Front brake caliper bracket

The time has come! One of the hardest things (if not the hardest!) to do with my project.The most dificult is dimensioning. I did lots of measurements and prepared wooden caliper bracket. See picture :)
Then I had prepared CAD technical drawing (I shrunk it a little to reduce the weight and made better shape) and sent it to my mate Patrick so that he can cut the bracket with plasma cutter.
He is a genius!!! He did his job perfectly!

So far so good! Patrick drilled the holes and tap them. Bracket will be ready soon.
Thank you Pat!!!!!

Leaking fuel tap

After start the engine I have noticed dripping fuel directly onto the starter case :) Dangerous a little bit :)
Fuel tap leaked - so I had to fix it. I bought fuel tap repairing kit on ebay for less than 11 quid. It took 20 min. and I have brand new set of seals installed :)

Luckily I pouerd only 3 litres of fuel so there was no problem to drain it out.

So far, so good :)

Lots of work left but as I said in the title - so far so good!!!
Bike on the wheels already! It works! Started first time! It was amazing!!!!

I have cleanded carburetors last year and make some kind of teaching film (HD quality video). Then I have copied all files from camcorder to hard drive. Unfortunately my HDD stopped working :( All data lost :( Not only carburetors video. My private holiday videos, pictures... I'm pissed off....

What is done:
wheels fitted
fuel tank fitted
radiator has been cleaned and painted. All hose clips are new
new air filter fitted - all parts removed and cleaned (pipes, air filter case etc.)
Because of different fuel tank I had to modiffied oil pipes location. All pipes and hoses are new.
cleaned carburetors. All pipes changed.

In the next posts I'll show you guys how everything was made :)

Still to do:
front brake caliper bracket
Repleace front brake piston seals
repleace fuel tap seals
make fuel tank panels and side panels
fit front headlight and indicators
mount speedo (don't know what kind of speedo yet)
mount a chain
