Now it's got wheels
I just mocked it up to get the wheel/ chain/ sprocket/ engine all lined up. Bit of a fecker and I maneged to burn my hand on a freely welded bit of frame. 
I'm now sat with a beer , an ice block and a fucking sore hand. 
I think I can line everything up and it should work. 
The frame looks long but it is the correct wheel base , same as the Trackmaster BSA , WOODS NORTON,and my YZF . 
I'm now looking for a cool tank maybe a Trackmaster style jobby but one with an extremely deep tunnel as the frame is tall. But at least I can remouve the head without taking the motor out.

Kung foo

I used to do a bit of Kung Foo , my Sensay told me that Kung Foo translates to " Hard Work" 
My eye balls hurt and I'm full of swarf. But hopefully soon there will be a bike on the track to show for all the hard work.

More fuckin around with the Trumpet Tracker

Ive been beavering away at the Trumpet-Tracker frame. 
Fuck me it's hard work. 
I had problems bending the tubes for the frame so I went and hung around with Vonzeti ( they make tanks seats and seat units for cafe racers . They are brilliant folk and make ace stuff so google them then buy stuff. ) 

Bert ,chief Vonzeti and Neek I hope that's spelt right ( it's Dutch I think) did all the bending whilst I stood with my hands in my pockets feeling like a spare part. 
Any way all tubes bent and sorted. 
So last night , insted of getting pissed I welded on the seat support then spent a Lot of today threading cutting and drilling and welding the bottom support that doubles as a oil drain bolt and filter for the oil in frame. ( don't wory it will be tucked out of harms way) . 
Way more work than I originally thought , as it always is. 

Also got some 3134 fast cams for the motor.

Don't look like a Picasso ( well I think it looks better) but first part of the TRUMPET -TRACKER frame is together . 
Stainless spine has a headstock and swingarm pivot welded in place and also has a foookin great oil filler cap ontop. 
Just need to bend and weld the rest of the tubes in . 
Skateboard wheels have made very usefull headstock centreing thingemybobs but they stink a bit when they start to melt.
Me top friend Paul let me use his lathe to turn my bearing seats and swingarm melarkies . All it cost was a bottle of rum and a very enjoyable day in his very tidy workshop. ( when I say tidy I meen TIDEY, like only a place I can visit. If it were mine it would be a shit pit within the hour. Infact the Minuit I walk in it suddenly looks messy , I'm sure it will take him months to get it back to the state it was in befor I arrived. Take more than a bottle of Rum to sort my workshop out) . 
In fact , if any one is up for a chalange I'll pay you 2 bottles of rum to sort my workshop out.
