I was surprised how much attention it got up against some pretty radical customs, really amazing few months with my little 550

So far it has been very interesting. Some problems that linger from the 550's stint as my winter hack remain. The wiring needs work, nothing to do with the build, it was issue we saw on the build day. Also I am still have problems with fuel and carbs. Again a carryover problem. So need to sort those out over winter. Might fit new clutch plates too.

As riding experience the bike is utterly transformed from mild mannered Clark Kent into Superman...it feels so much more fun to ride. It also gets loads of attention, which I am happy about. I have become so much more precious about, so much so that I now need a new general hack! I was looking at a CBX750 on ebay tonight!

More jobs for the winter include improving the seat location so it is easier to get on and off, and I nned a better mounting for the rear brake reservoir too.

But from a conversation over a cuppa at work the whole experience has been amazing...the four hour build, the Youtube TV programme, my first bike show...

We need to get our bikes together and get Spazk to take some pics!

That would be awesome, she is currently still editing the shoot we did. I think it will only have a couple of images but they should be amazing! :-)
