Another boring update without much progress , BUT, the Mitas Tyers arrived and have been fitted on the rims, Chrome parts are finished but hasn't arrived in the post yet,

No parts from UK arrived yet, so engine has come to a stand still, I did paint my spare 1950 frame, so I stripped every part of the 1953 frame and bolted it all back onto the 1950 frame (lot of work just for a correct frame number to match the engine number).

I haven't taken any pictures, as it looks exactly the same as it did before I changed it all over.

Next week I should be able to make a lot of progress when all the ordered parts arrive. fingers-crossed(Can't wait)..Hans

Don't tempt me, I'll pedal it anywhere, I am rearing to go, it's been 12 month since I bought boxes full of bits and 3 frames.

No MD, this rack was on my 53 and already painted green, your rack is in a pile of bits that will be the 1953 D1.

However, thanks to you, Your 50 front guard is coming along nice, I blasted it and welded all the holes and cracks up, I just have to spent a bit more time panel beating it,  before I can prime it and trail  fit it on the 50. (pictures below)

Hi Jess, Yes I am really happy with the tyres, they suit the bike perfect.

Here is a pic of the clearance under the front wheel after welding the 30mm into the centre stand, I  can finally see the result and the clearance is with new front springs fitted as well.

Forks-on-2.JPGForks-on-1.JPG

I fitted my little 3" peep mirror for rego, new chrome and gasket on the petrol cap, new front brake cable works great, new brake shoes, fork bushes, plunger bushes, new bearings, it should ride like new. Next, final assembly of the engine, Save up for exhaust, wiring and ignition and find or buy a 1950 headlight, (Gary Arnell, Ausbantam is not answering messages I sent to buy a headlight?????)

I said to myself, Self,,,,,,, You are not allowed to start working on the 48 rigid until this 50 is finished, Can't wait...

That's alright MD, what do you expect for a 65 year old guard, of cause it has more hits than Elvis Presley., I just finished panel beating it and it is looking great.

I think from memory, your headlight is of a later D1, Try a magnet on it to see if it is a early aluminium shell.?

When i will need to repaint the D1, i will ship it to you. At least the tank..dunno
I also fited the mitas-H01 tyres by the way..
Did you check that you can see behind your shoulder with that position of the mirror?? I know its early for that, but if you can move it more to the right, just near the twistgrip, would probaply give better view. I had to make a new pole for mine to extend it, since i could only see my shoulder, even that i fited as right as i could..

I can see under my shoulder if I lift my elbow a bit, I hate the look of the long mirrors and yes I know It is all about safety, Your new Bantam looks really nice and should give you a bit more power than the old D1, I hope it is going to be a easy just servicing project for you.

If I painted your D1 tank I would paint a bantam chicken on the side with lots of sparks and wires coming out of it's%$#@!@roflrofl

Got to go, time for another coat of primer on the front guard.

You are quite correct, problem is the D1 I was breaking was such a mish mash of parts.

Hi Hans,

It is coming along nicely, my project as stalled, still waiting for the silencer to turn up. 

What you need to do is bring all your pant gear and come visit the UK , You would be well busy.

Hi All,

I finally MADE time and painted my front guard for the 1950 plunger, And I thought that it might be a good idea to take some pictures as I went along and explain the way I painted my gold leaf pin stripe and number plate section.

NOTE: All the paints I used here are a Base coat type and need clear coating over the top for protection, But any paint will do, just don't mix and match, Try to stick with one product and brand as not to get fry up's and paint pealing off.

1: The guard was painted green and the pressed number plate section was masked out and sprayed black.

2 and 3: Next, I used a computer cut mask I made earlier and placed it onto the black panel.

4: I than used a airbrush to spray part of the mask in gold metallic, You can use a spray-can as well.

paint-front-guard-1-one.JPG

5: Next I masked the gold area and sprayed the cream BSA 125 cut out section.

6: After is dried I peeled the mask of leaving the paint behind.

7: I than unmasked the whole guard.

8: Next I placed 3M plastic fine line tape down as a guide to where I wanted the pin-striping to go, The good thing about this is that you can pull it off over and over again, Until you are happy.

paint-front-guard-2-two.JPG

9: When you are happy with the pin stripe lay out, You can bud more tape against each side of the centre guide tape and pull the centre tape out, Leaving you a perfect gap (3mm. in this case) Next, mask the whole guard, Only leaving the pinstripe gap exposed.

10: Spray the pin stripe in the colour you like, I used my airbrush again but you can use a spray can or even a brush, depending on the paints you are using.

11: For a special touch, I have been using 24K gold leaf over my gold metallic (Why?, Because I can), I used about 8 pounds worth of gold leaf for this guard.    I sprayed (can be brushed) a sticky two pack clear coat over the gold metallic I sprayed earlier And while the clear is still sticky I gently pressed the gold leaf over the top using my finger.

12: Next I used a very soft brush to gently brush any access gold off.

paint-front-guard-3-three.JPG

13: If you are careful you can get a lot of area covered with just one small sheet (leaf).

14: Unmask everything, remembering that the clear under the gold will still be fresh and is easily damaged until it dries properly.

15: I my case, I sprayed the protective 2 pack clear coats over the complete guard.

paint-front-guard-4-four.JPG

Using my technique for pin striping is easy and anybody can do it, so if your tank is missing the gold pin stripe, just have a go.

See ya'hhope-that-helpsHans
