What, that I've had the bike since 2009 and still not finished it or that the previous owner was nutter? :lol:

Update. No progress obviously but still no plans to sell. In fact I'm planning to pick up some more parts in the coming weeks. Still need rads, a race seat unit without a hole for the riders seat in it, new clip ons, engine case protectors, 520 chain and sprocket kit. Sending calipers off for servicing/refurb soon!

According to something I've read on Insta Scott Jelleyman is the man to speak to about rads, is he a member on here?

Chances of sourcing a NC35 rear wheel for sub £500?

The tank is original and on the surface looks to be in good nick (has been in damp garage for 12 years though). Anyone gone down the route of using a dummy tank with an aluminium tank underneath like the students from Swansea uni did on their race bike?

Might have some rads spare - came with a bike. Scott is on here if you do want to get them via him. Most of us now have used the 'Chinese' rads (I have had mine for over 10 years.)

Tanks wise - you're looking for our member variablevalvessucks - I am fairly sure he has the bits, and deffo the skills to complete that kind of work He is a busy man though - rook composites is his company.

NC35 wheel - fuck knows :) they are mad money - and if I was going to have to spend £500 on a 25yr old wheel...I would probably want to get onto a new one from somewhere for a few quid more. If you wanted to pay £500 for one...I'll sell you mine :mrgreen:
