Hi guys. First post here...

Every winter i do a project, sometimes a car, but for the last few years a bike. This year its been a Ducati, same as last year, and the year before it was a Suzuki.

So my thoughts are turning to the next project... which i want to be a scrambler style bike. With that in mind, i will be looking for a donor, so i am looking for suggestions and insparation!

The criteria is...

Air cooled
Spoked wheels
500cc or bigger
Must have a strong reliable engine
Budget of about £2000

Any suggestions?

I'm going to move this to Show and Tell so it doesn't drop off the bottom so quickly.

You might want to edit the title of the original post so people can see what the project is?

I like your mudguard bracket mandrel. Wish I had the machining expertise to make stuff like that. I landed up brazing tabs onto mine.

Loving the birds-nest on the floor in this picture:

Did you buy a used car loom or is that what you ripped out of the bike? Car loom is a good way to get lots of different colour wires cheaply.

What's the little PCB with the LED readout on it?

yes, I went to the scrap yard and got some bits of car loom for the wire, its a good source...

the digital readout is for the fan... The fan was originally switched by the old ECU but the new ignition does not have that function... this is a cheap and easy way around it, the little unit is less than £5 and they are quite reliable and can be set to switch at any temperature. the temp probe fits in the original sensor plug with some araldite... the unit is now in a little plastic box...

I like to draw the circuits of the wiring as I do it, and write the colours on the print out as I go along... nice to give any new owner some help for the future, otherwise it would be a nightmare to fault Mr. Green
