Ok, just assumed it would be a Shimano chrome job or the Kalloy copy that I've got on my '91 Spectre and 91' Oracle. :?
Don't like it, it's not staying :P

Nice. I had a 1989 (I think) CB Spirit. 400LX in 'Pearlescent Aquamarine'. Always coveted the Cape Wrath of the same year as it was in black and looked stealthy :-)

Cheers, coincidentally I was looking at this very bike yesterday whilst performing a C-virus facilitated cleaning/re-organisation of my workshop before starting the next build... this one only ever got a service and then prepared for my kids visiting friends to use.
But it does deserve a deep clean and photo shoot.....

Lovely, the metallic Aquamarine looks even better in the flesh doesn’t it?
Give us a nudge if you start a clean-up thread!

It does. I'd recently seem pictures of yours, so when scrolling ads after work, the colour jumped out and i was on my way to pick it up.

I'll post it up tomorrow.
