A beautiful build and great attention to detail too ! Great idea with the hose clamps. Seeing these bike builds has got me thinking about finishing mine now, I will be following along with you on this and hope to pick up some more tips

   The Honda is on two wheels at last...hoorah. The kit is so well designed Its almost falling together the only deviations are putting the clear hoses on the hydraulic reservoirs (an idea stolen from a YouTube video ...it looked pretty cool when they did it) and replacing the standard Tamiya brake hoses rubber strips from the inside of a bungee cord. I prefer them as they flop about more naturally but be aware if you do it they aren't UV stable so they crumble with time but then again I seldom keep anything I make for long so its not an issue for me.

Hi.
Well the main naked bike part is just about finishes there is only the footrests to put on and the painting of a few bits and bobs. So far it has basically just fallen together no real skills required and its been fun to build.  Pity it will all be hidden under a fairing ...especially when my gloss work is always a bit messy. The only bits added that didn't come with the kit are bits of wire heat shrink and filler and yes I know the real one doesn't have heat stained welds on the petrol tank but it looked to bland in plain aluminium.
Pete.
