Cheers,
Had thoughts about using a fuel sight tube, but now Im liking the clean look. Most probably going to run 2 fuel taps as it will need a crossover tube anyway. In hindsight I should have chased down the larger guzzi tank as this one when finished wont hold a great deal of fuel.
The Xt style header and mid pipe from Go with the flow came on Thursday but I have decided to stick with the CRF header. I Will have the exhaust all finished and mounted in the correct place by the end of the week.

Pulled the engine out of the frame on Christmas Eve and spent some spare time over the holidays degreasing, waterblasting and sand blasting it.
Put a coat of paint on the barrel and block.

Drilled some speed holes in the sprocket cover along with polishing it with the clutchand staor covers.

Still working on the frame hoop before sending it all off for powdercoating.

Cheers, the rocker cover is a colour called "metallic beige" I used the same colour on the swingarm of a Monkey bike I built a few years ago. It should tie in with the two tanks I'm going to run on the bike. The new custom tank being a Dark brown with a hint of orange metal flake with cream coloured side panel and the stock tank a dark metallic blue with a cream stripe.

Side covers came plain from Omega racer, Thailand, I drilled the holes big one being the new location for the key barrel. They are nice a thick and good quality. Marcus is also great to deal with. http://www.omegaracer.com/
