Hi guys :)

Just a little update on this one :)

With the back end in place ,I was then able to put the exhausts together ....All six of them ;D ,These are finished in a satin/matt Black apart from the connecting collets which are alloy .

These then go up both sides of the bike .....

Looks good from the back ;D

There is a breather tube to add to the crankcase at this point too ,this comes as clear tube in the kit ,but to give it a used look I dipped it in AK Interactives 'Fuel Stain ' .

And fitted .....

Next up will be the Handlebars /forks & front wheel assembly :)

Thanks for looking.

Chris.

Thank you very much Luigi ,apologies for my late reply my friend :)

Hi chaps :)

Hope y'all had a good Christmas ?

Ok ,moving on another bit here . The Top yolk ,clipon Bars ,levers etc need done next ,so all the needed parts were picked out in the appropriate colours ,apart from the grips which are molded in soft rubber .

This lot of parts are then assembled onto the headstock of the frame ........

At the same time I painted up all the parts for the Forks ,Front guard ,brakes etc and assembled them along with the front wheel ....

The front assembly was only temporarily fitted as it needs removed to get the fairing on later ...

The rev counter was fitted next leaving just the cables to add (again this is done later on )

Nearly there now :)

Thanks for looking .
