No Super Car yet


Long time since any update but have been a little busy, no super car or car project yet as funds not available so enjoying the Honda CB900 despite in the summer the engine throwing a timing chain tensioner all through the engine breaking into little bits and requiring a full rebuild, this took many weeks to resource parts and was finally back on the road 2 days before the TT Races so the journey through the night to catch the ferry without even a test run was a little on the nervous side but it never missed a beat all the way and a great holiday was had.

Have powdercoated a few bits and put some daytime running lights on for safety along with a 4-1 system getting rid of the heavy 4 - 4 exhaust system, the bike is so much lighter now and sounds WoW really meaty and with the engine now run it it's a lot more powerfull than before.

Once winter arrives and the Honda is off the road there are a few minor jobs to do including a small dent in the fuel tank that needs pulling out, the seat recovered in black leather and the rear arms powdercoating and brakes improved with braided hose and discs drilled, that should keep me busy.

In the meantime i have just started on a new MTB project using a Kona Hoss Deluxe frame i purchased some time ago, it has been repainted green, a new Shimano SLX 1-11 Groupset complete with hydraulic brakes arrived this week along with some wheels specially built up for me, looking forward to getting this on a few trails.

Still look our for Marcos cars on the road and hopefully one day the right project will find me,
