What a tool ..................bag!

Didn't get too much done this weekend, however, I managed to get all of the metalwork prepared for welding and pressure testing of the gas tank. Once done, prep and painting can begin.

Mounting of the ignition switch was also performed, with just enough clearance available between it and the tool bag that had arrived during the week.

Unfortunately I wasn't quite delivered what I'd ordered, with the tool bag having much more of a red/brown finish, rather than the tan coloured version that was expected. With the supplier Royal Spares being all the way in India, I just couldn't be bothered trying to fight it, and decided it might not be too bad after all. It kind of matches the copper milk urn and outside edges of the seat.

As you can see, it was an opportunity to mock up the gas tank, hard tail, milk urn, tool bag and seat. The seat is definitely well too far forward, and will likely be another 70mm further back. This will get determined when I'm mocking up the rear fender position.

  2. I think it looks good man! doesn't look out of place of off at all. Keep it going, I can't wait to see it complete!
