looking good  8) . What gearbox did you fit ? I thought the standard chinese transfer went on the inner like the one fitted in the first pic.  Did you also have to retro the pull start cord coil in another direction ?

Looking good mate  ;)

The one you brought along to Brooklands had a beautiful dash display, really classy - can't wait to see what you're planning for this one.
