Project is still ticking over. Ive been making a bit of progress, but its hard to measure sometimes.
Lately Ive had parts come from USA, Sweden and Australia and Ive had some more super finishing done. Ive also brought myself a welder and a bunch of tubing and Im going to fab up different length exhausts to the varying steps Vince from Burns has recommended to try out on the dyno - starting here and ending there kinda thing, before my buddy Rick makes an extra spesh one fro the finished length specs. Ive got all my electrical bits and the bike is ready to roll into the auto sparkys to run all the wiring that Im going to hide in the frame and various ways. Just trying to get time off work and Daddy duties at the moment is the problem...
Its actually starting to take shape and Im getting quite excited.

I was just thinking the same thing.

probably as I have just started on my build, my cases just resized in Bridgeport Mill with micro bore. turned out good.
I got some late EFI heads that only had 3,000km on them off a guy who did a Hammer build. I have new lifters, and adjustable push rod kit collapsible tubes, 560 cams, bronze gear. billet late EFI to carb manifold . all stuck in customs here in Australia. Should get next week.
so I'm excited.
