Couldn't post this on D7 or B175 restorations as it's a bitsa! It's taken a year and still not quite finished. (See my other post - side panel screws!)

From this:

Have tank badges, new seat, and a Mikuni carb is on the way!

No Keith, would like some info on the clasp mechanism for the wire battery holder, then perhaps I can make one. Otherwise it's tie-wraps!

Many thanks Kieth and Stubaker. Stu, do you just flip the catch over to tension the wire strap?

Hi

yes the clasp flips over, I noticed that the upright wire has a kink outwards near the top giving an angle that presses into the battery to grip it.  At least that’s the theory, in practice on the underside of the clasp the cut off ends to the wires interfere with each other meaning that every fastening/unfastening is a fiddle!  When I made up my own wires I thought I’d got it wrong but it’s a case of “they all do that sir”!

I’ll post some more photos when I’ve resized them.
