    Wow, 5 years goes fast! Soooo, quick update. Wife left me for fucktard, got depressed as shit, found newer better woman, massive shit fight with ex over son and property, Dad died, got depressed as shit, married newer better woman, had kid, disowned half my family over Dad's death, had another kid, not much bike anything over that entire time. So here we are, finally got bike out of new inlaw's shed and we're off to see Lynton to kick start the build again. Never mind all the warhammer shit, decided to go a different direction. Lynton is sorting out putting the swing arm in for me and I'll be off and running again YAY!!

    All photo's on this thread are now fixed. Fucking Photofuckit! Going back over this thread has been interesting, lot's of mistakes to rectify in my haste and lack of knowledge. Dog ate the shit out of my wiring so have to play with the dreaded multi-coloured spaghetti, need to relocate the battery because the top of the 'busa swinger fouls the battery box, had to get a new seat unit because I cut the original WAY to short. Oh the benefits of hindsight.

    So, more progress from the magician that is Lynton.

    AND FINALLY LOOKING SEXY AS FUCK ON HER OWN TWO WHEELS!!! Only 5-6 years in the making.



    You may also notice the Gilles Rearsets sitting pretty too. Now to get off my arse and do the bits I need to do.

    Quick vids of the swingarm pivot and linkage being trimmed to fit the Bandit frame.

    Yes, yes, and more yes! It's so good to see a build happening on this forum again after so long. Reminds me of the old days....
