You’re making a lovely bike there Steve, I’d looked at that type of tank on the CT but like you say its hard to get and expensive for what it holds. But your bike is a beauty in the build....!

I’ve just been out to the garage and checked the fitting of the new fuel tank, it fits exactly onto the carrier rack and will lock into place, no need for pipework because the tank is removable and has a flexible Pourer pipe within its outlet.
Chuffed to little meat balls - or something like that, reckon I could now reach the south coast! Not too sure about camping because if I were to lay down I simply could not get up again without aid.
DON’T GET OLD - IT DOESN’T PAY and it’s not nice....

Oh by the way - I had an OFF on the Helix last week - when making a very slow 160 deg left turn into my bike shop’s premises, and yes, a couple of folk lifted the bike from off top of me, - Shaken - but Not Stirred! and the bike wasn’t damaged, - just my pride!

Now that I’ve got my 6v indicators working correctly (at the correct flash speed) I’ve now got the LED lamp for my ST’s Stop/Tail Light, next job will be to convert the existing A/c supply from the generator to DC for the lamp’s power while giving me a much better and brighter light using lower current.

Spent my 84th back in hospital with chest and back pains..... CT Scan after 6 days showed that all stents are mostly blocked and cant be un-blocked, heart valves are not damaged enough to warrant surgery by Papworth......after 10 days went home in pretty much same condition and have not been outside the house since as c an barely shuffle instead of walking in a normal way. Generally feeling very tired and needing much rest, cant say when I can get back into garage to tinker, perhaps when I get return of some strength.

All the best,

Jim
