cleaned the garage after completing a few projects.
Built a new work bench top:
Built a kitchen table.
Drew up some leg designs and had my machinist weld them up, then made the top out of oak:
And finally spent yesterday evening tidying up.

Spending way too much on shiney stuff....
"It's better to keep your mouth shut and appear stupid than to open it and remove all doubt"
That looks like a nice workshop.
Dam im jealous of the space you yanks get when you have a house with a garage.
You would laugh at the size and price of british homes let alone the sorry boxs that are passed off as a garage.
I designed the bench area to be only about 20" deep so that it fits snugly against the wall and a second car could theoretically be parked in the garage if needed.
Clean space. My garage looks like a tornado went through it. Literally. I've got shit all over the place and on the floor. Like a frickin' homeless tard, I am.
Thought I would fire up the welder again to make my own cat eliminator for the track bike. I went super cheap and bought some mild steel exhaust tubing from the local auto store on Friday. Probably was aluminized. It welded black but brushed clean. And chopped up part of a stainless exhaust I had laying around to weld a stub on the collector.
4 1/2 pie cuts later. Finished by Monday after I picked up some stainless filler and filled my second argon tank for purge. Turned out nice.
Did all the squidly trackbike stuff like install an ignition bypass harness, (fork extenders and shimmed rear shock had already been done earlier), installed a quickshifter, removed the pair valve and exhaust valve, then flashed to ecu for all the above...

Swapped out the cast OEM Brembo brakes for some, ummmm, cast Brembo brakes I had lying around.
Modified some spacers to fit. Took the brake lines from an unrealized BMW build.
Bled and zip tied then bled again.
Biggest tip on bleeding brakes, take the calipers off and press the pistons back in the bores to remove the stubborn traces of air in the caliper bores.
Checking back into CR.net because i been a lazy motorcycle neglecting bum.
