Sounds like a fantastic piece of work, I love to see it. I just Email pictures to myself and choose a small size when asked!

Hope you find those nuts.

The gear puller arrived, stripped its thread and went back. I couldn't remagnetise the flywheel off the bike as it simply wouldn't shift and I was reluctant to use the hot spanner so I put the yoke on, blasted it and reassembled the ignition system. A firm swing and away it went, running like a good 'un.

I spent the lunchtime turning up brass bushes on the company lathe for the seat mechanism. The off switch stud was turned up in Tufnol  and works well and I am considering drilling a hole in the carb to fit an idling adjuster screw. This week, I need to get the seat made and fitted which will see the bulk of the mechanical work done.

Once it is fitted, the bike will be rideable and then I can start on the cosmetics and the wiring. I must contrive a shunt regulator for what I have in mind and as the Bluebird has no speedometer, I have to fit a nice digital one where it will most offend the purists.
