Every engine I build is closed up once the heads are fitted and the ports are not opened until I am fitting the exhaust or carbs


    Good Luck the Build it looks great

    Pardon the OCD of the open ports but I was unlucky once with an engine build and a small stone which scored the bore it will never happen again
    Oh Great and Wise Deity, Grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change,

    Courage to change the things I can! And the wisdom to know the difference!

    Well not done much with the restoration of late but hoping that is going to change over the winter with time on my hands

    But finally picked the wheels up today so other than a few nuts and bolts currently being zinc plated it's all back in the garage and ready to be put together So hopefully will be all sorted and ready to MOT by the spring
