    Didn't see that coming - will watch with interest to see how you tie that together with the matt black and chrome.

    Look at the risers in previous post. Fittings are purple also.

    You should see them in person. I've shown people at work photos of wheels and risers, and they kinda hummed and hahed and basically said "Hmm that's different".

    But then I brought the risers and the sprocket hub from the middle of the wheel and it became "Wow that looks really nice!!"

    If anyone wants to put in some time wrenching, either for the experience to notch on their belt or because they are nice (or want beer) let me know. I'm expecting to have chrome back this week.

    Keen to get the damn thing finished and off the lift.

    Beer provided. I reckon I work better once in the golden zone of sauced. Just enough for time to fly, not enough to be sloppy.

    Got some of the chrome back.




    As you can see, there is a fair bit missing. The chromer has had several goes, but there still is some parts not chroming well. I got to look at the bits that weren't any good, and they come out pitted in some areas. It is odd though, because as you can see there is one hand lever and one foot lever, but the identical ones from the other side are getting sporadic pitting.

    Chromer says normally if it was an issue with their gear, the entire piece would become pitted. The parts that are pitting are only doing it in a few spots here and there. There also seems to be no correspondence between older parts or new ones chromed better - the switch blocks were brand new, but things like that left foot and hand lever weren't! Also, no correspondence between wether polished and prepped cast parts chromed better than polished and prepped billet parts!

    Does anyone know how to get the switch out of the left hand clutch lever mount? It's the switch used to cut off the engine if it's in gear and you haven't pulled the lever in.

    About the only bit of chrome I can assemble at the moment. Had to run taps through the threads, and file some of it. And fiddle with the switch as it got a bit cooked in the chroming process. Here's hoping that it works proper.
