Thruxtona

Started work on my project build this weekend. Putting a daytona front end on my 2010 EFI thuxton. So far I got the old front end off and the new steering bearing are in. Still need to drill and tap the new steering stops which I'm hoping to get it done on Wednesday.

Just got back from my buddy's metal shop. Drilled and tapped the bottom triple clamp for the new steering stops. Should have more progress this weekend. Ran into another issue last night. Need to switch over to a bonneville throttle cable so ordered one up on ebay last night. Hopefully that gets in this weekend.

Got some more work done today on the bike. Had to switch over to the bonneville throttle cables. Also got the stock guage bracket retrofitted to the daytona top clamp. Really just waiting on the special socket to torque down the steering lock nuts and should have the front end all buttoned up.

Yeah, those caliper mounts should be on the back side, not out front, right?

Yes, the forks are not on the right sides. Just put them on so I could mock up everything up top; clip ones, controls, gauge bracket, ect.
