Thumbs Up glad you sorted the links Fizzer, been looking back at this thread for 'inspiration' much better with the visual aids restored.

Shame those PRR seat units (or anything PRR for that matter) are like rocking horse now, would have loved one for mine.

On the www.sohc.co.uk site there is a forumite who now owns the moulds for the Phil Read Replica and 750SS models.There is also a group of PRR owners linked to that link.

There was a bloke called John Pearson who lived in Swanscombe near Dartford who hand made the tank and tail unit for me,using the PRR/SS seat as the basis.The tank on my special had to be different to the standard PRR/SS tank because of my frame modification,so it held slightly less fuel.

As for photobucket messing things around,the pics do work at the moment.Not sure how much longer for though.....

Interesting to read about your brother's experience modifying his Z650 Chickenstrip.The pattern Jota bars were a bit too complicated for what I wanted and once I had things set up almost how I wanted them I removed the heavy bit between the cross bar and the outer sections and had the joins welded up.This gave me an even better riding position...and they kept in theme with losing weight,especially off the steering.Once stoved black they looked much better.

Thanks to all for the comments.I still have good memories of the 750 and the photos make this easier Very Happy

My brother's 650 was a bolt-on bits special, nothing like the work that went into your 750. It did look good though. I've had a soft spot for Z650s ever since. i can't really remember the exact set up of the Jota bars now. Think they had four adjustment points (two either side)? Quite complex for a handlebar. I think my brother also tried old-style 'Ace' bars, but for some reason, didn't stick with those either.
