Thanks, I thought the stand bracket would be expensive.

Let me know where you would like the measurements taken from

I think I’ll get a seat first and maybe a tank, my tank has the wrong filler cap it’s a twist fit probably from its police days. I presume the correct tank has a flip cap? Unless anyone knows better?
I’ll contact you later, thanks for you help so far.

Hi again, hope the build is going ok. I am now going down the standard bike route, I noticed you welded on lugs for the passenger foot pegs, could you tell me the position of these? I don’t want to put them in the wrong place.
Thanks
Nick.

It’s not so critical but from the top of the exhaust hanger to the bottom is 270mm I can take pics if you want

Thanks mate, that’s all I needed. I didn’t want to put them too low so they hit the exhaust pipe when folded down.
Thanks again

Sorry to keep on to you mate but I need more advice, I’m about to put the side stand bracket on but I’m not sure how critical the angle is, any ideas?
Thanks
Nick :biggrin

Ill be honest with you I had to take @ gamble on the angle of the side stand after studying others bike pictures. Just hoping I got it right as the bike if far from finished so it will be a longtime until I can be sure. Hopefully some one may be able to advise
