Well, this one is a real challenge. I am going to super detail it like I have never done before on any other model. I have the Scale Motorsports CF decals, the Top Studio super-kit and the chain kit (yeah, build this chain one link at a time, about $40 too. I bought an already built chain for my mountain bike for $20). I also have the brass fork kit from Tamiya. I had the super-kit for a good few years, in fact I had it for three years before I bought the bike kit. I had bought it for another bike kit not realizing it wasn't the correct kit number to go with it. Then when I decided to finally build it I had to order the chain kit, I had thought it was part of the super-kit which it wasn't. I got it from Japan in 8 days. The fork kit was discontinued, but I found it on Amazon for $15 from some Japanese company that seems to sell just toys. That took almost 2 weeks. I also added Pro Tech braided oil line with hex AN fittings. So here are mostly engine pictures and a some frame shots.

Very nice level of detailing! Tamiya kits are good that way to start with and adding add ons really amps up the realism.

Here is some further progress on the bike. I now have the engine in the frame with the exhaust system attached. I had to find a new free photo hosting site. Photobucket now charges money to link to forums.





I hand wound those little springs at the joining seems.

Thanks guys. Here's a little more work. I painted the fairings. The paint is just Testors guards red with alum. metallizer.
