It is a tough looking beast. It certainly draws the eye.

Flipping the inlet manifold, how obvious. Will you have to alter the flange at the end to stop it pointing downhill? Cant remember if the carb came out straight or kicked up at the end of the manifold.

Yep. It's a tight fit, because the pipe comes down slightly, when I flip it over it raises up so it is very tight but does go... Just misses the back tube. The carb sits straight but because the angle of the head the carb sits at an angle so will need the flange twisting slightly so it sits vertical but I've tried it and it does all go

I found some steel bar the same diameter I need for the crank extension/pulley shaft
Just need to bore it and machine the end to fit as the pickup did:-


And I stripped all the paint off my cases, I got bored of stripper so just threw them in the oven till the paint bubbled off
I'm not one for polishing so might just leave them raw

No, not finnished. Rebuilding engine in new year and get it running, then sort the brakes and a reg out. Once thats done the frame needs powdercoating same colour as the tank, then ill call it done and make a start on the outfit.

Sorry, not been going round the forums lately so only just seen the replies on here
I ended up getting rid that tank. Reason: i wanted the bike more 70s dragstrip/digger
It looked tame with the peanut, i ended up stretching an old garelli tank off a moped.
Hacked it in half snd shoved an extra 9" length in




bought the gasket set to rebuild the engine, but on cracking open i found some surface rust on the barrels. One cylinder looked like it had bedded in.. took it up to roger uppertons, hes gonna hone them and if needs be, drop a new sleeve in the bad one

That tank makes a HUGE difference to the overall look of the bike, love it! Lov e the stance and the clear spaces where you see the angle between frame a fornt, hope you're not going to change too much more on it cos I reckon you've hit it!

Good call on the tank. It was the one thing that I thought looked too sanitised for the rest of the bike. Looks way better now.

Nope, this is it now, i need to seal the tank, im going to do some leafscroll in varigated gold leaf down the sides, pinstripe the top, kinda 70's digger... think Arlen ness gold scrolls.
Get the engine running, fasten it all together, sort the brakes and just ride it. No lights or any other un needed stuff
