Knowing how hard it is to make fabric follow 3D shapes, I must say your work is highly impressive if this is your first try :GJ:

Thanks, heat is the key and don't be afraid to pull and stretch the vinyl..got some side panels to cover so will add more pics...also have an issue regarding my carbs..i have amals carbs fitted (came with the bike) and I've managed to get some stock carbs (know you guys don't rate them , but must be an improvement on the amals) but the two pipes are missing, guess they fit to the two tubes that run down the side of the frame but are they just breather tubes?

Well spotted, just simple breathers for the area above the diaphragm.

Btw.: What are you going to do with those Amals and the corresponding inlet rubbers? (I somehow doubt they are the same size as stock...)

Cheers,
Greg

not sure , ill see how well the stock carbs run... the bike does run ok on the amals, but they don't help with starting especially when cold having separate cokes..

So... fitted new jets etc and refitting diaphragms can be difficult without pinching them... this is how i do it...take a small piece of perspex and place over the top so you can see when the diaphragm is sat in its groove then apply some pressure for 5 to 10 mins, them remove and fit spring and cover...( if it does lift, apply a small amount of Vaseline into the groove with a cotton bud and retry)
