Beautiful, I always have liked Planet Blue.
Great job.
Nice that you used stock exhaust. For me, they are the best.

Impressive Lone Builder.   An inspiration to those of us that are still in the process and getting discouraged because things aren’t going as fast as we hoped.  Thanks for sharing. Very nice bike.

Hey,

I missed the deadline for BOTM  :( but am more than happy that folk though it worthy of nomination. Thanks for all the positive feedback.

Don't get disheartened, Blackwell; just stick at it and you'll get there. And when you do, it's a feeling like you've never felt before - trust me, NEVER!

Maybe you will ride it along the comber bypass to daft Eddies forma pint

I might be able to do that about next Sept. The plan is to ride the bike from Belfast, South Africa to the original, and home, Belfast in good old Norn Ireland starting some time around Feb '19. About 15-20,000 kms depending. Reckon I might need that pint. Will be in BFS week after next, if I can get one to fortify me before I go.  ;D

If I can be so nosey, is Zimbabwe your home country or did something bring you there?

No worry, MauiK3. "Home", as indicated above is Belfast in the north-east of the island of Ireland - hard to find the right name these days that doesn't offend somebody. I came to Zim on a 1-year contract in 2002!! Well, it's sunnier for one thing!  :)
