Cheers Buck, I actually found a picture on the internet of the exhaust and tried to copy that and judging by the comments I did an ok job.

Thanks for looking in

So today I did some more painting and this evening I tried to sort this horribly fiddly chain out. spent about 2 hours trying to replace the pins which fell out and gluing some brass pieces to it..

So here are the pics

Chain, much straighter now but still lots to do with it, once complete i need to somehow cut it so it can be threaded through the hole in the swing arm, not sure how im gonna do that yet, thought about using a hacksaw but thats a barbaric approach and could do more harm than good.



seat assembly with 1/2 the exhaust fitted to it, once fitted it exits through the rear cowl so you wont see the heat staining very much, but I was on a roll with the other piece so seemed a shame to leave it just painted in one colour



Front fork assembly, detailed and awaiting the final pieces to finish it off, the top yolk is completed, just need to finish the grips.



swing arm, dechromed and repainted with Alclad polished aluminium.



Before I can do anymore assembly the chain needs to be completed, so for now im stuck, will try and sort it out tomorrow.

Thanks for looking and any C&C greatly appreciated

Thanks guys..

Andy it's a pain in the ...... After paying £10 for it I want to use it so it's a case of making it work no matter how much you wanna dig a hole in the garden and bury it!

I managed to sort the chain out and did some more on the beast,

The chain, though it doesnt look like the sprocket fits properly it did once I had finished but I didnt take another pic.



Now onto the interesting stuff













and finally here's a little mock up with a couple of fairing pieces fitted, just to see what it would look like



Thanks for looking

Excellent work! Top marks on the decals and paint of engine heat stain. I've seen Y.T.s on PE parts. Even separating them from the "trees" can result in launching tiny bits into oblivion. Congrats on a difficult project that will look great when finished. A shame it costs so much extra for better detailing.
