Managed some more progress after work on Friday. Lots of cutting of metal and grinding as well as fighting the wiring loom and removing all the insulation tape from the main loom before cutting out the indicator wiring and the flasher relay. There's still quite a lot of work to do with the loom at some wires will need to be extended and some shortened, then there's the clutch in to start element to be removed, and now the clocks are gone all the associated wiring for the idiot lights can be gotten rid of as well.

Oh, an I chopped the rear subframe off to :0), no turning back now. I was going to use a good chunk of the original subframe and just extend the diagonal lower subframe tubes up to meet the original seat frame tubes with the bits I didn't need chopped off, but after some discussions with Kris at the unit I agree that it might look neater to just make a new subframe seat rail up with a nice hoop out of one fresh piece of tube. So I'll see him this week and get that ordered, in the mean time there's a good bit of cleaning up to do on the frame and a load of measuring to work out sizes for the new subframe. Not to mention continuing to beat the crap out of the under side of the tank to make it sit low enough and finish moving the petrol tap position.

Now much cleaner


Before the chop, tank roughly in place.
As it stands now post chop
