progress!!

Wow!Progress is good.The dummy engine and gearbox in the frame have been replaced with the 5 speed gear box and rebuilt crankcase.The rear sets and gear shift have been fabricated and i must say the gearshift is silky smooth.

I am still working on the upper end of the engine,that should be complete in a week or two.

I will start working on fabricating the fuel tank soon.

Ol'Murphy has'nt paid us a visit as yet...?
