Ok....agony is setting in, small parts are needed to finish this off then I can get all that nasty 'clean' image off of it! To go are a Red Pace inner chainring mounted with SRP bolts, just need the spacers and another clear Onza grip which I have but can't be bothered to slip it off a set of bars in my Parts bin.
Just mounted a matching pair of Panaracer Spikes (weather appropriate!!) as I wanted to ride it without smashing a NOS SmokE/Dart combo. I am considering mounting some lighter coloured tyres to see what they look like?? Pinched some red ferrels on and gave it a rub.
The decals are the biggest addition. Albeit they state DH the bike is a 1000DS but I wanted this colour scheme as its the original the bike came with. They were an absolute sod to get on so once completed I clear matte coated them with some Tamiya stuff wich does'nt show at all and will hopefully keep them in good nick for the future.
Here is my boyhood dream (number 2 of 37), bit heavy on the pics and spec will follow on completion but for now here it is (excuse the Van in one pic, no idea where that came from?)
Panoramic attempt to get it a bit closer.....kinda works
Spike rear was quite hard to come by and always found it odd this combo was size wise reversed from the Smoke/Dart idea:
My other black bomber... in bent panoramic!
Thats it for now.... going to work on my Chill Pill key rings...!
