It took me awhile to learn to order twice as many as I think I'll need due to loosing them across the room.

Plug wires and magneto are finally wired up. I shot some dull coat on the blower and the plumbing lines as they were too shiny to represent rubber.

BTW - I use alot of different colors of wire from the local Orvis store that is intended for tying flies for fyfishing, which is another of my hobbies. There are so many choices in thickness and colors to choose from so if any of you are near an Orvis store, check them out. You can also order online at orvis.com. Other flyfishing specialty stores will have similar stuff as well.

Brad... Looking good buddy. I can't wait to see it in person in a few weeks... I have shot my fair share of bolts across the table and onto the floor. Just the other day I lost two during my pedal build...lol

Same here it got so bad at one time I had the wife crawling around looking for tiny parts that tend to disapear. I think gremlins run out and grab parts when they hit the floor because somethings hit the floor never to be found again. :huh:

OK guys, I've finally pulled this one off the shelf and back on the work bench. I'd forgotten just how fiddly this one is.

Stay tuned...

I've gotten a bit done on this but, sad to say, my camera refuses to focus so its off to the shop for repairs. I'll see if I can't figure out how to get some updated pics posted.
