Just need to fit the controls and longer brake lines, and see what else needs tweaking.

And here we are, all finished.
Bleeding the brakes was a pain in the butt, til I bled the MC then all good.
Just need to extend the wiring for the horn and that'll be it.

Have sat on it in the driveway and it feels good being higher up, spin to the office later this afternoon to see how it goes

looks like a good job there and a hammer and a bin in the photos, so you have all the tools needed.
