    I got the KX idle sorted. Fixed up a couple of things on the ZXR, was getting it ready for sale, but I think he's buying my 650, instead.... Also did a little more on the RS125.

    Sitting around feeling sore and sorry after some surgery but needed to keep busy so I brought my instrument binnacle inside and finished wrapping it in the Carbo Fibre wrap... reassembled the speedo and tacho into their housings... doesnt look too bad actually. I still need to polish the idiot light coloured lenses and glue them in but I might wrap the spare I have in the brushed stainless wrap I have which is more the factory look... just so I have an option... :)

    and a few more pics from the carpark , when I was leaving, I had one older guy come up and tell me I was a lucky bastard for owning a Suzuki Titan, he asked if he could sit on it and get his photo taken, I was like go for it brother.

    that RGV was super tidy

    Found the brushed Stainless wrap and did the spare dash panel in it. I am a bit torn now as it looks nice and is closer to the original finish.
    Later in the week I will sit both up on the top bridge with gauges and take pics so I can decide which I prefer.
    Here it is with no gauges mounted. I had to be a lot more detailed on this as it shows any wrinkles on the edge more then the Carbon fiber one.

    Nice bikes there (except for that poor half a Moto Guzzi, some one please put it out of it's misery).

    I agree about the Poor Guzzie @Murdo but I am loving the Rickman CR just above it...apart from the bumble bee seat that is...
    Plus I have a soft spot for the BSA Gold Star as well....

    The Guzzi certainly polarised people , I know the guy who built it he had a heap of parts blasted by me for the build.

    He comes from a family of Guzzi riders and I think this was his way of saying **** you, it is my bike and I will do what I want :)

    Here is a pic the day he got it registered and dropped in at the shop to show me the finished product

    That's not too different to many of the CX500 mod bikes. I don't like it, but everyone to their own.

    Quick question... does anyone know the correct Font for the YAMAHA lettering? My better half has this your beaut Silhouette Cameo craft machine that can do stickers etc so I thought I might try my hand at making some up...

    Nice collection of bikes there. I like the 750SS (my old model), some nice Laverdas and the mighty Bridgestone, even if it is only a litt'un. Vintage Yam race bike brings back memories.

    Another question for the masses... who has found that head measurements give a good representation on helmet fit... specifically on Bell helmets. I have my eye on a Bell Bullitt Triple Threat helmet but dont know if the local store will let me try one on for fit... The Bell guide says XL is 60-61cm and I fall into that range (no comments on big heads required lol) I remember back in the day when I got my Orange flake Shoei it was an XL and fitted like a glove, I did have considerably more hair then that now though... All opinions welcomed....:)
