I'm calling this one finished.

It's not the easiest kit to work with, having several fit issues, notably the windscreen which is an atrocious fit, If I'd had access to my AB, I'd have stripped the chrome, made it fit and sprayed it with Alclad, as it is I simply posed it in the open position.

I wired the engine and battery and opened up the front of the stock air filter to give a more hot rod air scoop look.

Looks neat Al, the blue sus parts and manifold tie it all together .

That's a twist I like, looks so different to "the norm" just with the non standard paint and wheels, the engine bay is a superb touch.

Al: Don't know how I managed to miss this until now because I had been waiting for it. This is definitely I bit different from your usual builds, but, as usual, it shows your craftsmanship. I particularly like the two-tone paint job. My jury is still out on the lack of fenders though. Overall this is another example of your excellent abilities.

I hear you John and ideally I would have liked to incorporate cycle fenders at the front but my limited bench prevents this at the moment I'm afraid.

That's a sharp looking "Eurod" if you'll allow the term. I actually like it without the fenders and bumpers, gives it a stripped bare look and focuses on the essentials. Top notch Al!

Eurorod is perfectly acceptable, it European Hot Rods it perfectly.

That is really cool, and I love the colors. What engine is that? What kit is it? Can the kit be built stock?

Thanks MP.

This is the kit and it can of course be built stock. I simply used the stock kit engine.

I love the finished product, and really like how it gives off the "Eurorod " flavor. Your choice of "big and littles " for the wheel and tire combo really fit the overall look, but with the front wheel drive I have the feeling you will be going through a lot of tires.

Thanks Sam.

As for the front tyres, I don't think 74bhp is going to exactly set them alight!!!
