hmm, interesting, but the offer on the link ended in april 2011.

I did find dealers that do HEL brakelines, but for a GS 750 they come at 190 (front and back, original routing).
I also found Goodridge brakelines, they are cheaper but has anybody got some experience with those?

Thx,

Big

I did some more work the last few days, but not as much as i wanted too because of the scorching heat....

I got my spare engine almost completely disasembled, as i'm going to repaint the casings as it should, but first some mediablasting.
I also started to work on the frame, my gastank i bought dind't fit the frame very well. I had to cut some brackets off and have to weld them back on other places.
The tank was also a little narrow in the tunnel so i mildly hammered the tunnel to fit the frame. The tank fits perfectly now, and i'm almost ready to make the seat to fit the frame and tank. I'm also cutting off exces brackets on the frame to loose some weight an make the look of the bike "tighter".

I dropped my rims of at the powdercoater to have them powdercoated in deep black, i also asked if they could powdercoat my frame in nice gold... but that seemed to be a problem. They have some gold shades but realy ugly! And they ask about 200 to do it, wich for me is a little pricy as i can paint the frame in the color i want and pay half of that price. OK, paint isn't as solid as powdercoating but it's not going to be a daily driver anyways so i might as well give it a little "showbike" looks Wink

I'll post some pics later of the progress, as my garage is very messy so i have to clean up first Embarassed

i moved some more stuff into my garage without cleaning it up first.... ugh
But i needed my welder to continue the work on the frame and took some other small tools with me, like the tubekit that goes with my carbsynchro-meters, some larger size wrenches, a lot of parts that i had laying around to fix the original head of the bike (valves, valveseals, new timing chain, head gasket, etc...)
And so now my garage is a big mess...
I know what to do next weekend!

it's more like parts all over the place, i don't have much room to stock the parts so they're lying everywhere! Gonna do some nasty cleanup this weekend and put some parts for sale, so i have the room to work and maybe a little more budget also Wink

Well, still haven't cleaned the garage... had a lot of busy weekends Sad

But on the bright side, my rims have returned from powdercoating! They look nice and shiny and came out pretty good considering the state they were in! I'l try to make some pics tomorow, cause it's to dark now.

I finally got to take some pics of the rims today! I still had some pics from last week when i started to modify the frame, enjoy!:
















I still have to make the seat so i can cut the frame at the exact length, but i will get to that later on. First i got to get the feultank fitted with the mountings in the right place.

Nice and shiny! Where did you get the footpegs?
If you are still looking for steel brake lines: I got mine from bikedesign (http://www.bike-design.be/nl) don't remember the price, but it was good quality
Today I've dropped off my engine at Te Winkel Group in Boom for a 'parelstralen' hope it will be nice... you happy with their work?
What paint did you use for the engine?
Keep up the good work!

Cheers Rocker

So i got moving again on the bike!
I started to make a mold for the seat, it's my first time that i'm doing this so it's not going to be easy, pics will follow later.
For now, i got the bearings in for the back wheel so i put them in and started to assemble the wheel.







That's all for now!
