Frame is now welded up and at the powder coaters after being blasted this morning, zinc plating was dropped off as well. Pics will be upped once I get it all back.

The only major mod was moving the lower right mount out about 25mm...

The shocks are aftermarket Redwing "hammerhead" alloy body shocks, I had them on my MX250A as well. They work pretty good despite the budget price.

good stuff CG, are you going to run the oil pump or have you given it the flick?

I have a NOS oil pump and oil lines etc, but the little plastic drive piece I don't have yet so fitting it will have to wait  ;) Only a couple of months till it's running.

PS: If you want to fit a race ignition to a TS185 the TM250 stator and rotor are a PERFECT fit

Here's the latest additions to the bike...

Carbies fitted up, it's amazing what you can achieve with an $8 length of silicon hose



Footpegs are on now, I welded a nut either side of the frame to act as a spring retainer



NOS DG swingarm, complete with a Pro-tec chain tensioner, looking good with a wheel finally fitted



Electrics have been tested, and nice blue sparks have been seen, just waiting on DC plastics side covers custom made in Suzi Yellow  ;D ;)
