Here is my Seca 550 so far. It now has FZ600 front forks and brakes. The calipers are spaced out to match the bigger brake rotors that go with the Honda CBR600F wheels. I have Progressive suspension 13 1/4" rear shocks. An FJ600 rear brake M?C and caliper. An unknown,probably MAC, exhaust from e-bay that almost fit. Canondale headlight and VF500f handlebars. It didn't quite bolt together and there are a few minor details to still get straight but it is ridable this year and I will be able to finish it and race it next year.Looks like Brainerd is out for me this year too, so, no races at all this summer for me.


Unfortunately my summer is about over. I have to be back at work in Alaska July 31, and we are going to go to CA for a week right before that to visit the youngest son. We haven't seen him since his last deployment to the friendly middle east. The Marines sent him to the desert twice so far and he is going to re-up in OCT. It worries his mom but I think it is a good fit for him. Just to keep it on topic, He has a CBR600RR.

This is my MG Midget. I haven't even had time to get it started this summer. The batter is DOA, the water pump is leaking and the brake master cylinder is dry. Anybody want it?

This is my dog on the tundra outside our house in Alaska this spring.

Dude, thanks for sharing!
Hope you get to ride the Seca.
Can't blame you for visiting your son, good on him for being dedicated.
I had to pass on a '62 "spridget" that needed lots of work. Yours look a lot nicer. Too bad I'm here and it's there.
Nice pooch.

Fuzzy,
People ship cars all the time to the south. I don't think it is made of gold, but figure it is worth 3000 or 3500. It doesn't need much, but it is old and Brit.
