Allright guys
A little progress for the weekend..

Got the parts back from powder, same Black as the rims  :devil:
Fitted nice blink in the rear on the custom plate holder and a rizoma license plate light. Works great!

Things i need to adress :

A bracket to hold the speed sensor for the magnet ( fits snugly in the bolt, see image)
Last wiring cleaned up and make the speedo show rpm from the correct wiring with the ignition.
Paint the bike ( not sure what iam going for)
Upolstry the seat pan
New fuel lines and filters
And some other Bits and pieces.

Should be about it   

Enjoy

So, only wiring left now is :
Which wire i connect the yellow wire from the moto gadget
speedo to the  Powerdynamo ignition coil ( to get the rpm showing on the speedo)

- fabricate a bracket for my speedo sensor, so it can detect the magnet i fitted in the head of a Allen bolt on the front wheel

Also need to adress the fuelling : currently have oem petcock and normal size fuel line. Might have to upgrade ( TM 34 mm flat slides)

And then decide on paint job

The weather is holding me back riding / testning it at the moment.
Mounted some pipes that came along with the frame 5 years ago
Not sure what bike they Come from? Rd350?

Sound is Very muted now, should be good to get it licensed
Hopefully soon

With the restricted parts supply, the aircooled RDs can certainly suck up anything in your wallet
