ONE STEP AHEAD,TWO STEPS BEHIND.......



was lookin to make the tank bracket today, and it's a disaster . when the tank is like i want, my motormounts are out of the game, conflict with the tank, must find another way to . then i'm not far to have another conflict between the tank and the yoke... not so simple.

front wheel finished and installed, stance is good (for me) . now i can measure the lenght needed for the tubes, in fact + 8 in. , that will give a ground clerance of 13 cm, similar than the Beezer, enough

SATURDAY CRAP



picked a Brembo caliper on ebay, certainly efficient but too "racing look" for me with the yellow anodisation . the plan was to remove that and polishing the caliper, simple in the paper, but the four allen screws was tightened very hard, look the allen keys, even the Facom is twisted, tried all the solutions, warming, etc... at the end, the good old chisel did it right . at last i've just had  time to do half of the job, second part soon .
