Finally managed to get her up and running today, and away she has gone to get the exhaust all finished off.

Not far away now, only need to finish off the wiring and then off for a paint job.

Anyone know anyone who can make custom side panels?

Here a quick vid for you....

Gutted for you bro! She was really coming along too.

You could probably make a bit more cash if you broke the bike (I know you wouldn't want to, just a word of advice).

The running lights aren't to my taste mate, but it's a 10 second job to remove them I bet.

Cheers homebrew 8o

Yeah your probably right buddy, I may break if need be.

Running lights are a 10 second job to remove, so yeah everything can be removed easily come to think about it.

Hi i am new in this site have been told about it from a friend of mine. I have just started my project hornet, i saw your swing arm mod and i have been thinking about making something like that. did you bend a cross section or did you manufacture everything from sheet. would really apreciate some help. I will be posting my updates soon since i am having problems uploading pictures the site is telling me unable to resolve dimensions.
