There's a US electrical hook up thing one one side which Ive now decided is part of the buses history so will leave alone, on the other side are holes where an awning fitting has been removed. Im in the long RHR queue to try and get an awning fitting back on (we have the awning, its the same as the one on the maroon split that was in the split club field at Stanford)

If anyone has awning fittings for sale Im in the market

the awning fixings are on the roof and they are both present, the holes in the back are from where the gas tank for the cooker etc was fitted...

I guess I'll need those holes filxing then. However there should be lower fittings at the front and back of the bus on one side, which aren't there....we saw them on the maroon split at Stanford.....it had precisely the same awning, same colour stripes !

these new holes aren't for some kind of gay tali-light set-up

I've had a set of "temignoini" end-cans from a Ducati 916 put aside for a while now. So yesterday it was time to "disassmble" them Smile

......Now you can guess why I cut the ovals out of the engine lid Wink

(well, I was always gonna struggle with bottoming out most of the shelf exhauts, so this might solve the issue)

I spent the rest of the day and a half measuring, cutting, bending & tacking bits of exhaust tubing.
Tim then finished off the welding of all the parts of the new jigsaw I gave him!!

it's probably a lot easier playing twister (& more fun, depending on who you play with !)....anyhow, here's the final header looking ok with a bit of paint on.

well, after the first time of running the engine resulted in a total siezure after about 4 seconds, the motor is now back after having the casing magnesium welded, re-machined and with a new balanced crank & lightened flywheel.

let's hope it runs a bit longer this time :shock:

bloke who biult it reckons the guy who grinds his cranks cocked it up.
Still, he fixed it for free & dropped it back to my house so we'll see how it fayres this time.

the scooter under the cover is a custom lammy jet 200 (now stage 5 225)


the other white & red one is an indian GP 150 (now 175)
here's the "before" pic
