The old radiator was foobarred after flushing and testing it was found to have over 20 micro holes so I had Aaron Radiators from down south make me an uprated retro fit unit and I have to say what a fine job they did..

This is an amazing bike/project although I’m not sure if the resulting beast is rideable in the real world.

My idea of a go anywhere bike is something with an engine and 2 wheels and as little electrical stuff as possible - I’m an electrical/electronics engineer by training. My old BSA (magneto ignition) only has 4 wires, one switch (brake light) and one fuse. Looking at that amazing set up fills me with horror but look forward to seeing it all working on the road :D

We’re all entitled to our opinions and it’s always a positive thing to get other people’s perspective on my build. What you’re claiming here is indeed a very bold statement but you’re more than welcome to set off on your pushbike, I’ll stick with my K75 thanks....

Fantastic - a credit to your skills. Have followed this post from the start. I reckon that bike will be around for a long long time.

Keep the posts and pictures coming.

Some amazing metal work in thos panniers and rear box
Whats the function of the front frame structure?
What use is being well adjusted to a sick society?.

It hinges up to grab a bedding roll

Nice feature but surely there more to it than that, I mean its a very substantial structure (I was imagining it for plowing through the Zombie hordes in the upcoming apocolypse :D )

I admire your fabrication skills and patience

Brilliant - what's going on, on the nearside pannier?
Looks like a filler cap?
