Bit of an update on my build-
I just finished changing over the swing arm and welding in brackets for the rear master cylinder so I can run rear discs. The seat is almost ready to send off to be covered I just need to tidy up a couple of things.
I have been experimenting with rattle can paint on the tank trying to figure out what colour I want to go, everything else is going to be black so I thought a white tank might be a nice contrast.  will probably go through a few tins before I settle on a colour. The standard cap is going to be removed and replaced with a flush pop up cap. Hopefully I will get my hands on a front wheel and new forks soon then I will send both wheels and the frame off to be powder coated. It's been a slow project but things are finally starting to take shape and I'm pretty happy with the way its turning out.

Looking good. Did you get the spares bike running?

Thanks! The seat is getting upholstered Monday and the frame will be back from powder coating in a couple of weeks.

I'm in two minds as to whether I'm going to keep the spares bike or sell it. The 76's are selling for ridiculous prices on eBay at the moment so I'm thinking if someone wants to pay that much I might get rid of it. Otherwise it will be my next project.
