Thought it was about time I posted a few pics of my bike! It's finally taking shape.

Thanks for the comments. To be honest this bike seems to have been fighting me all the way, will be nice to finally get it finished. Just need to get it painted, wired, ....and find a 4-2 exhaust!

I'm thinking it's going to have to be Diamond Sky Blue. Just letting the finances take a bit of a breather and then hopefully off for paint in a week or two. :D

Beautifully clean and detailed job you are doing there. My all time favourite too, twin front discs, makes the bike look "right" somehow......

Just noticed that the seller has relisted these pipes and put another £250 on the asking price :shock:
