Great bikes these, do you have the off-road wheels for it too?

no unfortunately. it would have been good to own both set of wheels, but ive only got the supermoto ones. i thought about converting it back to mx when i bought the bike but i think id prefer the way it looks now

These plastics were delivered last week, they have been repainted badly from the original white into 2 different shades of red... But now that i have the rear mudguard ive been after, the rest will probably be kept as spares

The two mudguards are a different fit, even though they are from the same bike/ model. It looks like its gonna need a bit of altering before it fits Image

The erm 'tail tidy' is just a tail piece which has been hacked off another bike and was screwed onto the mudguard using plastic number plate screws... Nothing like doing the job properly is there? :lol:
Image

i stripped the old paint with cheap wilko value paint remover, and filled the holes with mitre bond (a strong super glue with activator spray) then sanded level Image

and after 5 coats of primer... it'll be painted black after ive drilled new holes into it Image
