That is bloody lovely - what a transformation and what an end result - superb.

Looks like you have the leather stitching down to a fine art - respect due on that score.

What whisky did you use by the way??? :) might get myself some if it means I get end results as good as this!


Anything from the Isle of Islay and one of these :)

Very,very nice, a quintessential (thank heaven for spell check!) British sports bike perfectly finished.Well done.
Just a thought if whisky helps lug lining what sort of substances are needed to reproduce some of those fancy Italian paint jobs!
