Re: Little bit more progress....

She is a keeper. She does have some flaws however, such as not letting me "borrow" the front end off her Fireblade!

Re: Wheel colour

Anyone got a picture of a wheel without discs so I can see what bits I need to rub down? Bearing bits are easy enough, but I currently don't have discs to check which bits I should do....

Re: flat tyres

Think I'm going to go for M7RR's once I finally get paid. Been 4 weeks since last pay day and still another 2 to go!!

Good job I don't have much more to do. Except brake discs, chain & sprockets, front fork overhaul and new rear shock.......

Re: Wheel colour

Good point about the gold. Turns out there was not enough gold leftover from previous jobs to to the wheels anyway. All the colours they did have I didn't fancy. So going for black with the rim red instead of using rim tape afterwards. Front isn't so bad, but rear is flaking off everytime you go nea...

Re: Last night's progress...

Blade front end would be first choice, but gotta keep costs down for now! So some elbow grease required!
