Yea, I hope to put mine on the road next year but I will need to get my finger out as I have not been in the garage for the last couple of months.

The headlight came from Shire Bikes and is "Zhen Hua 12V Headlight Lens & Rim suitable for use with Monkey Bike, Dax Motorcycles".

Made up a couple of brackets that allow adjustment for beam height and glassed them into the shell.

One day I will post photos!

That will look fine with a little padding.
Talking of jack of all trades, I tried something I havnt done before today, putting in one of those filler strips into a claytonite type windscreen rubber. I Bought the special tool with the little roller on it. Makes it a lot easier. I notice your screen rubber looks like it has one of these filler yet to go in? Or is that the pattern of the profile?

Hi, Steve
As Bob says, the seat needs more padding.  In the small experience I have of this, the foam, at its "resting" size, needs to be quite a bit bigger than the cover into which it goes. Try adding something like a 30-mm-thick sheet of foam, cut to go over the top, and flap down all 4 sides. You'll be surprised at the results.

I got it on ebay here it is http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/111189270956?_trksid=p2059210.m2749.l2648&ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT
as you push the diamond shaped wire part through the groove the roller presses the filler into the groove as it opens it up. Its very difficult to fit such a filler strip without the tool. Dont buy one though. Borrow mine.

I put it down to all those Carry on films he watched over the holidays. Its a shame he has lowered the tone.
