USD ruins the look as well. Using the right springs and cartridge emulators will well andtruly update the forks.

NZ has a few guys who specialise in MC suspension, but I just import my parts off fleabay usually. Where are you getting the shock from?

Looking at Hagon rears from motozone and importing front replacement from overseas. 

Had all my parts I ordered turn up. 

Partsfish seemed to take ages and there's a couple bushes missing so I'll have to get onto that. 

This bike isn't looking like it'll be ready for summer :(

Maybe I should buy something else in the meantime?:smile:

Late xmas gift from the Mrs ... my bike will never be show room fancy but I like to think it will be :iconbiggrin:

It's basically all ready to be thrown back together. Just have to sort some shims for the engine.

Yeap so I brought this home today. Definitely needs stock paint and the exhausts sorted. 

Needs a few new old parts but otherwise a good bike. Might sell it again in a year or so.

Was this paint real cheap at some stage, cos I've had several that have been repainted that metallic blue

Must be :grin: looks the same blue as Mazda axela or what ever they're called. 

Gonna go the dark grey they came out in. 

And wtf is up with the bash plates!

I spent half the day trying to clean and polish the wheels :neutral:

I'm going to try and order a supplementary plate for this bike and paint it black and silver. This one makes me cringe. 

Also ordering a few plastic bits like the dash surround and number plate light cover.

Still collecting bits for the pop up. I was going to take it to Brass Monkey but I don't trust the clutch basket rattle haha. 

I just can't wait to get it painted. I hate the blue!
