A bit more progress, made a new oil cooler bracket, painted the fairing and started applying the graphics, rear wheel is at the powder coaters hence the crap picture in the garage, got to get it looking presentable as I’ve been asked to display it as a work in progress on the VJMC stand at the NEC classic car and bike show next week, there’s going to be a few late nights.

Just dragged the Harris out in between rain showers for a quick pic...... Had a bit of a rush to get it ready for the NEC this weekend as we have to set up on Thursday, pleased with how it's turning out so far, the fairing may need a re-paint over the winter as I'm not 100% happy with it but that's what you get working with old fibreglass, overall I'm chuffed with the progress.

I think Phil the previous owner made them. They look like a cable tie with a short piece of clear pipe between.

I had them done at my local sign makers, only charged a few quid.

All set up at the NEC. At least I can get a few other jobs done for the Harris while it's not here, like the front mudguard (should hopefully arrive today and then just needs paint), plus I can have a think about how I'm going to sort the belly pan for it which will be aluminium, also there's the side stand to get sorted.
The list goes on........and on........and on lol :)

Hey cakeman, I am also in Staffordshire.
Great looking bike.
I look forward to maybe seeing (and hearing!!!) that beast some time.
Cheers
