So, here is my build of the Easy Rider bike. The parts when taken out of their packaging really look the part and the chrome finishing looks superb.
The first pack has the main fuel tank and the paintwork is beautiful. I have decided not to fit the parts to this at the moment until needed, and I have kept them in the protective packaging to stop any knocks when storing. The wheel comes as one piece with just the tyre to fit.
Next was the headlamp. Fitting these was relatively easy and stored until needed at a later stage.
The handle bars were next to be fitted along with the front forks and upper and lower triple trees.

More soon.

Thank you Graham, it's a great kit.

A little more done. Pictures of the completed front light and picture with the front wheel in place on the forks. I haven't fitted the wing morror just yet, I will fit that at a later stage.

More soon

A little more done to this great kit. I have placed the switch onto the handle bars and pieced together the upper and lower exhaust pipes. I did need a little patience fitting the brackets with those tiny nuts and bolts, but what an enjoyable build.

More soon

I really must get my eyes tested Mark, i thought the switch on the handlebars was a bell LOL

Great update, she certainly looks a fantastic kit to work on ThumpUp. Those pipes look very shiny. I can imagine the fun you must have had with the fixings!
