    It looks great! Congrats. I would have kept it stock, changed the seat and the mufflers probable. Very nice!

    Being British is about driving a German car to an Irish pub for a Belgian beer, then travelling home, grabbing an Indian curry or a Turkish kebab on the way, to sit on Swedish furniture and watch American shows on a Japanese TV.

    Thanks for more congratulations.
    Carb paint was a difficult work.....especially on assembling !!! more spring to put.
    I have used aluminium grip base preparation and after was painted with 2k auto paint.
    For engine paint and other parts i have used 2k poliuretanic paint.
