    Instrument panel made, used a small Koso tach which has a digital temp display on it, connected the sensor to the oil tank ... just because it was there really. It was only when reading the instructions afterwards that I discovered they make a sensor to read cyl head temp.....would have been more useful!

    Never quite sure if this is going to work but this may be a short video....

    If it does then the bits of debris flying past the camera are the paper I used to plug the exhaust ports after I'd rebuilt the motor and then forgot about.....not really my fault though, I was recently poo pooed by pwalo here and its taking a while to get over it.....!

    I'm not poo-pooing that... She's a beauty no doubt about it. I like it.

    I'm thinking of making some eventually Mark....currently I'm making 3 more frames/bodywork for friends...sort of human guinea pigs....
    Had been planning on trying a version with a Transalp engine after that but have now convinced myself I can squeeze in a CBR400 motor instead!

    Btw, this is what comes of spending too much time on the net, ever since I saw this thread I've been obsessed with building something similar.... https://www.caferacer.net/forum/gener...v-replica.html
