Classic combination silver/red, like the old Porsche 356, Mercedes of the day. The daft thing is i thought it was a champagne colour pre clean up. Hat's off to you, looking great.

Been following this thread since it started and it just keeps looking better and better. The frame has come up looking really good and I agree with Andy that it looks far better with its history showing patina than fresh respray. That day will probably come once it gets well used agian but for now it would be a shame to lose that character.
Are you a fellow bus owner?
I am in the process of respraying my T3 panel van. What is it with old vans and old bikes that seem to make them go together?
Mental illness perhaps :wink:
My sister lives in Yeppoon, and while from Sydney before coming here a few years ago, I spent many times up there. God I miss home and that warm orange thing in the sky, I cant remember its name, its been so long since I seen it :wink:

The panel signwritten with an old Italian bike shop would be the finishing touch :D
