I really must get my eyes tested Mark, i thought the switch on the handlebars was a bell LOL

Great update, she certainly looks a fantastic kit to work on ThumpUp. Those pipes look very shiny. I can imagine the fun you must have had with the fixings!

Gray


Thanks guys for your comments and supportThumpUp

Gray, it does look like a bell, but refers the parts as a switch. It is nice and shiny, well now it is, full of finger prints and smudge marks, whilst putting the brackets on. Had to get my chrome cleaner out.LOL
I did turn the lighting down when taking pictures, didn't want to dazzle anyone.Cool Cool

An update on the Easy rider build. In this pack we get to assemble the frame, which is well made and has some weight to it. This assembled very easy. I have also attached the rear brake light and number plate to the sissy bar. Other parts to assemble in the pack are the clutch linkage, rear brake and foot assembly.
This is turning out to be some size of a model and great fun to build.

More soon

Seeing the frame takes me back to the days of watching 'American Chopper' on TV BigGrin.

Looks a quality kit, Mark, and you are certainly doing it justice ThumpUp

Next update on the Easy Rider. The next stages we start to assemble the engine. This was very straight forward and assembled very well. The last few pictures I gave parts of the engine some wash and dark oils, just to highlight some of the parts without making it looked weathered.

The next few stages of the Easy Rider done. This time around we have had more of the engine parts, more to the chrome frame and the rear wheel. As before I have slightly washed the engine pieces with oils to highlight the areas.

More soon.
