Be nice to see it "come to life" again. Been trying to fill all the scratches in, each time I go round I find more!

Lol, two bikes although one is sold and waiting to be picked up. The 1200 is getting streetfightered slowly.
I've only just got the unit for the purpose of working on the Atlantic and keeping the house from looking like Steptoes yard!

Wotcha Chewy, your thread spurred me on to take a couple of pics of the Pac / Progress (only rubish cameraphone shots, but will post up on separate thread......)

Your shed looks okay, but definately needs more livestock.......

Pac24 with a jet?! I didn't think they were old enough to be released from the MOD yet.
Did you try her out before you started the refurb?

Have you tried to find orange antifoul paint? I keep my A21 afloat, after half of the season it was nightmare to clean it, and i think a bit of shallow osmosis came into so I need to fill all of the scratches, put some anti-osmotic primer and then anti foul paint. Only one I've found was Hi-vis orange used on keels of racing yachts. Has anyone seen orange antifoul on sale?

Funny you should say that a lad yesterday said most street fighters have been flung down the road.
Mines not been crashed, got the Renthal bars fitted, rear indicators removed and fitted within brake light, head light is twin "street fighter" style and smaller indicators, just looking at putting the twin lights in a fibreglass fairing.....

Nice.

The lad is usually right, but some people-me included-just don't like fairings.
