Yay .... At last .... Someone who works as untidy as I do

Making some progress there

I hope you don't mind me saying .... I think you'll need to make up some support brackets for the clutch cable to prevent it from touching / chaffing the brake pipes .... Almost certainly an IVA fail point ( May be the photo playing tricks !! )

I have messy cycles.. i spend a day cleaning the garage, stays clean for another day.. then leave it messy for the next month and half until i cut myself badly, then clean it again......

It shouldn't take long to sort out some sort of bracket for the clutch.

i was also wondering i've often felt like using tie wraps every so often to secure things, but always thought it wouldn't be iva friendly. would there be a problem in using tie wraps to hold the clutch cable down to something?

Me too, only my cycles are even longer & I don't clean things up until I can't move any more or sometimes can't find some of the donor parts .... You know, the engine or such like

Personaly I would make use of the rubber lined P clips for the likes of the clutch cable.
That said, Heavy duty tie wraps should be ok, after all, all of the major manufactures make extensive use of them for the likes of looms and all that.

Hi Geeman,

you are certainly cracking on ..............love the colour too

may i ask why you haven,t put SB5 & SB6 into the seat back frame?
Those 2 parts create the triangulation ( strong) support for the upper rear suspension boxes ( CP5 & CP6 box ), which also supports the roll bar mountings.

cheers
andy
