Looking good Stan.
Your lucky to be able to find someone still doing cadmium plating over there, it's nearly impossible to get cad done in Australia now days.

Graeme, I consider myself very lucky.
I'm from New Jersey, formerly a major industrial state, where I believe there are no chrome platers at all. Within 40 miles of where I live in Ohio, there are two good shops that I have used, plus a world-class chromer near me. The two different cad platers that I have been using are only two miles from the Ducati/Triumph dealer where I work.
As far as machine work, there are hundreds of machine shops in Ohio, plus a vast supply of used machine tools on the market.
If you are a gear head, Ohio is a great place to be.

Did we talk?

I believe we did but, I apologize, I am horrible with names. The conversation covered a number of things including missing pieces compliments one vendor. Nice progress. Can't wait to see it finished and moving under its own power again.

Very cute bike. The Kingfisher blue is very eye-catching.
