Your bike is working with the beer? in Tuscany, I have tried the Chianti. :lol: :lol:

Grappa is much better! :shock:

You're doing a good job, you already started the engine block?

Good luck, Carlo Leoncini.

Man, this one slipped past me somehow! It would be neat to see some more photos, and some of the progress. It does look neat with those symetrical pipes! MikeV

Hi Boucher,
When I look at the front sub-frame picture of your very impressive project, I can't help but be reminded of the time years ago when I was on a ride on my '77 900ss. The main tube of it's similar front sub-frame abruptly broke in two, I'm sure from much accumulated up and down vibration stresses. Something like that gets your immediate attention and is hard to forget. When I got it repaired, we added a reinforcing rib, and I sandwiched a little rubber in the steering head mount. I've also got some rubber damping on my current '80 900ss sub-frame, and it gets checked for signs of stress cracks every so often, as I've learned mine wasn't the only one that broke. I can only imagine how much time and effort you have put into your bike, and I hope you are not offended by my passing this along.

Bill, you mean like this? There will be a vertical mount[45 degrees] , to just above headlight that will also act as a mount for instruments.[lightweight digital].I'll consider your rubber idea. Thanks for input. Boucher.

I see the welding fairy has visited your shop again, she obviously likes hanging out there. Who wouldn't? I love progress photos of interesting projects like yours. I study them pretty close, and now I'm a little worried about your drive chain master link, but I'll try and not be too critical until I see further photos.

Yes, I am taking a great deal of interest in this project, it is most intriguing, with some lovely touches, and "interesting" parts.

However I am most intrigued by the writing inside the right hand megaphone, what does it say ?....Pat.
