Hi John @johnb, yes, you’re right, the key chain/phone stand is from IKEA, and thanks for taking the time to look and your kind comments, you, too, Spiros @fiveten.
It’s been a bit quiet on the motorcycle front so far this year. I’ve jumped ahead with this build without taking many photos.
I’ve assembled the rear shock absorber. @rory please note Tamiya’s instructions say not to paint the coil spring.
Then got on with the rear swing arm, back wheel and brake, and chain assembly.
All went well until I tried to attach the rear wheel, the screw was too small to suit the size of the nylon spacer, I couldn’t work out why, maybe I fitted the wrong size spacer, I don’t know. Anyway, I bodged it with a cut off cocktail stick and a couple of drops of cyano, and all seems well.
That’s it for today, exhaust and radiator are next. Thanks for looking and happy new year modelling.
