Your bikes look fantastic Steve. M12 x 1.0 is a very odd size thread indeed. Usually 1.25 would be the finest M12 pitch.

Your bikes look great Steve. You've certainly put in the effort. The little last minute things can take a lot of time.

I ordered a new battery for the YB8. I was going to order a standard FZR1000 sized battery -YTX14- but luckily I checked. Of course Bimota uses a different size -CB10- and the other battery wouldn't have fitted in the box. The new lithium battery will be 1.1kg compared to 3.9kg of the original so that's quite a saving.

I've just spent 2 days rebuilding and bleeding the rear brake and getting it working. It's a pain to get all the air out sometimes. I've even got a vacuum bleeder and it didn't help much. I don't even use the rear brake on the track!

I fitted a new Koso tacho as the standard one started playing up. I hope it works well.

I've just got to fit the bellypan and load the van and I'll be out to the track setting up tomorrow. See you all there.

But did you know it is an authentic Bimota? It has the Bimota badge of authenticity on the triple clamps and Bimota stamped on the frame. It was a great find so we stole it for our display for a little while.

The Bimota book does mention that they built the Paton frames , but never gets mentioned anywhere else.
