Had a go at straightening the headlight frame. Used some oxy and got it hot enough that it bent straight, but then the headlight cup was twisted out forward. This is sleeved onto the bar, so I cut the welds and moved to where I thought was right and rewelded it. Unfortunately with the headlights on itís still pointing down a bit so will need to redo it again

I like that, it just looks kind of 'right'.

Somewhere I have a photo I took at Beaulieu Motorcycle World, of a bike with a Volvo car engine in it.  One day I'm going to sort out my old photos and digitise them!

I asked the owner if he was going to ride it round the race er demo track and he said not till he'd worked out how to make it go round corners.  He was deadly serious!   Smiley

Still paint stripping & sanding, so nothing new to show.
These arrived in the Post today though. I don't think I'll be able to use them, but they were only 8 quid each, so worth a go.
Motorcycle storage pods, intended for tools, gloves etc. They do a version with an over-centre clip & hasp for padlocking too. They're thick plastic with a large screw-on lid & look like those large Thermos flasks for soup or whatever.
I bought them because storage space in the Pop is non existant. It's basically a 2 seater car without even a boot. Even wearing a jacket is a bit of a pain because there's nowhere to put it if I take it off. I've just ordered a pair of mesh door pockets from Archie at Just Kampers & have made a small storage box between the seats, but that's it. So I thought I might be able to tuck one of these in each corner, behind the seats, but at 15" long by 5" diameter, they're probably too big. They're designed to be outdoors on a motorcycle, but I haven't got anywhere on the chassis I could hang them either. Worth a try though.

Picked up a 2cv headlight bar last night. I had lights already, but was struggling on how to mount them as they sit in cups which allows them to swivel.

I was going to cut the ends off and weld them to the shock towers, but the frame is curved and it looks like it will wrap onto the beam nicely.

I need to straighten it out a bit, but pretty happy about it overall
