Just a hint for you Frosty, dont use the flash when taking photos of these just put them outside were it is bright and then you will get that shot you are looking for, I look forward to seeing this finished, it will be better than any resto I will ever do that is for sure.

Cheers Mick.

Your a long time dead, so get out there and enjoy yourself while you still can :-) would loved to have been able to race vintage enduro bikes in Victoria, but sadly that as yet has not happened, so many blokes would have loved to be able to race, owell shit loads of us still have the memory's of racing enduro bikes back in the late 70's and 80's, time to move on to other things I guess :-) but if racing classes for vinduro bikes start then I will dust off my bike and be out there racing my old bike as that is what it was made for ( Racing )

i dont think it will be doing much riding i think my mate will be happy to just look at it the photos were taken in the shed so the light through the windows etc etc didnt make for a good shot the colour is spot on original and looks great the metallic paint he really did a good job i will have to go thank him and get him to do my rd 250 tank etc etc when im ready it will hopefully be like new all the parts i have i have got for it are going to make it look very special there is alot more parts to this bike than meets the eye it has alot of wiring and is basically a full roadbike scaled down a fraction i will post more and more photos soon i still need more bits but i know roughly what i need its there will be a few bits at the end ill need to add because there will be some stuff misssing and i have to get the seat sorted out wait till late next week should have the stickers late this week take the oil tank back and have it finished put the window and cap on it will look a lot better so will the headlight when i get every thing rechromed i think i will even get the shocks redone the wheels should polish up nicely thanks Michael.

i just bought some more parts the seat is a top job it would be hard to find better seeing as it is a custom cover it looks like the original the bike has been a slow money and time consuming excersize but it will show it when it finished need to have the wheels done and a few things rechromed a few more little parts and it will be ready to go  Smiley
