I didn't realize it's been that long. Now I'm concerned too. I hope you're ok, Trevor

I have been in touch with Trevor today, I received a note from him, and the lastest picture of the bike.

I hope to post it tonight.

I don't know the ins & outs, but he has/is having problems getting on site. Maybe someone running this site can look into this issue?

Trevor is fine,

BOOM BABY I"M BACK!

I'm not sure what was going on but I was unable to log on for quite a while.
But never mind it seems to be fixed for the moment
I've finished off those pesky footplates and started on the rear wheel.
The speedo drive sprocket has been made and I'm working on the drum brake at the moment.

The drive for the speedo was a pain 88 teeth cut into 3mm MDF.
Tear out was a real problem but I got around it by running super glue on the edge of the MDF.

Anyway good to be back, I'll spend the next few hours catching up on all the great work I've
missed on the forum

Cheers

I was going to say not to much until I had a look.
Since I last posted the tank tap and fuel has been added.
Along with the handlebar grips and the brake lever.
The front wheel hub has been modified as well so that I can make the brake look larger (It's currently not on the bike)
The speedo drive is done and I'm working on the back brake at the moment.

Wow Rep! That looks great! Good call on the superglue. I don't know if I'd thought of that. That's why you get the big bucks, huh? Lol.

Please forgive me, Rep. I was asked about two weeks ago to post a picture for you and I just now remembered and come to post it. Please know that my lack of posting it was not an intentional withholding. It's a pleasant sight to see that your access is back again.

That is looking fantastic!

Not a problem Steve I'm just glad to be able to log on again.
I just this minute finished taking a couple of shoots of the rear drum brake.
I think it's going to come up nicely with a bit of detailing.

I'll leave it as is for the minute and get started on the mounting for the drive sprocket.

The coke can gives a good idea of scale.
The bike is 5 foot 5 inch's long and 2 foot 9 inch's to the top of the headlight.
The Indians at the stage where I can strip it down and start painting.
It will be great to see some colour on it.

Cheers

First of all I want everyone to understand I do this with the upmost respect for every one mentioned.
Smithbrother and Mort you are both right and you are both WRONG. Please remember Rep is from Austrialia, the spelling of certain words is different than in the USA. Rep speaks and writes according to the 'Kings English'. Therefore Rep did NOT misspell Colour or the word Tyre.
Just like the word Austrialia, I noticed that Google Chrome tells me I have misspelled it. However when I looked it up in the dictionary it is spelled with two 'i's' . The other way of spelling it is 'Australia'.
Another word is 'program'. Here in the USA that is spelled correct. In the British Isles it is spelled 'programme'
A wise man once said, "Depending on what part of the country you are standing in, depends on how you pronounce it." I think that also applies to spelling. One thing is for sure, you both recognized each word for it's correct meaning!
That's my two cents worth, spend it wisely! ! !

In every old broken down body lives a young person wondering what the hell happened!

DerlC, Yep, I knew that, that's why I added the (hehe) at the end. Trevor and I are good friends, we joke back and forth all the time, even in private messages.

No offense taken though.

"G'day gents" he say's using his best gramma.
I think as you say everyone is right so long as we all know what the other is talking about!

Having said that!
I'd love to see the dictionary that spells Australia with two i's.
Fairdinkum mate get a new one that ones faulty.
As not to offend the current Monarch Her Majesty.
That would be the Queen's English where talking about.

Also one doesn't spelled, that would be spelt.
And it wouldn't be done correct, but more correctly.

All of this is tongue in check and who caress.
But what I'm wondering is when did you guy's stop using the Oxford Dictionary.
I mean we both started out as back waters of the British Empire!
At some point in time the Untied States had to of started to write it's own.
I'm just curious as to when that was?
Any idea's.

Cheers

I thought it was about time to start adding some colour.
The main part I've been working on is the battery box.

I've given the battery box a coat of clear, I'll let it harden then sand it down and give it another couple of coats.

I'll just keep painting and detail parts as I go.
You never know I may get this bike finished one day.
