Dux, to strip and straighten the frame was about 2 hours, will be about another two to finish off the right hand side upright on the subframe,, I will only be back from the Cape in the 31st  so might have it going by the time i start work on the 8th

so the first one is up and running, did all the carb needle and air box mod's also put the scorch pipe on from the second bike,,, eish it's way too noisy, I would like the power to run a bit higher and further up the rev range so I see a high comp piston and a cam in the near future, I will also be putting some decent suspension on,
