seat





seat,mounted,petrol tank finished,foot controlls finished etc etc just 1 pipe to add ,a bit of welding and stuff and i will start it up,then its getting stripped for paint and plating of bits etc ,I'm dreading doing the engine polishing,it will take me ages,by hand

sideways 8

Next NSU  i'm doing involves turning two NSU motors sideways ,linking them together and using a xs1100 middle drive gearbox and a bsa gearbox making a square8? might supercharge it also ,i'm thinking of something along the lines of a 60 s sprint style machine,better get another Q plate out of my buiscuit tin marked ILLEGAL SHIT       :)

very cheap tr1 build


Started a tr1 chop today ,bent the frame loop up and welded it together,next the loop will go on my frame jig to add the headstock and hard tail,i want to build this as a everyday ride able chop (john lyndleys fault)i have a inlet manifold ready to add a big SU carb  to it some old cheap wire wheels ,a sprung saddle etc i recon i can have this bike finished for under 200 quid ,watch this space!,the NSU  blowerbike is my main priority to finish and this is for riding after the winter,because I'm sick of zxr900 ninja gayness this tr1 will look black and scabby and old like myself
