Really coming along nicely!  Can't wait to see it all finished up and complete.  You are definitely spending more time building your bike than I did on mine, and it shows.
I know stuff.  Or something.

Thanks, I too am really looking forward to the first ride. The front mudguard still waits at the previous owner for me to pick it up - but I have to do it with the otherwise finished bike, that's the condition.

Yesterday I ordered the mufflers and some small parts from HMC, and as I decided to use the old exhaust pipes, started working on these.

One hat a massve ding, right in the bottom bend as well as a crack.














The other one had a bad kink, right where the footrest is:






I got them out mostly, the remaining dings will have to be taken care of at the plating shop.
So long,
Andreas

Yesterdy I was able to pick up the chrome plated parts for the Chief:



Turned out gorgeous and 150€ seems quite reasonable!
I adjusted the exhaust pipes an Friday (I got the mufflers from HMC and so that came quite handy) and left them right there. Now I wait for the estimate.
Gruß,
Andreas

Nothing much has happened, but I started on the rear footrest mounts:




Still needs deburring and tapping as well as turning the end conic. But first I need a 3/8"-, or 7/16"-BSC tap.
So long,
Andreas
