Nearly there guys, I keep slowing down on the bike work as I have been working on the car,
Just have to finish off the wiring and put the saddlebag racks on……getting there eventually :roll:

/Rockedited : nice, but Far Too Big - 500Kb is 10 times the size they need to be !

Reduced in size :oops:

Yeahhhhhhhhhhhh Mick ...... Looks GREATTTTTTT ......... Am extreemely envious (remmember I pointed out envy means I'm glad you got one, wish I had one as opposed to jealousy which means I want that one and you shouldn't have it I should)
Honestly Mick it really does look a tribute to the work you have put into it espeecially as you have kept us up to date all the way through.

They'd look just as good at 50Kb as they do at 500 !

That looks absolutely brilliant. It would be good to see some footage when you get it on the road.

Looks really nice I would love any bike in restored condition and I am envious of anyone who can acctually do a good job themselves
