    Let me know how that inspection camera goes I been looking at those for awhile now, just wondering if it gives a clear enough view at 1.3MP.

    Well sort of a postman :)
    Actually I had it delivered to my friend's factory so we can fit splash guard, DRO, coolant system etc. Hopefully it can come home soon.

    Not today but recently got these for Sylvie (details will probably go into build thread over the weekend)

    Screen has been fitted already, handlebar will need to wait until I winter is over or I have a spare set of heated grips due to the use of J B Weld to keep the current ones from coming loose!

    (Edit: Yes, the clocks and/or the screen are a bit wonky. They look a little better now as I've adjusted them since this pic was taken)

    Both of those look like they will fit, but who knows :idk:, I ended up cutting the inner screw piece off, then had to take 2 mm off each of the 7 main screw holes, feeling quite good about it all as i tightened the last screw down, then as I went to close the cap it wouldnt, the caps 10mm wider than the tank aswell.:aggressive:

    I have also found a strand of cable wire to be fine enough, and it is high tensile, so it doesn't bend too easily.

    Be careful with the oxy file set, don't file the jets to the next size up.

    I forgot to do my unboxing video... I'll never be hip. :-D
    But here's what I got:
    IMG_20170719_093635.JPG ebay special, from china/Hong Kong, seems to fit and work, fuel cap and ignition, though I had to rewire the connection, but it may have been me ordering the wrong model. Now, what to do with the rest of the bike...

    To be fair, this was last friday. I think. Working every day kinda messes with your perception of time. Anyhoo, these are the very last pieces I've been waiting for for Mia. Now, if only I had any time off to put everything back on. Crazy talk, I know. Nearly 3 months later, am I still regretting selling Bikelette? Why, yes, yes I am, thanks for asking...
