Just to bring everyone up to speed - pic's should be pretty self explanatory? ... Just ask if you feel the need?

Looking very nice.
Disregard the instructions regarding the speedo cable routing.
The two landings directly behind the steering neck hole are for the dash. You will notice a 'hole' cast in the neck casting , you will also notice it is directly below the speedo. This needs to be drilled out ,in the frame , for the speedo cable to go through. Not entirely visible on the finished model , but the speedo cable routing is.
One of the few things I have found so far in the kit.

This is amazing. Did it come pre weathered and painted or did you do that?

No, it wasn't pre-weathered - the kit comes in the raw - bare metal (largely). If you flip back to the first page you can see the build-up of the engine and the even slower build up of the weathering. And it's a long way from finished yet as it's my intention to finish it as a "loved, maintained, but never the less used" bike.

Thanks for following along and taking the time to comment.

Your pictures are no longer available on the page. Is there another place that I can access them? I always enjoy your weathering process.

Trying to upload these pic's of the finished Knucklehead but all hells breaking loose - photo hosting is now a malicious site - anti-virus has blocked it and won't let me open it again, finally somehow managed to get some pics on here but they appear cropped? Got to go and do a shop so feeling really frustrated at the minute - simple things huh!

I usually size my pics to 800x600 in Flickr, what size was it in your photo hosting software.

Casper, yes I had saved them at a larger file size for some reason and forgotten - got them down to my old photo sizes now and they fit the page properly. And thanks for the comment -'preciate it.
