About the only thing you didn't explain fully was... the handle bars. What are they exactly?
What's the paintwork plans for the tinware?
I bought the bars locally. Genuine A.N. 06-4132, UK or EU Interstate I think.
They were 31 1/2" wide, 2 1/2 rise, 5" pull back.
Too wide for me - especially if I use bar end mirrors.
So, I cut 2" off each end and they're just under 28" total width now.
It's all about triangulation for me. Wide bars tend to open me up too much - and get uncomfortable on a long ride.
Paint work, hmmm - I haven't been drinking this time so hopefully it won't come across as a ramble.
I used to be an Auto Spraypainter back in another life so I'll be brushing the cobwebs off and hitting it with 2 pack basecoat and clear - when the time comes.
I'll be making my own stencils for the logos (on a vinyl cutter). I'll stick them on a silver base, spray with either Gunmetal Grey Met or Graphite, peel the decals off and Topcoat Clear the lot.
No colour on this one - 50 shades of Grey so to speak.
You do know that Matt supplies stencils for his very subtly modified / neat version of the logo's ?
