Hi Postman.

Thanks. Bought the mirrors on eBay. Details on the grill, mesh type etc are slightly further back in the thread, specifically post 326 onwards.

Thanks! Made an order of those Revotec pull through ties. Now I have to find net for the protector. I still have original radiator protection and maybe I can use that.

I was looking those aluminium mask nets but they were not stiff enough.

It was some Stainless Steel 5 Mesh I used, if you cut it smart enough the left and right edges tuck into the sides of the radiator, I also bought some rubber edging strip to dress the upper and lower edges. That combined with your pull through ties makes for a tidy job.

Unable to obtain exact replacements for the broken thermistors and unable to find a work around, I removed the working thermistors from the faulty sender and the faulty ones from the working sender then combined the two together - I now have a working fuel light at 4L. This concludes the bike build.

I wept because I had no radials until I met a man who had no splines.

Superb build David! You've hit the big time with Pipeburn. Love the pic of you in motion. Hopefully, you won't put her up for cheap bidding anytime soon.  :clap: :clap: :bmwsmile

Thank you, Sir! Yeah, I’m pretty pleased, once I saw the photos from the shoot I though “these need shared”

Hmmm, not sure I’ll ever let her go now.

You can accumulate like me. That's if the wife permits. One K-bike, 2 airheads, and a Vespa. I just finished this baby.

That’s a cracking shot! I’d love to do an airhead next, or at least just something nice and easy with carbs!
