Things'd have to be serious before I disturbed anyone's sleep. Get studying those eyelids!

Ref. the alternator - nope, it was all perfectly clear after I read your posts. Cheers.

Bike now modified to travel everywhere by railway line, per the miniscule steering lock as is traditional with cafe racers/clip-ons/Avon fairings.

Love the photo Chris - looking very cool indeed but I miss the "Make Life A Ride" mug strategically positioned in many of your early photos of this build.  We are getting closer to your first ride report and I'm really looking forward to see what you feel about the many design decisions you have made along the way.

"Many design decisions"

C'mon, that makes it sound as though this thing was thought out. You've seen the sticky tape and stuff!

The bike is really only about cutting and shutting the frame to match the missing 78mm that was taken out of the '100 engine to make the '75. The rest of the girly cafe racer/poncey silver frame is just copybook show-off stuff!

Cheers though, and yes it should be ridden soon.

Edit:never noticed the logo on the mug! it's just what my mate brings me coffee in. I'll try and track it down.

Well after a near enough five month hiatus (time seems to fly in the latter part of your sixth decade, or maybe I'm just not paying attention to stuff anymore) things have started rolling again. Loom and paint is all that's left to do. Here's the loom, slowly growing like knotweed over the bike:

And here's one of the reasons for the hiatus:

Cute little Hiatus, You planning on using a K1100 tank by the look of those frame tops? That's 1994 onwards dual top tube formula.

Well I'm chuffed that Larry-the-Hiatus showed an instant interest in getting hold of my hand tools. In order of preference: hand axe, cordless screwdriver, hammer. I've had to ban the wood chisels; even I have limits. In the pic he's cleaning the outside of the house, with the car-washing brush...

Top frame - yep, ihe thing was made from two K1100 frames, because of the steeper rake/head angle that the K1100s have over the K100/K75. Probably make no difference to the finished item whatsoever  Shocked

Suddenly got guiding light again with this one, can't wait to prod that starter button.

Bearing in mind this is/was just about a wreck of an engine, bought for fifty quid from under some guy's bench where it had done nothing for years. Strip down indicated a lot of previous poor workmanship, worn cam, mad valve clearances, and a seized/wrongly assembled big end, topped off with an asthmatic oil pick-up. I rebuilt it within my abilities/financial indifference, and fitted it with a nonsense intake system and a straight through exhaust, plus a make-it-up-as-you-listen-to-the-radio wiring loom and a motley gathering of injectors, ECUs etc etc

...dare I video the attempted start up/explosion/fire?

Personally, I need some stimulation these days since all the local watering holes are shuttered.  A few explosions and a lot of smoke would go a long way toward satisfying that need.

Yep we wanna see if it goes Zip when it moved and Bop when it stops and Whirr when it stands still. We'll never know if you don't dare and press that starter button.
