        Completely stripped now,
        Half the engine at the polishers, wheels at the powder coaters. And the rest on its way back together. (Frame blasted and painted in Gun Metal Grey)

            Rear lights on! A bit of old skool meets new skool. The little round button indicators match the round curves of the old girl, I dont know how they comply though.........

                  Cheers guys,
                  Perdition, I guess the reflector is another part of compliance i am lacking, In the rear lights department?
                  How much greif has anybody experienced with over active law enforcement?

                    ^ If it's already licensed then forget about it, if you have to take it over the pits then you'll need something

                      trust me a rear reflector fitted to a fender eliminator can sometimes make all the difference

                        +1 Does make a difference.

                          Sweet, now you gotta work on it asap cause i wanna see the finish But take your time, make it hell schmicko, then get someone to have a look over and make sure it will pass the pit's(if it needs to be), no point paying the cost's to go over the pits to find out your missing something like a reflector, like said above, now is it?
                          Success is nothing more then taking advantage of an opportunity.

                            I am lucky its already licensed and will be staying that way. I will take a punt on my maturity as motorcycle enthusiast (Old prick) to sweet talk (F*CK me copper, its genuine, straight of the production line) the local constabulary if the need arises
