Brat - CeeBee-6-Fiddy - What has been done. What is to do.

What I have done to the Brat - CeeBee-6-Fiddy so far.

Brat style seat made by butlers customs and caferacers from Newcastle.
Drag Bars.
Biltwell Kungfu Grips.
Junked the massive tail light. Fitted a Lucas replica.
CB450 cut down rear guard.
Wrapped the mid pipe of the Marshall Deep Tone 4into1 connector pipe.
Mirrors made from 2 different sets of crusier style ones.
Smaller indicators.
Removed the tacho.
Made sidecovers from perforated sheet. Airbox side has brass mesh.
Made sidecover badges.
Removed crash bars that came with te bike. Replaced with CBR650 Crash Knobs.
Lowered headlight with different mounts.

Still to do.
Centre the speedo.
Fit idiot lights to headlight shell.
Make different chain guard.
And anything else along the way that i think needs making.

Brat - CeeBee-6-Fiddy - sides covered.

Sidecovers done.
Right side has brass mesh in behind it. Airbox in-take is on that side. Its not supposed be an E. It was supposed to be a scallop. The perforations would not allow me to get the points of the scallop. Oh well.
WnRn Logos attached.
Now to clean salt that is attacking the engine. I live not far from the coast line. They storms we have had have brought sea salt inland.

Brat - CeeBee-6-Fiddy Break that black

Just to break up the black. WnRn logo badge. Wait till you see what I am doing to the sidecover on the other side.

Brat - CeeBee-6-Fiddy. - So close to DONE!!!!

Brat - CeeBee-6-Fiddy. - Wrapped Drag Oggy

Today's wrenchin.

Wrapped the exhaust connector pipe with header wrap. This is to hide the chrome that is coming away from the ugly weld.

Fitted a set of Drag bars. Lower is better.

Converted/mashed/cut up some CBR600 crash knobs in place of those horrid crash bars.

Few other things left to do.... 

Brat - CeeBee-6-Fiddy. - No Crashing

Crash bars are gone. Crash knobs will be added soon.
Different mirrors fitted. Recycled the Arlen Ness ones. They had been on the Speedmaster at one stage. I am undecided on the mirrors. I do have some oval ones.

Brat - CeeBee-6-Fiddy. - Its a cover up

One side cover is done. Maybe to be re-made.
Perforated aluminum sheet. Black plastic backing. Cable ties to hold it on.

Brat - CeeBee-6-Fiddy. - Shots

Took some general shots today.

Brat - CeeBee-6-Fiddy. - Light down low..

Finished lowering the headlight.
Now only have Speedo. Lowered it too.
Made idiot light console.
Cleaned from brakes and new brake fluid.
Fitted black rectangle bar end mirrors.
Still have to make the side-covers...

Brat - CeeBee-6-Fiddy. Front end.

Attacked the front end today. Different headlight ears. So I can lower the headlight. Which should change the lines of the bike. 

Got rid of the tacho. Made an idiot light console from a mirror.

Two goes at wiring these lights in. They have such fine wires that they break so easy. I have neutral light. OIl light comes on and stays on. I think the oil light is earthing twice. No I do not have an oil pressure problem. That will do till tomorrow.
