    No. the bike is being built to junkyard formula for the most part. Those bars were on the bike when I got it I've just flipped them over. I did try a few other similar sets the same way but none worked as well.

    You need this type of bend {obviously} for this to work but you are after the lowest rise for the least drop when flipped .... unless you are an orangutan as the reach starts to get a bit far.

    I need to get some better pictures of the tail unit. This is made from the rear of another 500C tank and part of a rear guard from a CM250.

    The rear hump is held on at the front by 2 6 mm bolts through the spreader and a third at the back that also forms part of the mount for the modified fender liner. The liner had to have its front lengthened {twice. I cut it twice and it was still too short } This had to be cut off before the rear mount that rises to the original seat mount as I didn't need that protrusion in the way. Half of the boss for the CDI plugs was in the way and had to be cut out and the resultant hole filled. Ditto the guide for the tail light wiring on the left side.

    Is it just me Phreak, but does the cowl seem a bit high in relation to the tank?

    It is a little lower than that now. The photo isn't particularly current. Since that photo was taken I've lowered it maybe an inch - the most possible.

    It looks better when the back is not jacked up on the centrestand too.

    So am I. I make these things up as I go along.

    Keen to try to avoid any trends with this one. That's why it's the thingy.

    I put the back end of this back together yesterday so there'd be less bits floating around the shed while I go through the motor, which was then pulled out. I took a couple of pics of where the rear is at at present.

    I knew the motor was dirty but it took me all afternoon today to get it clean enough for the teardown, which will be next weekend unless I get a chance to get to it sooner.

    This motor, though it had been robbed of a head appears to have expired from a blown stator. The 5/9 is out of spec with low resistance and the 8/9 is open circuit. That's OK, I have a G8 stator for it along with Raesan hall effects. It will be running both hall and stock pulsers. {switchable from one to the other.} I have the usual quad bypass parts for it along with rings and a selection of engine bearings {thanks VC3}. Also complete seals, O rings and gaskets and an oilpump chain.

    I have a NOS 'A' rocker and 2 Bs. I know where there is another A and will buy this if it is still available when I scrape the funds together. I have new rocker pins. I have a new camshaft, front support and tach worm but need to find out if this is 415 or MA1. If MA1 it goes into this motor. If 415 it goes into the Ozdeluxe motor.

    I'm hoping the basic motor is as good as it seems to be.

    I couldn't resist anymore so I've just been out and put the motor on the engine bench. Then the engine hanger fell off followed by the front cover.

    I can't see anything much I don't like in the way of sparklies or anything other than the expected trashed oilpump chain {I don't think the front cover has been off before but the quality silicon job tells me the back has} and evidence of many late or missed oil changes. This thing is as filthy inside as it was on the outside.

    Will finish ripping it to bits tomorrow.

    Oh, and Ramp, Mrs. Phreak and I have been together for 35 years.

    Have ordered the last 'A' rocker I needed for this one and it's just been posted from the US. I won't mention that it's cost me nearly as much as the other 3 rockers did ... but at least I have a full set for this bike now.
