We had a slight change in plans over the past few weeks. I initially we were going to use a set of magnesium Brembo calipers from the mid 80s, but we have been unable to source new seals. Unfortunately we discovered this after all the mounting hardware was made. I located a new set of Brembo calipers which are now mounted. The brackets are actually a bit simpler, all that's left is a bit of polishing.

Latest progress. Note the crankcase is a spare R90s. The engine we will use is still with me in Texas ready for rebuild when I get up to dads next month.

I ordered tires this week so soon it will be easier to roll around.

We've made good progress in the last few weeks. I brought the vapor blasted cases up to my dad's so we could build up the engine and get it into the frame along with the transmission.

We temporarily put the carbs and tank on for fit checks, all looks good. We have a set of 38mm stainless headers that fit good too.

We evaluated the full fairing we have that was still in the mold...its pretty rough and will need a lot of work. The very first of the bikes actually had a small half fairing similar to a Norton or Ducati so we are thinking of going in that direction. Plus the engine is looking so nice it seems a shame to cover it up.
