well, the seat’s on, it still needs mounting points but I need to fit the exhaust and rear electrics first.
I managed to buy a header from an XR-600 to get a 2-1 exhaust pipe.
It doesn’t fit because the bend of left header exhaust is too narrow, it hits the front frame tube.
So I have to mod the original one.
The rings that fit into the head are really badly corroded so I wil have to turn new ones and weld these on.
Furthermore I will use the Y-piece from the XR-600 to mod the original pipes.
Once this is done, I wil remove the engine and finish the frame.
