i've installed the stock tank, but i find it too big, a smaller will probably be better, engine is much covered

SPARK PLUG ACCESSORIES

i've machined few spares for a friend, 2 set of plug caps, in brass, and a copy of the "rescue" sparks holder for old Harley, mine is not casting, it's machined in a big bit of alloy, half with milling machine, half with the grinder

FOLLOWING STEP

few progress on the front mudguard mount, grinder step, for a long time......
i've re used the existing holes , but as they weren't properly balanced, i must cheat and all the little arms are differents

SLOWLY BUT .........

front mudguard now, as you can see, there's nothing nowhere in the fork leg cause it's a 500 XT YAMAHA fork , mudguard is installed underneath of the bottom yoke .
must create a kinda brace, probably in stainless . then a lot of small bars to join the mudguard, this one is already drilled, but not at the right place, i'll must cheat

WE ARE HERE

i've welded the rear stay, now i'll adjust the muguard inside, probably 5 mm to the top.

swapped the bar with a friend for a lower, much better
