'At the mo' - yeah right, give it a couple of weeks and we'll be reading your post on how to fit a Range Rover Sport Brembo brake to a Vfr swingarm! Ha Ha

Seem to have had no time to move this on recently and seriously considering breaking the bike for parts and giving up.

Just taking up room in the shed at the mo.

Hi mate, feeling`s about your fighter will ebb between love and hate, if you don`t need to sell it for the dough then put it at the back of the garage, come the summer you `ll love the idea of it again, all the best tony

Cheers lads. Just need to give myself a shake I think Laughing

Don't know if having a load of bits can be classed as nearly there but at least I've got the bits.

Need to make some time and get out and in the shed with the heater on and get back to it. Also need to stop procrastinating overf order the tailpiece from Fight Machines.

Bloody hell, managed to get my finger out and actually made it in to the shed cheers

Started stripping out the wiring loom. Coolant drained and radiator off, it's for the bin by the look of it. Something else to add to my want list.

Downpipes also off and also for the scrap heap, one bonus was that all the studs came out the engine ok, nice clean threads. Unlike the nuts which are seized on Laughing

The plan is to get a custom one made in stainless Tony, with the outlet coming out just past the swingarm pivot. So that the wheel doesn't have anything in front of it.

Cheers for the pics Tony but after a bit of umming and ahing I've decided to go with the Fight Machine tail as I prefer the way it sits.

Had originally wanted a tail that I could get a pack on but sod practicality Laughing

Actually managed a bit of time in the shed today. Carbs off and engine out (note to self, get a hand putting it back in). Loom out, front end off so just about ready to get the frame up to the powder coater.

Don't think I'll be needing these bits Laughing

(note to self, get a hand putting it back in) i know about that one, if you are having to fit it on your own as you have the front end off put the engine in place and lower the frame over it and bolt it in then use the abba stand to lift it then put the forks on thats how i have done it in the past,what colour you doing the frame?

It had crossed my mind about refitting it like that Scotty, sounds like the way to go now you've said that it works.

Satin black for the frame is my thought and the same for the swingarm and yolks (once I get someone to make me a set lol)

Decision made. Bike's getting broken for parts.

Don't seem to have the time to spend on it that I'd like, so cutting my losses before they increase.

I know that feeling mate, mines getting shoved into the back of the garage. Just seems to be a money pit, I'm looking at getting myself a standard blade and just riding the bloody thing.
