Been working out a new system for the engine plates i just got made - as they stand at the minute they stop me getting the engine u-bolts out, so i couldnt take heads off without dismantling the bike completely - and when i get my LSR i need to be able to pull them to verify record [the flame of blind optimism burns bright in my garage]
also spent a little time starting mocking a rough idea out for the supercharger mount

QM from britishironworks has sorted me a treat - hes getting me these plates lazer cut for the primary drive on the panther im building at the minute. assuming i got my measurements right they will be lovely. cant wait to get hold of them - then i just need to make up a million spacers to separate the plates - that im not looking forwards to too much...

So my dad has decided he wants a swingarm panther. I got back the stock rigid rear end i gave him and sorted a set of swingarm parts so now im heading that way. still loving the springer/4spoke but the shorter wheelbase sits better to me. the tank i robbed off dad too nasty colour with wrecked chrome but the shapes nice.

seem to spend my life putting clutches together. be it mine or other peoples - but at least this one is on the panther trike, and witha little luck its the last time, so that means its getting towards done - maybe THIS summer after i thought last summer would be done

had a visitor on an enfield the other week. i just noticed i hadnt put a pic up here. nice thumb size hole in the pipe so with a bit of jiggery pokery made the nasty shagtail exhaust off the pink panther melt seamlessly onto this icon of indian motorcycle history - classy eh?!
