Fridays mail saw the delivery of a set of Dunlop K81 TT100's. Possibly not the best tyre for the rear as the contact patch won't be huge, but they were the easiest H rated tyres I could find.

Tuesdays post saw the arrival of new K/start and gear lever rubbers and a pair of header pipes.
Image
(The corkscrew is a much earlier purchase)
Bit worried about the labels on the pipes though

I'm going to look for a pair of megaphones which will hopefully quieten it down enough to meet federal noise standards :D

I was wondering the same thing. Noise = Good :D

My goal is to make peoples ears bleed.

One more present this week
Image
New SS rim and spoke set for the rear wheel. Only problem with this is they sent a 19" rim and 18" spoke set so I shall have to sort that out.
Just need some time now to start assembling it all.
