Finished the last bits and pieces.

Made new brackets and fitted the new Tailpiece MK3 with the light strip sunk into the tail. Looks much better I think. I also used rubber well nuts and allen bolts for a better looking and stronger fit.

Fitted the replacement Side Stand. Or as DJewen called it the Suicide stand. What a mad idea a stand that springs back up and is impossible to put down while sitting on the bike. I find if you get off, put it down with your boot you can lower the bike onto it. Never seen one like this before though  :dunno.   

Finally Calibrated the speedo. I took the bike out with a GPS program on my mobile phone and it was within 2 MPH. GPS show 40 Speedo said 38 No changes required.  The cheapo Chinese speedo works great. The indicator lights are clear and bright and its accurate. I can say first impressions are that it was a bargain at £21.00 Sterling. I will update on its long term reliability.

A few more photos. Since I finished I painted the exhaust and the Radiator grill black and fitted new tyres. I split the use between the BMW and my Triumph and I am loving it. She continues to run like a dream with no Issues. Itís a great bike 😀.

Hey People. Just thought I would share the cost of my Build. Being Anal I kept a spread sheet.

That's a skunk face cluster and theres already a Skunk head inside the helmet. Or is that a helmet inside the skunk head.
