I'm so chuffed you decided to respray it the same colour - looks fantastic.

I have to say the enjoyment in restoring old parts is one of the best things about doing up an old bike. Carefully polishing, repainting, bending, tweaking to make a component people think is then NOS is so satisfying!

I did a lot of that on my Tequesta and I really enjoyed it.

I'm not a fan of the colour BUT given the bike there was little other choice to be had. It's the right colour for the bike and as usual sin you've seen it done right.

Im pleased with how its turning out.

And in regards to bringing the old stuff back to life, untill i came to this site as a member, i didnt even know what NOS ment (truth). when i saw new stuff on ebay it use to boggle my mind why people pay it, i understand better now, and some times needs must, but for as much as polishing and fixing can be a royal pain, the end results like you say are sooooooooooo satisfying.

Thanks mate.

Cheers mate, the colour was a bugbear for me too, but in the end..... Romance, Nostalgia, Miss Money Penny, Kurtis and Charlotte,

well it all added up to No Choice. But once its built we can see, im holding out on my judgement till then.... :?

P.s Hope the Move went well, and you are enjoying Life, and we missed you on ebay MarketPlace during the move. And its good to have you back, keep up the good work my friend.

Respect.


Heres the early 90s.
