Trumpet - tracker now is no longer "bloody thing"

I have orderd some parts for my Trumpet. 
I took a lovely visit to see Steve at Red Max during re week. He has resently moved premises to Dunkerswell , which is almost in my neck of the woods. 
He let me try a selection of tanks for size but this Trackmaster was the 1st and instantly looked right. 
Ice orderd one. 
The bike looks so much more in proportion with some cloths on. 

Then today I got on a mission to make my exhausts. 
It went very well. 
The silencers need baffles and reverse cone hobbies and a bit more welding but all the lugs are on and whatnot . 
I was so happy I took mrs Oily to the pub and let her buy me 2pints of beer.

Bloody Trumpet-tracker

Since the last blog I have been flat out lining up the motor with the gearbox with the rearwheel. What a fecker of a job. 
Weld on lugs , realise they are in the wrong place , cut them off then reedoo them. 
Then I realised I had made a massive error of putting the bottom of the frame in the way of the chain run. 
Bloody cocking fucksticks.

So I bought a small sprocket , found some bearings that would fit and made a little doobery to lift the chain clear. 

Plus I went to hang out with a clued up geezer that helped me set my cams up. 
Engine is built now . One job less. 

This is Brads bike. 
A lot more ready than mine. 
Exhaust was made buy Geoff at Co-built. 
Bloody top welder and very nice bloke.
