What an awesome build thread, thanks for taking the time to share it.

Can't wait to see it in the flesh next month.

Thanks Coffeesnobs, not long now! Love seeing those H2's get thrashed too!

It was about this time last year when I was prepping and painting the frame, but even so I'm in a much better position ... all the running and rotating bits have been in and down the salt, so I'm confident it'll all go back together as it should (been spending a chunk of time refining the jackshaft/clutch setup ... should be more reliable).

Here she is, standing tall ...


Not a huge amount different than last year, a few extra fairing support bits at the front and back, a loop to stop me (and the missus) sliding off the seat, and another loop at the back that will hold my second powerplant ... yes, thats right, powerplant number two.

As I'm running in "Fuel" this year, the V8 is going to be drinking something a little more exotic, but the other one ... thats something else entirely.

Four and a half weeks to go and we'll be on our way; looking forward to seeing you all there.

Pointed towards the hevens Rus, is that an indication off the next powerplant to be used ? :D
