of course the horn worked. I checked it before I shipped it. Its coming along nicely.
I have the swing arm and cradle put together.
The head steady spring would normally be fitted the other way around.
I was considering that, but decided that the amount I’ll be riding this I’m ok. It’s a budget build and if I’m going to add any sort of modern technology, my first upgrade will be a Dave Taylor headsteady.
Thanks so much. I’m not planning any long rides on this bike. I’m building it for the love of the design and to take shorts runs.Just looking at that brings back memories. At 35 after 100 miles on the old XLCR with similar set up I couldn't walk for 1/2 hr. and feared I'd piss blood kidneys hurt so bad.... Can only try not to imagine what that position could do now at 67..... Looks good though on style though. Anyway I'm getting envious looking at your makings. Keep up the good work and make me green.
