Dropped the tank and seat on to get a sense of what it will look like.

Bit more done today, airfilter housing in then back out when I realised the rectifier goes in first.
Air filter back in,ignition switch & rear brakelight switch fitted.
Stripped the indicator stalks from the indicators for clean up and repaint.

Damn, I have ordered anything for a few days;stand by Ebay and David Silver.

Hi Bianco , i presume you have seen the film Independence Day ? I guess this is an SS 50 but there is a great similarity.

I think there is one similar in Sons of Anarchy, its a red bike and appears leaning against a wall in their compound, it moves location depending on the series.
At the NMM show yesterday Allen Millyard had taken an SS50 and made it into a 100cc v-twin

This will be a first for me, just ordered a pair of wheel rims and spokes, going to try to rebuild the wheels myself.

Where's that YouTube tutorial?

If I'm teaching you to suck eggs, sorry......if not, do your research, take lots of photos of the spoke pattern before you dismantle the wheel and be prepared to play about with the offset for the rear sprocket. And get/make an axle support for truing it up.

Other than that, P.O.P! :thumb:

It's only following a procedure, just like building an engine or a gearbox :thumb:
Might take a couple of go's to get my head around it though.
