Check out the new background! Nice to keep things fresh :D
I have been umming and ahhing about what colour I want to do the wheels on the bike. I thought that leaving them as they were was a bit boring, and stripping them down to the alloy was a bit too BMW (eughhhh!). So I think I might go with a nice retro-cream finish with the tank decals the same colour. Also, I saw a bike with the same original seat/tail combination and thought that looked a bit crap, so I have re-done the image with a nicer seat and a new lamp. What do you think?

Back to the frontline :)

Was a fairly productive weekend, managed to find all the engine covers from under the piles of junk, and set about giving them a clean. When the wife asked where I was heading I replied, 'I'm off to the garage to give my bits a good rubbing, hehe'. Joking aside though, there really is nothing more satisfying than taking a dirty piece of metal and making it shine till you can see your reflection in it!


introducing: the beast...

and after...

stripping the clamps

'I'm so shiny, look at me shine!'

The only way to replace all the elbow grease needed for polishing - a nice cold beer :)
