Here it is again, in guise #3!

The bike was originally slime green, the I had her painted by Argos satin black with 1992 graphics. Then I sold her. :oops:

Having regretted this I bought it back and have had it powder coated silver (the P7 is only temporary until I get the correct CLOCKWORK sticker made up).

Green bolts, M737 XT, some choice componentry. Should be good.

I will keep you all updated as the build progresses.

NB: The eagle eyed will have noted that this is a 1998. Yes it is but as the componentry and 'soul' if the bike belong to an earlier era I felt she would be a bit scared in the 1998-> section. :D
