That's why bikes are better than most women. They always want to be ridden

Beautiful machine! I can't wait to see how you plan to adapt that Kawasaki tank and fairing onto her.

Thank you V8Tranny. The front brakes were the inspiration for the entire overhaul as they resemble old Brit TLS drum brakes with vent scoops....the rest followed on from that original thought. Swapmeet parts such as the old alloy guards added to the old skool look, tank swap was a synch and the other, largely cosmetic, work came out how I imagined, so well chuffed. It did morph, like some projects, as parts and ideas ran through my head......built in a budget as I had planned.

Haha, thank yoooo....it is a bit beastly Kitty, as an '80s Honda sport bike it does go nicely, if a little squirrelly on the new Mefo tyres The narrower tank shows off a bit more of the engine which I like.

Here's the build thread if you're interested? : http://www.dotheton.com/forum/index.php?topic=68417.0

Shame it's a UK winter now and I'll not take it out too much this side of Spring

I want a good photo shoot of both of my toys as they compliment each other.



A mate is a semi pro snapper and we're looking for a suitable location.

Cheers guys.

Given your location, it should not be hard to find the right setting for a shoot. It has been quite some time since I was last over, but I seem to remember some great old industrial buildings near Crowley ?

Yeah, the Cowley area (where the BMW/Mini plant is) has an industrial feel about it. I had thought of a more rural setting or at the farm where my workshop is, they have big steel lined doors and concrete, nice.
Here's a picture taken by some old petrol pumps at a coach company. I asked and the owner said she was happy to let me do what I wanted.

Nice shot. For me there has always been a feeling of connection to the working mans history in old commercial settings. Also, your car appeals to me so much as it brings memories of the 60s/70s when I raced Alterds.
