A couple of more shots detailing further work. Upholstery has been done. Cost me a small fortune, but the guy made the base with plywood and chamfered the horizontal and vertical piece and created a curve. He used, foam, but also Gelastic, which is a sort of honeycomb Gel and doesn't get hot in the sun like Gel. vinyl stapled to the wood, finished pad velcro's to the fibreglass seat. Over all a very nice job.

The rear brake linkage gave Rob a bit of a headache, because the original bike had a comstar wheel with a disc (obviously hydraulic) and so a linkage was needed for the older hub brake. This has a unique, but professional look to it I think.

What can I say about the finished exhaust. There is a small baffle in there, but it is going to sound loud and a little bit aggressive.

Head lamp shell from Norbsa looks old school and indicators look nice and minimal.

I really like that you chose for an handlebar instead of clipons, as an handlebar has more chrome to it and its a bit more comfy to ride.

Ok after a holiday and a few day's checking the bike over, it is on the road. I have done about 400 miles and apart from the need for some Carb balancing it is running like a dream. I have taken it to the Ace Cafe - Cafe racer day and to the Cassington Bike night - This is a once year event and happens on a Monday evening. 28th June this year. It is a big event here and although it is only a small village seems to attract thousands of bikers every year. There are lot's of old British classics on show, this is the reason it started in the first place and has become a bit of a pilgrimage. I am lucky enough to live 10 miles from there and about 55 from the Ace Cafe. Here are a few pictures of the bike out and about starting with a before picture.

This Bike was built by Rob Keable of Keable Engineering Moby 07920520071 or 01604 820522 - email rob1keable@virgin.net his web site is www.keableengineering.co.uk

He is a fine engineer and a fine chap. Well done Rob

Hi guy's feel free to vote for my bike, this has got through to the top top 10 of the street modified category of Britain's got biking talent. I only entered it for a laugh, but the Motor Cycle News encourage one to ask ask for votes. There are other stunning bikes to look at anyhow. You'll love the classic category.
